    More than 20 dead in Las Vegas massacre

    More than 100 people are wounded, as police shoot dead the gunman on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

    Lone gunman carried out shooting

    "We have no idea what his belief system was," Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo says.

    "Right now, we believe he was the sole aggressor and the scene is static."

    He shot down on concertgoers from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

    The suspect, a local resident who police have not named, was shot dead by police at the hotel.

    It is not believed he belonged to any militant groups.

    Absolutely horrible. 

    This is the worse mas shooting in US history 
    400+ people were shot

    THE Death toll is 50 now, but that is sure to rise. I bet to 75 or 100 when all is said and done. I am absolutely at a loss for words. If you listen to the gun fire, it is clearly an automatic rifle. The first sounds like it could be a belt fed machine gun?

    Hilarious. Well, the good news at least is that to find out more about him the police will simply have to follow the trail of Qurans and passports he dumped from a sack on his way out before making a getaway on his magical flying prayer rug that three people on Youtube who never show up again miraculously filmed with a potato.

    It sounds like it, but it's hard to pin down what gun was used exactly - it actually sounds like an M240 with the accompanying echo from being fired in a huge open space.

    Las Vegas Sheriff: We Couldn't Have Prevented Attack


    Las Vegas law enforcement says they don't believe they could have prevented the massacre Sunday night at the Route 41 Harvest festival.

    ....

    "This individual was described as a lone wolf; I don’t know how it could have been prevented," said Lombardo. "We didn’t have any prior knowledge to this individual. It wasn’t evident that he had any weapons in his room. We have determined that there has been employees going to and fro to his room and nothing nefarious was noticed at this point."

    So far authorities have not specified any possible motive for Paddocks' murderous campaign. Paddock's brother, Eric Paddock, told the Daily Mail Monday morning that he and his family are "dumbfounded" by the actions, having seen no indications prior to the massacre that his brother was capable of such an act.

    "He was just a guy. Something happened, he snapped or something," said Eric Paddock, who lives in Orlando, Florida, and said he does not have much contact with his brother. "He has no political affiliation, no religious affiliation, as far as we know. This wasn't a terror attack."

    Statements from authorities seem to confirm Eric Paddock's assessment that it was not an act of terror.

    On Monday, ISIS took credit for the attack, claiming the shooter had "converted to Islam several months ago." However, the FBI has shot down that claim, saying they have no evidence that Paddock was connected to any international terrorist group.

    CBS Exec: No Sympathy For Vegas Victims Because 'Country Music Fans Are Often Republican'




    A top legal executive at CBS, Hayley Geftman-Gold, is in hot water after she reacted to horrifying events in Las Vegas by posting on Facebook that she was "not even sympathetic" to shooting victims because "country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

    “If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing,” Geftman-Gold wrote on the social media platform, ostensibly referring to Congressional action in the wake of Sandy Hook. “I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters.”

    Las Vegas Shooter's 'Psychopathic' Father Was On FBI's Most-Wanted List


    The father of Stephen Craig Paddock — the man who opened fire on a country music concert in Las Vegas on Sunday night, killing at least 58 and injuring over 500 — was a "psychopath" with possible "suicidal tendencies" who was once on the FBI's most-wanted list.

    Benjamin Hoskins Paddock, the father of the Las Vegas shooter, was a serial bank robber and con-man who a 1960s FBI escaped prisoner poster described as "psychopathic" and "extremely dangerous." In fact, he was so dangerous that he was put on the FBI's most-wanted list for a number of years after escaping prison in the midst of a 20-year sentence for robbing a series of Arizona banks.

    "Since he has utilized firearms in previous crimes, has employed violence in attempting to evade arrest and has been diagnosed as being psychopathic, [Benjamin Hoskins] Paddock should be considered extremely dangerous," reads an escaped federal prisoner poster issued by the FBI after Paddock escaped prison in 1968.

    Can't even wait 24hrs before 

    Hillary makes Vegas shooting political  

    • Hillary Clinton tweeted Monday that 'grief isn't enough,' encouraging Americans to 'stand up to the NRA' in the aftermath of the Las Vegas shooting
    • Clinton called out the powerful gun lobbying group for backing legislation that would make it easier for Americans to purchase firearm silencers 
    • 'Imagine the deaths if the shooter had a silencer, which the NRA wants to make easier to get,' Clinton said 
    • The former Democratic nominee was the first high-profile Democrat to lash out at the NRA in the aftermath of the Las Vegas massacre, which killed at least 50
    • She was later joined by Sen. Chris Murphy, who represented Sandy Hook, and Mark Kelly and Gabby Giffords, who held a press conference on Capitol Hill 

    Hillary Clinton led the Democratic charge for new gun control measures in the hours after a shooter in Las Vegas left more than 50 dead. 

     'Our grief isn't enough. We can and must put politics aside, stand up to the NRA, and work together to try to stop this from happening again,' the former Democratic nominee for president said. 

    She called out the National Rifle Association for backing legislation that would make it easier for Americans to purchase gun silencers.

    'People are dying, you're running away': Medal of Honor winning veteran Dakota Meyer slams King of Instagram Dan Bilzerian for filming himself running away moments after he saw a woman shot in the head in Las Vegas


    Professional poker player Bilzerian - who tried and failed to become a Navy SEAL - constantly posts photos of himself alongside his arsenal of weapons, working out topless, or surrounded by a bevvy of Instagram models.

    But Afghanistan veteran Dakota Meyer, who is married to Sarah Palin's daughter Bristol, says that when faced with real danger, he simply ran away.

    Meyer's attack came after Bilzerian posted a video, in the immediate aftermath of the shooting, of himself fleeing the carnage at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, where he claimed to have seen a girl 'get shot in the head'.

    CBS says that it has terminated an executive in its legal department after discovering that she'd posted heartless Facebook comments about the victims of Monday's massacre in Las Vegas.

    Hayley Geftman-Gold, a Vice President and Senior Counsel at the network, posed on social media that she was "not even sympathetic" to shooting victims, because ""country music fans often are Republican gun toters."

    "If they wouldn’t do anything when children were murdered I have no hope that Repugs will ever do the right thing. I’m actually not even sympathetic bc country music fans often are Republican gun toters," Geftman-Gold commented on a friend's status about Sunday night's tragedy, referring, it seems, to Congressional lack of action in the wake of Sandy Hook.

