The police investigating the Oct. 1st, 2017 shooting in Las Vegas can’t stop contradicting themselves. But, are we really surprised? This story has stunk from the start.
Remember how we were initially told the shooter (alleged to be Paddock) stopped shooting 10 minutes into his attack? The official explanation given for why he stopped was well this now debunked little story.
Officials had previously said that gunman Stephen Paddock, 64, of Mesquite, Nev., shot Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos after Paddock had unleashed his deadly volley at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, an assault that began at 10:05 p.m. and left 58 people dead, with hundreds more injured.They had credited Campos, who was shot in the leg, with stopping the 10-minute assault on the concert crowd by turning the gunman’s attention to the hotel hallway, where Campos was checking an alert for an open door in another guest’s room.
That’s a pretty big “oops”. Here is the corrected version. Only took a week to get corrected…
But Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Monday that Paddock shot Campos before his mass shooting — at 9:59 p.m. — and they now didn’t know why Paddock stopped his attack on the crowd.
Paddock, who had placed security cameras outside his room, shot Campos through the door of his suite, which was outfitted with a camera to survey the hallway, as was a room service cart parked outside. Police said Paddock fired 200 rounds into the hallway.
Those floating the idea that what happened in Vegas was a weapons deals gone bad likely find some support with this new revelation. Although, that is not what I happen to personally think actually happened.
But, one thing we know for certain – the police can’t keep their story straight.
