One revelation from the police department absolutely changed the situation regarding the massacre that occurred in Las Vegas.
According to the report, it was revealed that the shooter shot one security guard before he started unleashing the hail of gunfire on the crowd.
The previous reports stated differently.
Independent Journal Review reported that the company that owns the Mandalay Bay hotel, MGM Resorts International started to examine the timeline given by the law enforcement. The spokeswoman for MGM Resorts International, Debra DeShong stated that her company believes “what is currently being expressed may not be accurate.”
Without providing any proof or additional information, Debra said: “We cannot be certain about the most recent timeline.”
The massacre was inflicted by the 64-year old Stephen Paddock who started shooting from his hotel room located on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel. The shooting that occurred on October 1st, that killed 58 people and hundreds more got wounded, is considered to be the deadliest mass shooting in the American history.
The first reports given from the police stated that the shooter stopped his attack when he saw the security guard outside his door, where he got shot. But, the investigators are stating that the security guard got wounded around 6 minutes before the shooting started.
Los Angeles Times reported: “How long did it take Las Vegas police officers to storm into the room at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino where gunman Stephen Paddock was laying down fire on a crowd of 22,000 helpless concertgoers below? Initial reports suggested it was 72 minutes. Actually, it was 75 minutes, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Wednesday, as authorities released their first complete timeline of the Sunday night shooting that left 58 people dead and nearly 500 injured.”
Despite the suspicions about how things evolved that night, Las Vegas Assistant Sheriff Todd Fasulo stated that the officers “got there as fast as they possibly could and they did what they were trained to do.”