    CBS issued a statement to media almost immediately after Geftman-Gold's comments began appearing on news websites, calling the executive's comments "deeply unacceptable," and noting that Geftman-Gold has already been terminated.

    HEARTBREAKING: Husband Heroically Saves Wife During Vegas Shooting, Loses His Life

    The temptation to focus attention solely on the perpetrator of horrifically evil acts like the one seen in Las Vegas, where a deranged shooter massacred 58 people and left 515 injured, can sometimes blind us to the victims and their heartbreaking stories.

    One such story profiled on Fox News involves a dedicated husband who heroically sacrificed his own life so that his wife could keep hers.

    "Sonny Melton, of Paris, Tenn., was protecting his wife when a gunman aiming from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel-casino unleashed a hail of bullets on an outdoor country music festival below," reports Fox News.

    Vegas Shooter Passed All Federal Background Checks, Had Ingredients For BOMB In His Vehicle

    Late Monday afternoon, NBC News reported that the two Nevada gun shops that sold firearms to Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock stated that he had passed all relevant federal background checks. According to David Familglietti, owner of New Frontier Armory, Paddock bought a rifle and a shotgun. “The rifle was not fully automatic and a shotgun isn’t capable of shooting from where he was,” Famiglietti explained. “My staff takes their job very seriously and if there were any ‘red flags’ the sale would have halted immediately.”

    Christopher Sullivan of Guns & Guitars didn’t say what guns Paddock had purchased, but said, “All necessary background checks and procedures were followed, as required by local, state, and federal law.”

    All of this comes after The Wall Street Journal reported earlier today that “investigators found 18 to 20 firearms, some fully automatic, in a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.” It is unclear whether a so-called “bump stock,” which allows semi-automatic rifles to simulate automatic rifle fire by using recoil from each shot to push the trigger into the shooter’s stationary trigger finger, were attached to the gun.

    Las Vegas concert gunman dead as police hunt woman

    Witnesses say people were gunned down as they ran for their lives and describe dozens of bodies "piled up".

    At least 20 people have been killed and more than 100 injured after a man opened fire at a country music festival in Las Vegas.

    It is believed the gunman was shooting down from the Mandalay Bay Hotel, and police said he was killed on the 32nd floor.

    They are hunting 62-year-old Marilou Danley, an Asian woman described as a "person of interest" and believed to be his roommate.

    Police rule out Australian woman's involvement in Las Vegas shooting

    David Wroe

    A woman sought after a shooting in Las Vegas that left more than 50 people dead is Australian, but is not believed to be involved in the incident, police said in a statement.

    Marilou Danley, 62, was named as a person of interest in the shooting at a country music festival that killed 58 people and injured 515, the deadliest mass shooting in US history. She is an Australian citizen who lived on the Gold Coast for more than a decade.

    Las Vegas shooting: what we know

    With over 50 killed and more than 515 injured, the shooting in Las Vegas is the deadliest in US history.

    After sending out a request for her whereabouts, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement late on Monday night that "detectives have made contact with her and do not believe she is involved with the shooting on the strip."​

    However, in an update on Tuesday morning, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Sheriff Joe Lombardo said the gunman's female companion was still a "person of interest" and she would be interviewed when she returned to the US. Ms Danley was reportedly in the Philippines at the time of the shooting.

    Las Vegas shooting sees gun company shares SOAR after massacre

    THE Las Vegas shooting has seen gun manufacturer stocks jump in a chilling reaction to the massacre.

    The worst mass shooting in US history prompted investors to buy shares in American Outdoor Brands, owner of Smith & Wesson firearms and Gemtech silencers, as well as Sturm, Ruger & co. 

    Stocks initially surged by as much as seven per cent. 

    Calls for a crackdown on gun ownership in the US has intensified in the wake of the massacre, meaning there is likely to be a surge in sales from people fearing increased restrictions.

    The threat to purchases has previously prompted a rush to buy weapons before any new rules are introduced.

    ARSENAL: Photos Of Hotel Room Show Las Vegas Gunman's Weapons And Ammo


    A Fox affiliate in Boston, Massachusetts, has obtained exclusive photos showing guns, ammunition, a bi-pod, and hammer, reportedly taken inside Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock's hotel room at the Mandalay Bay Hotel & Casino.

    The photos show just two guns in Paddock's arsenal of 23 weapons, which included a handgun and rifles outfitted with scopes and stabilizers, and modified to shoot as automatic weapons. Police also found hundreds of rounds of ammunition, and a hammer, which Paddock used to break out two windows in his two adjoining hotel suites.

    Kirstie Alley unleashes series of bizarre tweets blaming Vegas massacre on psychiatric drugs

    • Kirstie Alley, 66, sent out a series of bizarre tweets less than 24 hours after the mass shooting in Las Vegas that left 59 people dead
    • In her missives the Scientologist and actress suggested mass shooters have 'psychiatric drugs' in common
    • Alley and other Scientologist celebrities have previously come out against using psychiatric drugs to treat issues, and instead people should be taking vitamins
    • There is no evidence that the Vegas shooter took psychiatric drugs before the rampage that left 59 dead 

    Scientologist and actress Kirstie Alley has taken to Twitter to say the common denominator of mass shooters- beyond guns- is psychiatric drugs.

    Alley's series of tweets was unleashed less than a day after Stephen Paddock, 64, shot and killed 59 people during a country music festival in Las Vegas

    'We have to solve the mystery of why there were no 'shooters' or almost 0 before the 1980's. I know one common denominator other than guns,' Alley tweeted Monday, suggesting Paddock opened fire due to his use of prescription drugs.

    Even more bizarre is the lack of verified reports on the matter of Paddock being on any sort of medication.

    Like no one noticed him lugging 23 assault weapons up to his room with his weekly groceries.

    What's with the "BOSTON" overlay on this left hand image and part of a curtain or screen perhaps.  The article says this photo was taken in the man's bedroom quote:

    "ARSENAL: Photos Of Hotel Room Show Las Vegas Gunman's Weapons And Ammo"

     but the image is overlaid with something saying BOSTON and some sort of red and grey logo plus a small yellow and black hammer.   A check of the image source says "boston.jpg".  Note also the reversed out  numerals possibly a 25 in the r.h. pic.    If the picture is in a Las Vegas hotel bedroom why is it entitled boston.jpg. 
    Oh, seems there's a media outlet in Boston called BOSTON 25.

