Previously, the reported timeline was the security guard, Jesus Campos, was shot and wounded in the leg, by the Las Vegas mass murderer at about 10:17- 10:19, 10 minutes *after* he started shooting at the
In the revised time-line, authorities are saying Campos was shot and wounded in the leg at 9:59 p.m., as he approached the door of suite 135, on the 32nd floor. *before* the shooting on the crowd started.
There are many changes in possible scenarios that come with this revelation, and many questions.
The security guard is reported as responding to a door ajar alarm on another room. Why was he shot? Sheriff Lombardo says Campos reported the shooting immediately, but the police did not know about it until they discovered him on the 32nd floor, wounded, about 18 minutes later. From abcnews.go.com:
On Monday, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo announced a change to the sequence of events that occurred on Oct. 1, saying a security guard who encountered Paddock was actually shot at 9:59 p.m. local time, minutes before the 64-year-old unleashed a hail of gunfire on unsuspecting concertgoers.
Previously, authorities had said that the security guard, Jesus Campos, was shot after Paddock had opened fire on the crowd below.
Lombardo said Campos immediately reported to hotel security that he had been shot. However, responding officers did not know Campos had been shot until they arrived on the 32nd floor and encountered him, Lombardo said.
According to the new time-line, the shooting on the crowd did not happen for another 6+ minutes. That is a long time for no action to be taken on the shooting of a security guard. The mass killer may have panicked at the vision of the security guard. It may have preempted his plans, precipitating

The hotel does not appear to have notified the police. Then all H*ll breaks loose...
So he wasnt the hero that saved the day.
Very strange. Some posters on FR have been asking questions about the wounded guard, and suggesting that his situation is a key to this mystery. They are right.
This timeline changes things quite a bit.

Are they sure about this timeline?
Hmmmm, was he going to start shooting soon, because wasn’t the festival on its LAST SONG when he started??
The change in the timeline makes this event even stranger.
Someone needs to ask Jesus.
The only sane answer is someone’s timestamp is wrong on a log or video. As the above seems highly unlikely.
If police had to breach the locked interior door to the second room...then Paddock was obviously not running back and forth between the two broken windows. Who was in the second room and where did he go?
And they just figured this out? Or just decided to tell us?

A hotel guest guns down a hotel security guard and they don't call the police? Say WHAT????????????
“a security guard who encountered Paddock was actually shot at 9:59 p.m. local time, minutes before the 64-year-old unleashed a hail of gunfire on unsuspecting concertgoers”
Nine minutes. What the heck was the security guy doing for nine minutes? Or 6+ minutes as reported in the thread’s article. Either way, anyone else would have gotten to the elevator for security and pushed the lobby button. There’s a phone in the elevator to call for help but he had a phone on him as all reports claim he immediately called it in. Now, if he called his supervisor and the supervisor did nothing or the supervisor called 911 and it wasn’t relayed to the officers on scene, we don’t know. But someone dropped the ball. If it was the Mandalay (I suspect it was), they’d be paying everyone to keep it under wraps. They’re fixing to get some very bad publicity if this plays out.
I would imagine that they must have a couple of shootings a year to be in this slow-to-react attitude, in regards to the VIP floors.
Ditto what you said.
Why are there so many guns in the room? I suspect Paddock was an arms dealer engaged in money laundering through the casinos. Perfect opportunity for a terrorist to seize upon because you significantly hamper investigators' ability to isolate exactly what happened.
All the terrorist had to do was bring a security guard's uniform in a bag to his meeting with Paddock and VOILA, the rest is history.
Then what did the hotel do in all of that time?
This certainly has become curious. My understanding of the explanation for Paddock shooting Campos was that Paddock had been shooting for several minutes and figured the jig was up, so bought himself some time by shooting the guard—seeing Campos on his camera/monitor he shot through the door.
Now they’re saying Paddock shooting at the crowd had not begun? And after the guard was shot, Mandalay did nothing, at least long enough for Paddock to kill and injure hundreds?
Why would he shoot the guard if he had not started shooting? Why would the guard be passing by his door?
In any event, after shooting Campos in the leg Paddock then began shooting down on the crowd. This is the current story?
I wondered why in the news conference sheriff Lombardo, the FBI flak (”Let’s not go there”) and another gomer kept parroting, “The facts are all that matter.”
If the hotel was in on it and the guard self inflects the whole thing fits.
