Las Vegas police explain why they didn’t take on mass killer Stephen Paddock sooner – but questions remain

Las Vegas cops didn’t find Stephen Paddock’s room until he’d already ended his mass shooting – even though a security guard was waiting outside injured.

Police are facing difficult questions about why it took at least 25 minutes to locate the killer, and then another 45 minutes before to storm his hotel suite.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo made the bombshell admission on Monday that security officer Jesus Campos was in fact Paddock’s first victim.

Previously, police had said he was the hero who disturbed the killer around 15 minutes after the shooting began and brought it to an end.

But now it’s emerged that the chaos at the Mandalay Bay began when Mr Campos went to investigate a stairwell door which was adjacent to Paddock’s hotel room.

Vegas mass killer shot a security guard minutes before carnage began

The gunman in the Las Vegas massacre first shot a hotel security officer about six minutes before opening fire on an outdoor concert, a new revelation in the timeline of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.

Jesus Campos, who was injured in the leg during the shooting, investigated “sounds of drilling” coming from the 32nd-floor room of the Mandalay Bay resort where killer Stephen Paddock was staying, authorities said at a late-afternoon press briefing.

Paddock, who had an arsenal of rifles and ammunition in his room, was drilling holes through a wall in preparation for his well-planned attack, which included not only firing bullets at the concert-goers below, but also the planting of at least 50 pounds of explosives in his car.

Moments later, Campos was shot in the leg by Paddock, an injury he would survive. The time of the shooting was 9:59 p.m. Las Vegas time — about six minutes before

Las Vegas mass killer Stephen Paddock took Valium, sometimes wagered up to $1 million a night: CNN

Las Vegas mass killer Stephen Paddock was a compulsive player of video poker who took the anxiety drug Valium, CNN reported on Monday.

The report gave new details about the background of the 64-year-old who, on Oct. 1, gunned down 58 people and wounded almost 500 for reasons that investigators still have not been able to fathom.

Paddock said in a 2013 court deposition that he was “the biggest video poker player in the world,” according to CNN, which obtained a copy of the 97-page document.

The deposition has been turned over to the FBI, the news network said.

It was part of a civil lawsuit against the Cosmopolitan Hotel, where he slipped and fell on a walkway in 2011.

“Nobody played as much and as long as I did,” Paddock said, adding that in 2006 he gambled on average “14 hours a day, 365 days a year.”

“I’ll gamble all

Brother of Las Vegas mass killer helping investigators in search for motive

The brother of a man who killed dozens of people at a Las Vegas country music festival has arrived in Nevada to help investigators work out the gunman’s motives and to retrieve the body.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Eric Paddock arrived in town late on Saturday for hours of interviews with FBI agents, a police detective, a profiler and a psychologist.

Stephen Paddock opened fire on October 1 from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay casino-hotel, killing 58 people and wounding hundreds.

Authorities so far have struggled to find a motive.

Eric Paddock of Florida said he wants to help investigators get into his brother’s mindset.

He also told the newspaper that he will retrieve his brother’s body and have it cremated.

‘Puzzling’ discoveries fuel theories Las Vegas mass killer Stephen Paddock wasn’t alone in Mandalay Bay hotel room

Detectives probing the Las Vegas gun massacre have made two puzzling discoveries which suggest that the killer may not have been alone in his hotel suite.

Police have said they are “very confident” killer Stephen Paddock did not have an accomplice during the deadliest shooting in US history.

But they were said to be troubled by two mysteries involving a mobile found charger and a hotel key card.

One concerned a phone charger which initially did not appear to belong to the 64-year-old gunman.

However, NBC News which first reported the claim, later clarified that all phones and charges had been ‘accounted for’.

There were also suggestions that the hotel’s records show one of Paddock’s key cards was used to enter his suite, after his car had left the garage.

But when asked about the rumoured discrepancy, Las Vegas Undersheriff Kevin McMahill said he had not heard anything about it.