    Vegas Shooter Filmed Himself During Slaughter, May Have Left A Note; Suicide Photo Emerges


    Oct 3, 2017 4:26 PM

    Warning: Graphic Content Below

    Millionaire Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock set up a camera inside his hotel room to capture his deadly shooting rampage on film, as well as various other surveillance equipment in the hallway to alert him as cops closed in on him, according to the NY Post. Citing ABC, the Post writes that the shooter had at least one lens set up to tape himself as he fired hundreds of rounds on thousands of unsuspecting concertgoers several hundred yards below his Mandalay Bay casino suite.

    Also, knowing that the cops would eventually catch up to him, he also reportedly wired cameras in the hallway outside his room so he could see when the heat was getting close, the Daily Mail reported.

    According to his brother, Paddock, 64, had made millions from real estate deals; he also owned two planes and several properties across the US, and seemed normal apart from his passion for gambling large sums.  He'd also secretly amassed a massive arsenal of no less than 42 firearms with at least one of those an automatic, while another two had been modified with legal bump-stock devices that allows semi-automatic guns to give full-auto fire of up to 800 rounds a minute. Several had scopes, and packed military-grade ammunition.

    Paddock took 23 of those guns into his Mandalay Bay suite over several days and set up two rifles on tripods at windows overlooking the Route 91 Harvest country music festival. According to the Daily Mail, Thousands of rounds of ammunition were also found in the suite, enabling him to fire repeatedly over the course of 72 minutes. His car had several pounds of a fertilizer used in bomb-making.

    A look outside his room via ABC:

    And inside:

    And, as we now learn, he also reportedly set up a camera in his room, apparently to film the mass murder, and others in the hallway to capture police arriving. Before carrying out the shooting, he used a hammer-like tool to smash out two window in his room which he used to fire out of.

    Paddock had lived in 27 residences in Nevada, Florida and Texas as an adult, but other than that he had apparently lived a quiet and unremarkable life - and the reason for the most deadly assault in American history is still a mystery.  Explanations have been offered for his motive, but law enforcement has
    remained coy. It has been suggested debts, a relationship collapse, or
    his family history may have contributed to the his drive to kill.

    Here's a video of the room 32135 said in the media to be the one he stayed in as filmed by previous occupants. Somehow the carpet pattern in the photo looks distorted or over exposed in all photos of the guns from that in the video. And while there is a cylindrical post in the room it appears shrunken in size in the photo in comparison to the video.  The bathroom decor in the video matches the official bathroom image also.  However two rounded back chairs which are in the video  have been placed together giving the appearance of a bath.

    The girlfriend of Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock, who killed 58 people and wounded 527 others over the weekend, was met by federal investigators after landing at LAX airport in Los Angeles on Tuesday. 

    Marilou Danley, who authorities described as a 'person of interest' following Sunday's shooting spree, arrived in the US at 7.17pm PST after a flight from the Philippines, according to ABC News.  She was seen being wheeled through LAX in a wheelchair in footage obtained by NBC News

    The 62-year-old was wearing a hat and light blue jacket and was pushing a black suitcase in front of her. It is not yet clear where she was then taken or why she was in the wheelchair.

    A police official revealed she voluntarily returned to the US in a bid to 'clear her name' of any involvement in the massacre. Her siblings have since broken their silence saying she was unaware of Paddock's motives.

    This morning a report claimed that Marilou may have been married to two men at once, used two Social Security numbers, lived in multiple addresses in several different states and had two dates of birth.

    I'm afraid I don't agree with that conclusion, and I'll share my thoughts as to why. 

    Mainly, after witnessing what transpired in Boston, London and Manchester, I don't know if what is shown is as convincing as it is leading, and what was filmed could have just as easily been a bunch of actors laying on their backs with red paint splashed around. It looks just like that little area in Boston with everyone laying about after the "bombing".

    To me, there's at least three big problems with that video:

    (1) No one is panicking whatsoever. That simply is unrealistic in a situation with that level of supposed carnage. There are plenty of real situations filmed with similar chaos and people are absolutely nuts from start to finish. There isn't a single raised voice, a single flash of fear, or anything that would suggest something really traumatic just happened. The guy in the video almost feels like he's trying to get people worked up in the absence of any emotion.

    (2) The guy's interaction with the other guy at the end is highly suspect: "Who are you?" "I, uh, err, I'm just an innocent bystander..." Was he a crisis actor interacting with staff in some way during the exercise or event? And his mother is a nurse, but apparently he feels his time is better spent going from "body" to "body" filming instead of rushing to the next living person and giving some sort of aid. Again, it simply feels contrived and scripted. 

    (3) And the most telling situational error of them all in my opinion: there isn't a single siren to be heard. 50 dead and 500 injured, and not a single siren anywhere. Not a single flashing light from an ambulance or police car. And yet, EMTs are apparently present but not working according to the guy. Hospitals throughout the whole city would be absolutely jam-packed with people with that number of casualties. I wonder what would happen if we called those hospitals to see how many patients they took in?

    This is what I think happened:

    (a) As per usual in these events, there was indeed a shooting, but on a much, much, much smaller scale.

    (b) A bunch of crisis actors, who were hired via Craigslist or elsewhere (we've posted the advert calling for these people above I think), were also on the scene.

    (c) Reality and fantasy are mixed in order to create the desired conclusion.

    Las Vegas Sheriff Says He Thinks Shooter Had Help, Planned Escape


    Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said during a Wednesday evening press conference that he believes alleged gunman Stephen Paddock had help and that there is evidence that suggests he didn’t plan to die in his hotel room.

    Lombardo said that he has seen evidence that suggests that Paddock planned to escape but he cannot reveal what that evidence is at this point. Later in the press conference he double-downed on his statement and added that so far no one has been able to dismiss the theory.

    .....


    Lombardo also indicated that based on the stockpile of different weapons Paddock had that he had to have had help at some point.

    “He had to have some help at some point,” Lombardo said. “Maybe he’s a super-guy. … maybe he’s super-yahoo, was working out all this on his own, but it would be hard for me to believe that.”

    Las Vegas shooting: Stephen Paddock 'spent decades hoarding guns and did NOT act alone'

    STEPHEN Paddock could have spent more than 20 years plotting his devastating attack on innocent people in Las Vegas, police have revealed.

    Officials also believe Paddock may not have acted alone.

    Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said: “At face value he had to have some help at some point and we want to ensure that that’s the answer

    “Maybe he was a superhuman who figured this out all on his own but it would be hard for me to believe that.”

    Police confirmed the shooter “meticulously” planned his strike on the Route 91 Harvest Festival from his vantage points in the Mandalay Hotel.

