Murky Timeline is a Focus of Las Vegas Shooting Probe

The Mandalay Bay security guard who first encountered the Route 91 shooter will be on the Ellen Degeneres show today.

Lombardo and MGM Resorts, which claims Mandalay Bay, now concur that Campos was shot at about a similar time Paddock began shooting at the music celebration. I felt the burning sensation. "I went to go lift my pant leg up, and I saw the blood", Campos said. "That's when I called it in on my radio that shots have been fired".

He didn't say what time that was. But before the shots started, he heard what he thought was a drilling sound near Paddock's room and called security, which sent maintenance worker Stephen Schuck to the floor to investigate.

At that point Campos said he heard what seemed like penetrating, which DeGeneres cleared up was the sound of gunfire.

"At the time, I thought it was a jackhammer", Shuck said, though he knew that didn't make sense. "And, you know as an engineer, I'm like, 'We're not working up here this late at night.' We wouldn't be doing that". "It wasn't in the hallway yet".

A photo posted by DeGeneres showed Campos on the television show's set holding a cane. "Within milliseconds, if he didn't say that I would have got hit".

Jesus and Stephen said they are still trying to mentally heal after the shooting.

Schuck, the building engineer, said he had just rounded the corner when he noticed Campos and started to hear the gunfire. Schuck wasn't injured. Both are on paid leave from their jobs, according to officials at MGM Resorts International, which owns the hotel.

Police have declined to comment on MGM's statement. Paddock had amassed 47 guns, many just a year before the shooting, but police have not yet determined a motive.

That stuff doesn't interest me and I don't even know if I could write that if I tried because I don't really feel it. Downie, who served as the band's lyricist, released five studio albums, his most recent arriving in October 2016.

The mystery is over: Las Vegas security guard Jesus Campos has been found.

DeGeneres presented Schuck with tickets to meet and watch his favorite team, the Indianapolis Colts.

Campos' quick thinking also saved the life of a woman who almost walked into the gunfire when she came out of her room into the hallway. Campos said that as he walked away, one of the two stairwell doors slammed behind him, likely catching the shooter's attention. "Clearly, somebody knows where he is", David Hickey, president of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America union, told the Los Angeles Times, after telling Newsweek days earlier that he was set to speak with Campos and that he deserved the Presidential Medal of Honor.

Campos then dropped from public view, said Hickey, who had been involved in booking the appearance.

Considered as the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, the attacker fired at least 3 different rounds, but it is unknown if the pauses he took were to load the same rifle with more ammunition or to change his weapon. "If not, we wish him the best".

With DeGeneres' delicate goading, Campos recounted the tale of the evening of October 1, when he was dispatched to the 32nd story of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino to mind a ready that a stairwell entryway was open.

Paddock shot through the door, striking Campos in the upper right thigh. The show airs on Wednesday.

More than two weeks after the Las Vegas massacre, where 58 people were killed and 500 wounded, the security guard who arrived at the shooter Stephen Paddock's hotel room prior to the Las Vegas massacre made an appearance at The Ellen DeGeneres Show to do, for the first time, a recount of what happened that night.
