Las Vegas Gunman Shot Security Guard Before Main Attack

Las Vegas shooting

A few minutes later Paddock began a 10-minute killing spree that killed 58 people in the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history, Lombardo said.

On Monday, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo announced a change to the sequence of events that occurred on October 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.

Paddock killed 58 people and injured hundreds of others as he opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay Hotel on country music fans at the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Lombardo also confirmed that investigators are talking with Paddock's brother, Eric Paddock, who travelled to Las Vegas; and continue to speak with the shooter's girlfriend, Marilou Danley, to get insight.

At 10:05 p.m., the Las Vegas Strip's bright lights dimmed for about 10 minutes to mark the passing of exactly a week since a gunman opened fire, killing 58 people and wounding nearly 500 at a 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.

The sheriff said the wounded 25-year-old security guard, who was hit in the leg, "immediately upon being injured notified security of the situation". He reminded surprised journalists he had cautioned them that, in their "zest for" quick facts, some facts could change as the investigation progressed.

Police first knew about Campos when they arrived on the 32 floor at 10:17 p.m. and met him in the corridor.

After making more progress in the investigation, police in Las Vegas have now changed the time of events around the October 1 shooting. Investigators believe Paddock saw Campos on his security camera system.

The sound echoed in his window, he said.

"I sleep during the day", he said.

The open door was not in Paddock's hotel room, he said.

It has now been reported that Paddock had attended a court deposition in 2013, where he had said that he was "the biggest video poker player in the world", according to CNN. Seven minutes later, officers breached a second door in the room.

Police still have not determined Paddock's motive in the attack.

Federal investigators returned to search the home of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock on Sunday to recheck items. "That is our most important goal to prevent any further action associated with other individuals contemplating this or what exactly in the suspect's mind would enable him to pull off such a complicated event", Lombardo said during Monday's press conference.

"We have uncovered over 200 instances of the suspects' traveling throughout Las Vegas and he has never been seen with anyone else", Lombardo said. While Paddock claimed during his testimony that he had no history of mental illness, criminal convictions or history of addiction, he was reportedly prescribed Valium "for anxiousness".