    Officers, who are investigating the double life of the cold-blooded killer, believe he spent decades acquiring weapons and living a “secret life”.

    MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Official story of Las Vegas shooting unravels; physical impossibility of lone gunman senior citizen makes narrative ludicrous

    Monday, October 02, 2017 by: Mike Adams

    Image MISSION IMPOSSIBLE Official story of Las Vegas shooting unravels physical impossibility of lone gunman senior citizen makes narrative ludicrous

    (Natural News) It’s all hogwash. The “official” narrative of how things went down in the Las Vegas massacre is so full of holes that it begs the question of just how deep the truth about this attack really goes.

    What we know for sure is that, yes, 59 people were killed (so far) and hundreds were wounded. This wasn’t a “hoax” shooting — people actually were shot, wounded and killed (and our prayers go out to all their families for this horrific tragedy). Yet the official narrative that claims Stephen Paddock — a retired, 64-year-old accountant with absolutely no firearms training, no gun experience and no physical stamina — was somehow able to expertly wield a highly complex (and physically demanding) weapon system for 10 sustained minutes is total nonsense.

    Clarification added 10/4/2017: My contention in this story is that Stephen Paddock couldn’t have pulled this off all by himself. That does not mean he wasn’t involved in the shooting. He could have fired weapons himself, alongside others who were also firing weapons from either his hotel room or from different locations. This story does not exclude his involvement in the shooting. Some people are misinterpreting this story as claiming that Paddock never fired a shot. That isn’t at all what this story states.

    Even highly trained Navy Seals would have a difficult time running a full auto weapon for 10 minutes straight. Such weapon systems are brutal on the operator. They require tremendous strength, stamina and expert troubleshooting to keep running. Full-auto weapons overheat and jam. They demand incredible strength to keep aimed on target. They require expert reloading and weapons clearing in the case of jams, and the hotel room would have been so full of smoke and powder residue that it would be almost impossible to keep breathing from that enclosed space.

    Far from what the firearms-illiterate media claims, these are not systems that any Joe off the street can just pick up and use to effortlessly mow down 500 people. Running these systems requires extensive training, experience and stamina. It is physically impossible for a guy like Stephen Paddock to operate such a system in the sustained, effective manner that we witnessed, especially when shooting from an elevated position which throws off all the ranging of the weapon system.

    Chilling photo shows Air Force One flying past broken windows on Mandalay Bay hotel that Vegas gunman shot from

    from The Business Insider

    A chilling photo from President Donald Trump's trip to Las Vegas on Wednesday showed Air Force One flying past the broken windows on the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino that a gunman fired from days earlier.

    The photo, taken by Reuters photographer Mike Blake, showed the president's plane in the air shortly after taking off from Las Vegas' McCarran International Airport, which is across from the Mandalay Bay.

    Trump visited Las Vegas to meet with victims and first responders from Sunday night's shooting, the deadliest in modern US history. Fifty-nine people were killed and more than 500 were injured when 64-year-old Stephen Paddock began shooting from his hotel room on the 32nd floor into the crowd at a country music festival across the street.

    Paddock killed himself as police were closing in on his hotel room. Investigators have not yet disclosed a motive.

    It's said Paddock broke windows in room above  with this hammer. (with the yellow handle in l.h. image). How and why would he have broken glass to that extreme height as windows appear to reach from floor to almost ceiling height?  He was only planning to shoot downward.
    The suite has what the Mandalay Bay calls a 180-degree view with floor-to-ceiling windows as well as a full-size bar an in-house safe and two TVs

    According to police scanner transmissions, 72 minutes passed between the first shots fired and when officers breached the hotel room where Paddock was holed up. Police believe he was firing into the crowd for about 9 to 11 minutes, unloading about 20 volleys of bullets from hundreds of yards away.

    Another Day, Another U.S. Mass Shooting

    Global Research, October 04, 2017

    from Global Research

    Featured image: Stephen Paddock (Source: WFTV.com)

    “Turn down the music. You know uncle Stephen goes berserk when one disturbs his sleep.” /snark

    One Stephen Paddock rented a room on the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel. Over three days, he brought some ten guns into it. The room was chosen to overlook the space of on upcoming open air concert. 

    Last night Paddock waited for the concert to start and then fired his automatic weapons into the crowd. At least fifty-eight people died and some 400 were wounded. The murderer later killed himself.

    Paddock is portrait as a reclusive, well-off retiree and is thought to be a professional gambler. There is no hint yet of the man’s motive. He is white and has a Christian name. Thus, according to U.S. standards, his killing spree was not terrorism.

    The state of Nevada allows about anyone to buy and own automatic rifles. With one pull of the trigger one can fire off a full 30 round magazine within a few seconds.  The use of such machine guns leave the victims in an attack like this no time to escape. With a bit of training, a change of magazines takes less than five seconds. The man must have had more than a thousand rounds to cause such a number of casualties.

    The statistics paint a horrible picture of gun violence in the U.S. There is now one mass shooting, with more than four victims, per day:

    First 9 months of 2017:
    -11,572 gun deaths
    -23,365 gun injuries
    -271 mass shootings
    -1,508 unintentional shootings

    Here's a question.   How did Paddock use his girlfriends ID to register at the hotel when she would have needed it to visit the Phillipines?

    from Business Insider
    Authorities said Paddock, used identification of Danley's at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, prompting authorities to track her down. Since then, more details have emerged about Danley's past.

    Body Language Analysis No. 4082: Brother of Stephen Paddock (Las Vegas Shooter) - Nonverbal and Emotional Intelligence (VIDEO, PHOTOS)



    The most deadly mass shooting in modern US history occurred last night in Las Vegas, Nevada during a country music concert. The gunman, Stephen Paddock, shot from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel/Resort. He used multiple automatic weapons and took his own life. At the time of this post, at least 59 people have been killed and a minimum of 527 have been wounded. At this time law enforcement reports that Stephen Paddock had no criminal history.

    What follows is a partial nonverbal analysis of one of the interviews conducted earlier today of Eric Paddock - the brother of the alleged shooter, Stephen Paddock.

    After this interview, the public became aware that Paddock's father (Benjamin Paddock) had robbed a bank and upon escaping from prison was one of the FBI's ten most wanted fugitives in 1969.





