1000 leads later, authorities still stumped by Vegas gunman

He was shot in the leg through the door of Paddock's room at 9:59 pm and six minutes later, at 10:05 pm, Paddock started firing into the crowd of concertgoers.

As previously reported, the hotel sent its own armed security team to the 32nd floor after the shooting rampage had ended, with that contingent arriving around the same time as the Las Vegas Police, who were on the floor around 10:17 p.m., two minutes after Paddock had stopped shooting; Paddock was found dead of a self-inflicted gunshot wound when a SWAT team breached the door of his hotel room almost an hour later. "It was kind of relentless".

"He yelled at me to take cover, and as soon as I started to go to a door to my left, the rounds started coming down the hallway", Shuck said.

The injured guard used his radio and possibly a hallway phone to also call hotel dispatchers for help. "We can not be certain about the most recent timeline that has been communicated publicly, and we believe what is now being expressed may not be accurate".

Lombardo said on Monday that law enforcement is also talking to Marilou Danley, the shooter's girlfriend. "We believe what is now being expressed may not be accurate".

The FBI and Las Vegas police have sorted through more than a thousand leads and examined Stephen Paddock's politics, finances and social behavior.

Police have said that when Campos radioed what happened, it helped them track where Paddock was holed up.

It was unclear if the hotel relayed the information to Las Vegas police, who did not respond to questions from The Associated Press about whether hotel security or anyone else in the hotel called 911 to report the gunfire.

"There absolutely was an opportunity in that timeframe that some of this could've been mitigated", he said.

Just last Friday, McMahill hailed the guard, Jesus Campos, as a hero for interrupting the shooter several minutes into the attack, saying the guard was a "brave and remarkable man".

A few minutes later, Paddock began a 10-minute killing spree.

Campos's co-worker Liliana Rodriguez started a GoFundMe account for him on October 3, explaining that he'd been shot while on "random patrol" and it could have been "anyone of us". Rather than rush in without a game plan, police would have been formulating the best response to the barricaded gunman, he said.

"As I have conveyed to you from the very beginning - and your zest for information and my zest to ensure the public's safety, and the calming of their minds - is some things are going to change", the sheriff said.

"Maybe that's enough time to get the first patrolman onto the floor but the first patrolman is not going to go knock on that customer's door and say 'What's going on with 200 holes in the door?"' Hosko said.

Paddock's life has remained somewhat of a mystery and most people who have interacted with him said nothing really stood out about him.

Authorities say they have a clear picture of the tragic events that unfolded outside, but they're still trying to figure out what exactly happened inside Mandalay Bay Hotel and Casino.

"Now, there's only two impacts on those", said Assistant Sheriff Roberts. He added: "I don't think the hotel dropped the ball".
