Sheriff: Vegas shooter fired over 1,100 rounds at concert venue below

The Vegas sheriff also said police still “have not determined Paddock’s motive or why he stopped shooting”

(National SentinelMass Shooting: Las Vegas Sheriff Joe Lombardo said that mass murderer Stephen Paddock fired more than 1,100 rounds from his Mandalay Bay hotel room on the 32nd floor at a country music festival below.

What’s more, Lombardo said that police discovered an additional 4,000 rounds of ammunition in his room.

According to the Associated Press, Lombardo’s office is working with the FBI in analyzing ballistic data related to the attack, in which Paddock killed 58 and wounded more than 500 people.

The Vegas sheriff also said police still “have not determined Paddock’s motive or why he stopped shooting,” which is baffling to many Americans because in previous and subsequent shootings, much is learned about the shooters within hours and days of the crime.

What’s also confusing to many is the changing timeline of events, as Breitbart News reports:

At first, reporters at law enforcement press conferences were told that the gunman shot Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos after the attack on concert-goers was already underway. Then the timeline shifted and reporters were told that Campos was actually shot by Paddock six minutes before the attack began.

They were told that another hotel employee, Stephen Schuck, said shots were fired at him in the hallway right after Campos was shot and CBS News reported that Schuck immediately radioed “hotel dispatchers to call police,” telling the  dispatcher, “a gunman had opened fire with a rifle inside” the hotel.

MGM Resorts International, the group which owns Mandalay Bay, immediately questioned the new timeline. On October 11 the AP quoted MGM Resorts spokeswoman Debra DeShong saying, “We cannot be certain about the most recent timeline. We believe what is currently being expressed may not be accurate.”

Eventually, October 20, CNN reported that Lombardo changed the timeline back to what had originally been announced: “Paddock shot a hotel security guard around the time he began firing on the crowd, not six minutes earlier.”

Interestingly, closed-circuit TV monitoring from the incident has not been released, so the public has no way of knowing which timeline is accurate, Breitbart reported.
