New evidence raises questions about timeline of Las Vegas shootings

Hotel questions revised timeline of Las Vegas massacre Las Vegas Shooting Eyewitness Tells Story of Horrific Night

Police then said that after Paddock shot at Campos through the door, he didn't fire any more shots into the crowd.

The revised timeline has renewed questions about whether better communication might have allowed police to respond more quickly and take out the gunman before he committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

"As soon as I started to go to a door to my left the rounds started coming down the hallway", Schuck said.

As he tried to take cover, bullets began flying in the hallway, whizzing right past his head.

The Nashville-based Musicians On Call, which organizes musical performances for hospital patients, said they came to Sin City to offer emotional support and healing through music.

Lombardo on Monday said Paddock shot a hotel security guard Jesus Campos, who was checking on an open-door fire alarm on the same floor, six minutes before beginning to fire on the crowd. Schuck says he used his radio to alert hotel dispatchers that someone was firing a rifle in the hallway.

In a timeline released last week, investigators said that the shooting lasted for about nine to 11 minutes.

The company that owns Mandalay Bay has questioned the new timeline.

MGM, the owner of Mandalay Bay, issued a statement after this report surfaced saying they "cannot be certain about the most recent timeline that has been communicated publicly, and we believe what is now being expressed may not be accurate". "We believe what is now being expressed may not be accurate".

The Justice Department said in a statement Wednesday it would give Nevada $1 million "to assist with the immediate costs of responding to the mass shooting in Las Vegas".

"Our officers got there as fast as they possibly could and they did what they were trained to do", Las Vegas assistant sheriff Todd Fasulo said earlier Tuesday.

MGM did not elaborate on what part of the police timeline was inaccurate and did not respond to questions regarding what it was disputing, what happened inside the hotel and whether hotel security officials are required to immediately call the police upon reports of gunshots.

When gunfire is confirmed at a casino or a room, hotel security's next move is to summon police as quickly as possible, said David Shepherd, former head of security at the Venetian Resort Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas.

Paddock had killed himself by the time police arrived at the room. Her lawyer said she had no inkling of Paddock's plans.

"We're letting people know exactly what we know at the time we know it", he said.

The lawyers held a news conference Wednesday alongside families of victims in the October 1 shooting that killed 58 concert-goers and wounded hundreds more.

The six minutes that passed between the hallway shooting and the start of the shooting into the crowd wouldn't have been enough time for officers to stop the attack, said Ron Hosko, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation assistant director who has worked on SWAT teams.

"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.

"As the maintenance man as well is arriving in the hallway, they have some communication and they are just riddled with hundreds of bullets at this particular point", McMahill said.

They also are perplexed about how Paddock was able to bring more than 20 rifles into his room without being detected.