    At multiple times during this television interview, Eric Paddock gestured with his left hand up to his temple - initially with his fingers and thumb held together - then, as his arm and hand were moving away from his head - his digits splaying apart. This dynamic illustrator is often used to express an event or idea which "Blew My Mind/Mind Blowing" - as well as a sudden idea, insight, or realization.

    1,600 Rounds of Ammo, 50 Pounds of Explosives Material Found in Las Vegas Shooter’s Car: Police

    Posted 8:19 AM, October 5, 2017, by CNN Wire, Updated at 01:59PM, October 5, 2017

    Chilling new clues suggest the man behind the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history planned to inflict even more carnage.

    Stephen Paddock didn’t just have 23 weapons in his Mandalay Bay hotel suite, which he turned into a sniper’s nest to kill 58 Las Vegas concertgoers.

    He also had more than 50 pounds of explosives and 1,600 rounds of ammunition in his car in the hotel parking lot, police said.

    Investigators now believe Paddock intended to survive the massacre, Las Vegas police Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Wednesday.

    “He was doing everything possible to see how he could escape,” Lombardo said, declining to detail specifics.

    But what motivated Paddock to kill dozens of strangers — and where he planned to strike next — remains a mystery.

    Law enforcement analyst: Car bomb possible

    Of the explosives found in Paddock’s car, authorities first found several pounds of ammonium nitrate, Lombardo said.

    Vegas shooter may have been targeting another music festival


    from NY Post

    October 3, 2017 | 4:08pm | Updated


    Las Vegas mass shooter Stephen Paddock may have had another target in mind.

    Last weekend, he tried to rent a room overlooking a music festival a few miles away from the scene of his carnage Sunday, a law-enforcement source told The Post.

    But Paddock couldn’t get a room that looked out onto the Life is Beautiful Festival, headlined by Chance the Rapper and Lorde and held in Sin City Sept. 22-24, the source said.

    That festival was held several miles north of the Route 91 music festival that the cowardly Paddock sprayed with bullets from a 32nd-floor suite in the Mandalay Bay casino on Sunday.

    Stephen Paddock booked rooms for Lollapalooza, possibly scouted Fenway Park before Las Vegas attack

    NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
    Updated: Thursday, October 5, 2017, 2:42 PM

    Gunman Stephen Paddock scouted major concerts including Lollapalooza and near Boston’s Fenway Park before he settled on shooting at a crowd in Las Vegas, according to reports.

    MAP: Mass Shootings Since Sandy Hook

    The 64-year-old mass murderer, whose rampage killed at least 58 people, looked at hotels near Fenway, a senior law enforcement official told NBC News. Hotels in the area typically have an obstructed view, however, if there is one at all.

    “The Boston Regional Intelligence Center is in contact with our local and federal law enforcement partners here and in Las Vegas and continues to monitor the situation,” the Boston Police Department said in a statement. “There is currently no known threat to the Metro Boston Homeland Security Region related to this incident.”

    Lollapalooza Stages Within Assault Rifle Firing Distance From Chicago Hotel

    By Tanveer Ali | October 5, 2017 12:00pm | Updated October 5, 2017 12:37pm

    from DNA INFO

    CHICAGO — Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas shooter, could've targeted a large swath of Lollapalooza had he checked in at a Michigan Avenue hotel this year during the music festival.

    Earlier Thursday, a source confirmed to DNAinfo that Paddock, the man behind the mass shooting that left more than 50 people dead and 500 wounded in Las Vegas, booked hotel rooms at the Blackstone Hotel at 636 S. Michigan Avenue during Lollapalooza, where crowds exceed 100,000 people each day.

    He never checked in.

    The distance from Stephen Paddock's window at the Mandalay Bay hotel was about 400 yards from the stage of the Route 91 Festival. 

    At least one of Paddock's weapons has been described as an “AR-15” type gun, which can fire up to 400, 600 and 900 yards. Had Paddock stayed at the Blackstone, he'd be able to reach three of four Lollapalooza stages with such a weapon, as well as the main entrance of the festival.

    Report: Vegas Shooter Seen With Mystery Woman Before Attack

    Investigators say Paddock was seen with a woman who was not his girlfriend in the days leading up to the attack.

    According to a report from ABC News, Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock was seen with a mystery woman in the days leading up to his deadly attack on a Las Vegas country music festival, where 58 people were killed and nearly 500 others were injured.

    "Officials briefed on the investigation told ABC News that investigators believe Paddock was seen with another woman, who was not his girlfriend, in the days before Sunday night's shooting," says the ABC report.

    As noted by the network, the woman was not Marilou Danley, a 62-year-old woman who has been identified by police officers as Paddock's girlfriend.

    Las Vegas Shooter's Girlfriend Describes His Disturbing Behavior




    According to NBC News, two former FBI officials "briefed on the matter" say that Danley told investigators that Paddock would sometimes lie in bed "moaning and screaming."

    "She said he would lie in bed, just moaning and screaming, 'Oh my God,'" the sources told NBC.

    According to the network, the sources say investigators believe Paddock "may have been in physical or mental anguish." However, two FBI officials told NBC that they have not yet been able to identify a clear motive — and do not believe that his mental health issues "had deteriorated to a point that would have triggered him to commit such an act."

    The Las Vegas Journal-Review reported Wednesday that Paddock was prescribed and filled the anti-anxiety medication diazepam in June; the same doctor prescribed the drug to Paddock the previous year. Diazepam can have potentially dangerous side effects, including aggressive behavior, decreased inhibitions, unusual risk-taking behavior, and suicidal thoughts.

    Other reports have indicated that Paddock at times exhibited some "bizarre" behavior in public, including an extreme aversion to dust and allergens.

    Marilou Danley was interviewed by FBI agents on Wednesday in a bid to discover the motive of Stephen Paddock, who is said to have spent decades acquiring weapons. 

    There was no evidence at this point to indicate that the mass shooting was terrorism, FBI Special Agent in Charge Aaron Rouse told a news conference, adding no one had been taken into custody as a suspected accomplice.

    Ms Danley said in a statement that she had no clue he was planning the massacre that left 59 dead and more than 500 injured in America's worst ever mass shooting.

    Vegas Shooter Investigators "Puzzled", Believe He Was Not Alone For Two Reasons


    Oct 6, 2017 5:01 PM Zero Hedge

    Two days ago, Clark County Sheriff Lombardo for the first time expressed his conviction that Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock had to have help at some point during the tragic mass shooting, either in the preparation or the execution stage, or both.

