Las Vegas gunman shot security guard six minutes before massacre

At the news conference Monday, Lombardo said Campos, after he was shot on October 1, "immediately" told security what happened.

Campos was sent to the 32nd floor of the hotel to investigate a door alarm going off near Paddock's suite.

Paddock arrived at the Mandalay Bay on September 28, three days before the concert shooting, bringing with him 23 guns, a dozen of them equipped with "bump stocks, " which allow for more rapid fire.

Police also say that the gunman, 64, was seen on numerous occasions in Las Vegas gambling heavily by himself the night before the shooting, which ended with him killing himself.

Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg has not released Paddock's cause of death and said "extensive forensic analysis" is still continuing.

"Then immediately, upon being injured, he notified security", Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said of the hotel guard at a Monday evening briefing.

During a press briefing on Monday afternoon, Lombardo clarified that the guard, Jesus Campos, faced the shooter before the main attack on festival goers began.

Sheriff Joseph Lombardo of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said the gunman, Stephen Paddock, had wounded the security guard, Jesus Campos, around 9:59 p.m. on October 1.

Charles "Sid" Heal, a retired Los Angeles County sheriff's commander and tactical expert, said the new timeline "changes the whole perspective of the shooting".

Paddock's younger brother Eric arrived in Las Vegas Sunday to aid authorities in their investigation.

Stephen Paddock hired a hotel room above the country music concert and fired rounds of ammunition out the window at the crowds below.

"He's like on retainer, I call it, I guess", Paddock said of the doctor.

At 10:05 p.m., the shooting began that left dozens dead and hundreds injured in what is being described as the deadliest mass shooting in modern USA history.

The Las Vegas gunman, who killed concertgoers in the city last weekend leaving 59 people dead and more than 500 people wounded, had first opened fire on a security guard. While Paddock claimed during his testimony that he had no history of mental illness, criminal convictions or history of addiction, he was reportedly prescribed Valium "for anxiousness".

Investigators are now working on learning more about Paddock's frame of mind.

Americans still know very little about shooter Stephen Paddock other than that he was a wealthy real estate investor turned gambler. It is believed the shooter was drilling to place a camera or a rifle in position in the suite, the sheriff said.

"We believe he chose to take the lives he did and he had a very purposeful plan that he carried out".

"He tried to make people happy; he tried to make people care and I don't know what happened to him", the Dallas woman said as she fought to hold back her tears.
