Major change to timeline of events in Las Vegas shooting

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said Paddock shot and wounded Jesus Campos, a security guard at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, shortly before 10 a.m. on October 1.

Campos was shot while investigating an alarm that was unrelated to Paddock's room.

Footage captured the moment that 64-year-old Stephen Paddock opened fire on a crowd at Route 91 Harvest country music festival. Authorities previously said Campos' presence may have distracted Paddock; however, it's now known Campos entered the scene prior to the shooting, not after it already started.

Last week, police said Paddock had shot at concertgoers for 10 minutes and stopped firing around 10:15 p.m.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said last week that Paddock's massive arsenal appeared to indicate he may have had an accomplice, though no such individual has been identified.

She said she found it hard to believe that he could be capable of carrying out the October 1 mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, which left 59 dead, including Paddock, and at least 480 others injured.

EPA's Pruitt Pledges To Repeal Obama's Global Warming Rule
The Clean Power Plan required states to devise a way to cut planet-warming emissions by 32% below 2005 levels by 2030. The New York Times reports that last week, an EPA document revealed that the Clean Power Plan would be repealed.

Charles "Sid" Heal, a retired Los Angeles County sheriff's commander and tactical expert, said the new timeline "changes the whole perspective of the shooting".

Mr. Paddock might have believed that the chaos caused by the shooting "would have enabled the first responders to be directing their attention in other locations, which would enable Mr. Paddock to just leave the hotel", Sheriff Lombardo said.

He had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there. He then heard drilling coming from the gunman's room, which police believe the suspect planned to use to set up a camera into the hallway. Authorities said they believe Paddock killed himself prior to police entry.

Lombardo said he thinks Paddock shot at the tanks to create a diversion.

"We believe he chose to take the lives he did and he had a very purposeful plan that he carried out", he added.

"I can tell you that this was a remarkable effort by a courageous and remarkable man", McMahill said.

Dove apologizes for controversial ad campaign amid social media backlash

"Because this individual purposefully hid his actions leading up to this event, and it is hard for us to find answers for those actions".

Americans still know very little about shooter Stephen Paddock other than that he was a wealthy real estate investor turned gambler. The sheriff added that a complete evaluation of Paddock's mental condition was not yet done.

According to Lombardo, Paddock had a document in the room with him, which contained numbers, but could not immediately say what they represented or what objective they served.

"Every piece of information we get is one more piece to the puzzle in this case", Lombardo said.

The update was made after police conducted a thorough interview with Campos, who is said to be shaken up by the incident but cooperating.
