Originally cops said that Stephen Paddock’s rampage was disturbed by a guard
Paddock fired through the door of his room, injuring guard Jesus Campos
But on Monday cops changed their story, saying Campos was fired on first
Campos was injured six minutes before Paddock’s 10-minute shooting spree
Cops had used Campos’s interruption to explain why cops weren’t delayed
Cops came just after he was hit, by which time Paddock was silent, they said
Now there’s a 16-minute gap between Campos being hit and Paddock stopping
And it was 20 minutes passed from Campos reporting he was hit to cops arriving
Campos wasn’t investigating gunshots, but instead an ‘open-door’ alarm
The door wasn’t specified, but was likely the stairwell next to Paddock’s room
Paddock had tampered with it to seal it up before the shooting, SWAT team said
Police are once more baffled why Paddock stopped firing on the crowd

Stephen Paddock fired on a security guard before, not after, he committed mass murder, police said – a revision to the official police timeline that raises huge questions about the Las Vegas killings.

Previously, police said hero guard Jesus Campos had distracted Paddock from his rampage – being hit in the process – just a minute before police arrived.

Now it’s been confirmed that Campos was shot six minutes before Paddock began firing on crowds.

That raises questions about what the killer had been planning before Campos disturbed him, and why police did not arrive sooner.

Speaking on Monday, Las Vegas Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said that Jesus Campos had approached the room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel not because of gunfire, but because of an open-door alarm that had gone off nearby.

Paddock then apparently saw him on the video cameras he’d rigged up in the hall and opened fire on him. That occurred at 9:59pm. Lombardo said last week that Paddock fired more than 200 rounds in that encounter.

Campos ‘immediately, upon being injured, notified security of his situation,’ Lombardo said.

Paddock then turned his gun on the 22,000 revelers at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival five minutes later, per the original timeline of 10:05pm, Lombardo said.

That contradicts what had been said last Wednesday by Lombardo, who claimed that Campos had approached Paddock while he was firing at around 10:15pm.

Paddock turned his gun on Campos, before stopping firing altogether, he said.

Police arrived just minutes later to a silent hallway, Lombardo claimed – at which point they assumed Paddock was barricaded in and no longer a threat to revelers.

With the hall silent, they – and Campos, who was injured but wanted to help – were free to evacuate the rest of the rooms leading up to Paddock, he said.

That was used as an excuse by Lombardo to explain the delayed response – arguing that even if Campos had not been there, other officers would have disrupted the massacre themselves.

But in the new timeline that excuse no longer works; Campos lay wounded for six minutes before Paddock started firing, police now say.