    “Look at this. You look at the weapon obtaining the different amounts of tannerite available, do you think this was all accomplished on his own, face value? You got to make the assumption he had to have help at some point, and we want to insure that’s the answer. Maybe he’s a super guy... Maybe he’s super — that was working out this out on his own, but it will be hard for me to believe that.”

    “Here’s the reason why, put one and one–two and two together, another residence in Reno with firearms, okay, electronics and everything else associated with larger amounts of ammo, a place in Mesquite, we know he had a girlfriend. Do you think this is all self-facing individual without talking to somebody, it was sequestered amongst himself.”

    Sheriff Lombardo says Las Vegas police took 75 minutes to breach hotel door from the time the first shots were fired https://t.co/aiaPBRqDqO pic.twitter.com/398hcWcAwv

    — ABC News (@ABC) October 5, 2017

    Additionally, Sheriff Lombardo suggested that far from a suicide mission, authorities had seen evidence that the shooter planned to survive and escape.

    To be sure, the question whether Paddock was alone or coordinated with some, still unknown collaborator, has been one of the most hotly debated topics involving last Sunday's tragic Las Vegas shooting.

    Now, providing further impetus to the speculation that Paddock was not alone, NBC News reports, citing senior law enforcement officials, that investigators are speculating that someone else may have been in the Las Vegas gunman's hotel room when he was registered there.

    According to NBC, the investigators are "puzzled" by two discoveries: First, a charger was found that does not match any of the cellphones that belonged gunman, Stephen Paddock. And second, garage records show that during a period when Paddock's car left the hotel garage, one of his key cards was used to get into his room. While there are several possible explanations for these anomalies, investigators said they "want to get to the bottom of it."

    Witness Details Horror of Las Vegas Shooting: ‘People Were Stacked on Top of One Another’

    By J.D. Heyman

    Posted on October 2, 2017 at 12:57pm EDT   FROM PEOPLE

    A few short hours ago, PEOPLE contributor Mark Gray was enjoying an annual tradition —the Route 91 Harvest festival at the Mandalay Bay Casino in Las Vegas. He’s still struggling to process the horror that came next.

    “I was there with friends. We’ve gone every year for the past four years,” says Gray, who was in an outdoor area outside a ground level suite on the left side of the stage when singer Jason Aldean took the stage at around 9:45 pm on Sunday.

    “It was just as normal as can be. He was on his fourth song and really just kind of starting, and I was talking two my friends when I started to hear ‘pop, pop, pop.’ It sounded like a firecracker, and one of the girls I was with said, ‘That just hit me. My leg stings.’ And then the girl next to her said, ‘It hit me too.’ ”

    Gray now thinks the women were hit by tiny bits of shrapnel — “Whatever it was, it wasn’t strong enough to break the denim of their jeans.” But by then, he saw that another woman, in the suite next door, was being dragged onto a couch.

    “I couldn’t see if she was bleeding, but she was pretty hysterical. Right at that moment we heard ‘pop pop pop’ again. We realized they were gun shots.”

    16 Unanswered Questions About The Las Vegas Shooting That Mainstream Media Doesn't Want To Talk About


    Oct 5, 2017 8:15 AM Zero Hedge

    Authored by Michael Snyder via The Economic Collapse blog,

    The public is not being told the truth about what really went down in Las Vegas. 

    As you will see below, the evidence is mounting that there were multiple shooters and that this was an operation that was planned well in advance.  But according to the mainstream media, a 64-year-old retired accountant with a flabby physique that had no military training whatsoever and that wasn’t very experienced with guns was able to pull the whole thing off all by himself.  We are being told that Paddock was a “lone wolf” that didn’t have any ties to terror groups, and since he is now dead nobody is ever going to be able to interrogate him. 

    But the American people definitely deserve some answers about what took place, and that means that all of us should keep digging.

    The following are 16 unanswered questions about the Las Vegas shooting that the mainstream media does not want to talk about…

    #1 Photos of Stephen Paddock’s hotel room have been leaked, and one of those photos appears to show a suicide note. Why hasn’t the public been told what is in that note?

    #2 Were there additional shooters?  A taxi driver reportedly captured video of an automatic weapon being fired out of a lower level window.  A video from another angle and brief footage captured by Dan Bilzerian also seem to confirm that automatic gunfire was coming from a floor much lower than the 32nd floor room that Stephen Paddock was located on.  And if you weren’t convinced by the first three videos, this fourth video should definitely do it.

    #3 Why were law enforcement authorities discussing “another suspect on the fourth floor”, and why isn’t the mainstream media talking about this?http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2017-10-04/16-unanswered-questions-about-las-vegas-shooting-mainstream-media-doesnt-want-talk-a

    The Las Vegas Massacre: The Media Narrative is Deceptive

    Global Research, October 07, 2017

    “Cram them full of non-combustible data, chock them so damned full of ‘facts’ they feel stuffed, but absolutely brilliant with information. Then they’ll feel they’re thinking, they’ll get a sense of motion without moving.” –
    Ray Bradbury, Fahrenheit 451, 1951

    “It is not only information that they need-in the age of Fact, information often dominates their attention and overwhelms their capacities to assimilate it….What they need , and what they feel they need , is a quality of mind that will help them to use information and to develop reason in order to achieve lucid summations of what is going on in the world and of what may be happening within themselves.” – C. Wright Mills, The Sociological Imagination, 1959

    The main stream media’s (MSM) ongoing narrative of the massacre in Las Vegas is clearly deceptive. This is nothing new. That is their modus operandi. Overwhelm people with a glut of information about a terrible tragedy and all becomes clear to people sick-at-heart over the deaths and injuries to innocent people. But it’s a false clarity engendered to confuse. Tell the story big and loud, and tell it repetitively from different angles, and it becomes hard to think straight, especially with the addition of all the sad stories of the innocent victims’ deaths and injuries. Who can forget the false official narrative that was spun amid the grief for all the innocent victims of the attacks of September 11, 2001. Few could think straight at the time.

    The MSM tells us in detail about Stephen Paddock’s gambling life, his houses and real estate dealings, how much he paid for them, his gun collection numbering 47, including all those in his hotel room (23), the alleged exact number of rounds he had in his car (1,600), how he shot from his hotel room windows, etc. We are told what his brother and girlfriend say about him: they are shocked; he was just a regular guy; they can’t explain it. We are told how he got the room gratis, how long he stayed there, and that he was planning to escape (they say this with a straight face). Told how many people died (59) and how many were injured (527), we remember these numbers vaguely, especially the latter. A regular person just feels overwhelmed by all the information, the numbers; saddened and depressed for all the victims, and more afraid.

