Again, today, MGM Resorts International has disputed the timeline of Octobers 1st's mass shooting. In a statement released Thursday, MGM Resorts takes issue with Sheriff Joe Lombardo's timeline released 3 days ago, in which he said Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos was shot at 9:59pm, 6 minutes before Stephen Paddock opened fire on the Route 91 festival below.
“Although we prefer not to comment on the details of the investigation, we are issuing this statement to correct some of the misinformation that has been reported,” the emailed statement read.
“The 9:59 p.m. PDT time was derived from a Mandalay Bay report manually created after the fact without the benefit of information we now have. We are now confident that the time stated in this report is not accurate. We know that shots were being fired at the festival lot at the same time as, or within 40 seconds after, the time Jesus Campos first reported that shots were fired over the radio.”
According to today's MGM statement, “Metro officers were together with armed Mandalay Bay security officers in the building when Campos first reported that shots were fired over the radio. These Metro officers and armed Mandalay Bay security officers immediately responded to the 32nd floor. We will continue to work with law enforcement as we have from the first moments of this tragedy as they work toward developing an accurate timeline.”