    What the media do not say is that there is video and witness evidence that there were at least two more shooters, maybe more, one from a lower floor and another at the Bellagio Hotel that was locked down. This means that there was a conspiracy involved. They don’t mention this so that someone like me can do so and be branded a “conspiracy theorist,” the term created by the CIA to besmirch anyone questioning the official narrative of the JFK assassination.  You will notice that I am not – purposefully – linking to this evidence that I assert exists, nor am I raising more of the many questions surrounding this case. I am hoping that readers will research these matters themselves, and if they discover that there is evidence proving that there was more than one shooter, then, just as with the magic bullet absurdity in the JFK case, they will conclude, ipso facto, that the MSM are involved in a cover-up of a conspiracy, which is itself a conspiracy – a  factual conspiracy, not a conspiracy theory. And if that is so, they will ask why, and who is being protected. Cui bono? Why would the MSM push this narrative of the lonely crazed gunman?

    Investigators probing the deadly shooting rampage that unfolded on the Las Vegas Strip on Sunday night say that a piece of paper found in the gunman's hotel suite is not a suicide note.

    Still, there has been much speculation about what may have been on that paper. Police so far have not commented on that detail.

    Cops CRACK CODE written on Las Vegas killer’s note

    THE cryptic note left by Stephen Paddock in his hotel room has been deciphered by police looking for a possible motive.

    By Jamie Micklethwaite / Published 8th October 2017

    Paddock killed at least 58 people when he opened fire on the Route 91 country music harvest festival in Las Vegas.

    Leaked images from the killer’s hotel room showed his dead corpse along with a huge arsenal used to butcher the crowd.

    But rumours swirled after a note from the killer was left by his bed.

    CHILLING: The Las Vegas killer's note has been deciphered

    “He had written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there”

    Officer Dave Newton

    Cops were quick to deny that this was a suicide note, reporting that it contained a series of numbers in no order.

    Speculation has been rife as to what these numbers may mean, but investigators now believed they have the chilling answer.

    Officer Dave Newton of the Las Vegas Police Department’s K-9 unit said he noticed the pink slip of paper on Paddock’s nightstand.

    Las Vegas attack: It’s a set up, Stephen Paddock not the murderer – Neighbour

    From Daily Post

    Published on

    October 6, 2017

    Rick, a Marine police who claimed to be a former neighbour of Stephen Paddock, the Las Vegas mass murderer, has insisted that the man was set up, adding that he (Paddock) was never a murderer.

    Rick said the man was “100% not the kind of guy” to carry out the deadliest mass shooting in US history.

    Paddock, a 64-year-old retiree, allegedly murered 58 people and injuring more than 500 with an arsenal of “high powered” weapons from his hotel room.

    The murderous attack was carried out on music festival revelers, an action which has confused his family, friends and neighbours, who have described him as an “ordinary guy.”

    Daily Star UK reports that Rick, who claims to have lived close to Paddock in Mesquite, Nevada, for eight months, in an interview with US radio show, The Savage Nation, refused to believe the accountant was responsible for the bloodbath.

    Rick said Paddock was a “really nice guy” who “waved all the time.”

    He said, “I’m no longer in Mesquite, I’m in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, but I was his neighbour for about seven or eight months in Mesquite.

    “I can tell you 100% that this is not the kind of guy.
    “I was there working and I saw him pretty much every other day on my way home.”

    Shots fired at the Vegas Bellagio on the same night as the concert shooting?



    By Jon Rappoport——Previous Articles--October 5, 2017

    (To read about Jon’s mega-collection, The Matrix Revealed, click here.)


    Yesterday, I posted a video reporting shots fired through the front door of the Vegas Bellagio Hotel on the night of the concert attack.

    My, my. YouTube took the video down. We found a new link. Don’t know how long it’ll work.


    Why did YouTube take down the video? On what grounds? It was truthful and therefore disturbing? The video was taken inside the Bellagio by a guest, and she speaks at length about the shooting incident.

    I guess that’s too real. A new standard for violating the rules: “It’s too real, take it down.”

    'Suicide Note' Seen In Vegas Shooter's Hotel Room Finally Explained


    Oct 8, 2017 2:30 PM

    Authored by Aaron Nelson via TheAntiMedia.org,

    A mysterious piece of paper discovered last week, when photos from the Las Vegas gunman’s hotel room were leaked to the media, is now back in the news cycle. The pictures were published by numerous news outlets and shared by millions of people on social media.

    At the time the photos were published by the Daily Mail, police had not mentioned if Paddock left behind a note in his hotel room. Nevada Sheriff Joe Lombardo said police were investigating who leaked the crime scene photos.

    In one photo in particular, a white piece of paper or notepad on a side table next to a chair is visible, which caused some to speculate that it may have been a suicide note. Soon after the photos were leaked, Twitter was abuzz with chatter referencing the paper, with people spreading cover-up conspiracies and rumors that it was a suicide note.

    On Thursday, investigators revealed that the note in the photo was not, in fact, a suicide note but neglected to provide further details about the purpose of the note.

    In their first in-depth interview, which will air on CBS Sunday evening, the officers who stormed Stephen Paddock’s hotel room revealed new details to 60 Minutes that finally explain what was written on the mysterious note.

    Members of the law enforcement team who were the first to enter Stephen Paddock’s hotel room.

    “I could see on it he had written the distance, the elevation he was on, the drop of what his bullet was gonna be for the crowd,” said Officer Dave Newton from the Las Vegas Police in a preview clip of Sunday’s report.

     

    “So he had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there.”

    Paddock’s note was clearly not a suicide letter.

    Rather, it detailed bullet trajectory and included calculations about where he needed to aim his weapons to maximize accuracy and optimize his kill rate.

    KILLER'S BOAST TO HOOKER

    Hooker reveals how Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock acted out violent rape fantasies and bragged: ‘I was born bad’

    Stephen Paddock is described as being 'obsessive' and 'paranoid'.

    Updated: 8th October 2017, 2:40 am

    A HOOKER has told how Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock acted out violent rape fantasies and bragged: “I was born bad.”

    He boasted in text messages about his father Benjamin being a bank robber who escaped jail in 1969.


    AP:Associated Press
    An escort has told how Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock acted out violent rape fantasies

    He wrote: “I didn’t have anything really to do with him but the bad streak is in my blood. I was born bad.”

    The escort described him as “obsessive” and “paranoid” and said he would rant about conspiracy theories, including claiming 9/11 was an inside job by the US government.

    The woman, 27, saw Paddock, 64, around nine times from November 2015 to June 2016 when he would visit Las Vegas without his girlfriend Marilou Danley, 62.

    Paddock — who made £3.5million in 2015, mostly from gambling — would pay her up to £6,000 a time.

    Stephen Paddock Aggressive with Chicago Hotel Manager I Need to See Lollapalooza for My Anniversary

    10/6/2017 10:59 AM PDT   from TMZ

    Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock Got Aggressive with Chicago Hotel Manager Before Lollapalooza

    EXCLUSIVE

    Stephen Paddock got a guaranteed room with a view that overlooked the Lollapalooza festival because he was aggressive and demanding with the hotel manager ... TMZ has learned.

    TMZ broke the story ... Paddock booked 2 rooms at the Blackstone Hotel for early August that coincided with the music festival. He booked the rooms through Expedia, and requested rooms with a view of Grant Park, but he couldn't get a guarantee.

    As we reported, Paddock then called the hotel and someone entered a note in the computer that his view room was guaranteed ... despite the fact that's against hotel policy.

    What We Know About Las Vegas Gunman Stephen Paddock

    Intelligencer

    A family photo of Eric Paddock, left, and his brother, Stephen Paddock. Photo: John Raoux/AP

    Three days after the worst shooting in U.S. history, there’s still no indication of what the gunman’s motive might have been — and what has emerged about the life of Stephen Paddock creates an increasingly bizarre picture. The son of a notorious bank robber, he made a small fortune in real estate and business deals. As a retiree, the 64-year-old lived an itinerant lifestyle, seemingly centered around high-stakes gambling. He was not known to have strong political beliefs, an interest in firearms, a history of violence, mental-health issues, or anything else that might explain why he would commit such a horrific act. Here’s what we do know about the man who viciously took the lives of 58 people, and injured more than 520.

    The Shooting

    Paddock checked into room 135 on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas on Thursday, September 28. A hotel worker told the Times that he had a “do not disturb” sign on the door for three days, so no housekeepers entered the room.

    Hotel security guard who approached shooter's room hailed for bravery

    By Madison Park, CNN

    Updated 6:26 AM ET, Thu October 5, 2017


    Story highlights

    • Security guard was first to approach Stephen Paddock during Sunday's shooting
    • Jesus Campos is out of hospital, union president says

    (CNN)The security guard who first approached Stephen Paddock's hotel suite during the massacre in Las Vegas, was shot in the leg and continued to help clear rooms after getting injured, police said.

    Jesus Campos was identified as the security guard at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, said David Hickey, president of the union that represents the hotel's security guards. He was uncertain whether Campos was armed at the time.
    Campos is out of the hospital, but is expected to have surgery at a later date to remove a bullet, Hickey told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.
    When reached by ABC News, Campos said he was fine. "I was just doing my job," he said.
    Campos' actions may have distracted Paddock, possibly saving lives of many people below at the country music festival. The shooter killed 58 people and the attack left nearly 500 concertgoers wounded.
    Paddock began firing at concertgoers from his 32nd-floor suite beginning 10:05 p.m. Sunday, according to police.

    Campos had been in the building, patrolling the halls and was sent to the area of commotion. When he got to the shooter's floor, Campos found the stairwells had been barricaded and had to use the elevator, Hickey said he was told by local union officials.

     If Campos was already on the shooters floor what difference did it make if the stairwells were blocked?  And why did he need an elevator if he was already on that floor?  If you hadn't reached the floor wouldn't it be first choice to use the elevator?
    Why would Paddock block stairwells? He might have needed them to escape.
    Another story said it was the fire alarm set off by smoke from the gun that led police to Paddocks suite.

    Vegas Massacre Story Changes: Gunman Shot Security Guard Before Opening Fire On Crowd

    Tyler Durdens picture
    Oct 9, 2017 9:45 PM

    In a dramatic shift to the original Las Vegas shooting narrative, over a week after Stephen Paddock rained down bullets on a crowd and killed 58 people, late on Monday Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo drastically changed the timeline of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, and now the gunman allegedly opened fire on a security guard six minutes before he unleashed the massacre. Officials had previously claimed that Paddock, 64, shot Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos only after Paddock had started shooting at the Route 91 Harvest country-music festival from his 32nd-floor hotel suite on Oct. 1.

    The revision to the story also undermines the story surrounding the end of the shooting: officials had previously credited Campos, who was shot in the leg, with stopping the 10-minute assault by turning the gunman's attention to the hotel hallway, where Campos was checking an alert for an open door in another guest's room. However, with the revelation that Campos was shot before his mass shooting, officials now admit they don’t know why he stopped his attack.

    — NBC News (@NBCNews) October 9, 2017

    As part of the new "story", officials said that police officers who rushed to the hotel room when the shooting began didn't know a hotel security guard had been shot "until they met him in the hallway after exiting the elevator," Lombardo said.

    The security guard, Jesus Campos, was struck in the leg as the gunman, from behind his door, shot into the hallway on the 32nd floor. Paddock apparently detected Campos via surveillance cameras he set up outside his hotel suite, police have said.

    Paddock shot the guard at 9:59 p.m. local time, Lombardo said, shortly before raining down bullets on the Route 91 Harvest festival in an attack that began at 10:05 p.m. and lasted 10 minutes. Police officers found Campos when they arrived on the floor.

    And since it is not Campos who summoned the police, it is once again unclear what event catalyze the end of the mass shooting.

    Security guard shot prior to Las Vegas massacre, sheriff says

    LAS VEGAS -- The Mandalay Bay security guard being hailed as a hero in the Las Vegas shooting was shot before Stephen Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 Harvest Festival,  Las Vegas Metro Police Department sheriff Joseph Lombardo told reporters Monday.  

    According to Lombardo, Jesus Campos went to Paddock's floor to investigate an open door alarm — which was not in Paddock's room — just before the shooting unfolded. Investigators believe Paddock saw Campos on his security camera system. Paddock fired at Campos six minutes before he turned his rifle on the outdoor crowd, killing 58 people and wounding more than 450 others. Campos then radioed for police, who accosted Paddock in his hotel room where he committed suicide. 

    Further investigation revealed Paddock did some drilling on his doorway, but was unable to complete the task. Lombardo believes he did so to place a camera or rifle in the doorway.
