Revealed: Las Vegas gunman fired on security guard before mass shooting

Written by  Reuters

(Reuters) - The Las Vegas gunman opened fire on a security guard six minutes before he rained down bullets on a crowd and killed 58 people, officials said on Monday in a change to the timeline of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S.


The shooter, Stephen Paddock, 64, was seen on numerous occasions in Las Vegas without any person accompanying him and he gambled the night before the shooting, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said at a news conference. He killed himself after the attack.

“This individual purposely hid his actions leading up to this event, and it is difficult for us to find the answers,” said Lombardo, who said he was frustrated with the speed of the investigation.

Paddock sprayed an outdoor concert with bursts of gunfire from high above in a Las Vegas hotel window on Oct. 1, killing 58 and wounding hundreds more, before shooting himself.

“In coordination with the FBI’s behavioral analysis unit, a comprehensive picture is being drawn as to the suspect’s mental state and currently we do not believe there is one particular event in the suspect’s life for us to key on,” Lombardo said.

There is no indication anyone other than Paddock fired on the crowd, Lombardo said, adding investigators are talking to family members and the girlfriend of the gunman.

Everyday there will be something new coming out about this for a while to come - we can only hope that the truth will eventually make its way to the public. Has anyone heard anything yet as to how many of the 19 guns (or however many they are saying now) he had in the room where fired? They originally said that police were alerted to his room by smoke detectors going off -due to the smoke from the gunfire - but if he/or someone else shot the guard first - i would think the guard alerted them to the room either before or after he was shot. How in the hell did this guy think he would do all of this - then pick up his guns and just walk out? I have heard the stories that he was planning something else at another hotel - but all I heard that was found in his trunk was ammo and explosives - if this was so well planned out how come he never used the explosives? Someone told me at the beginning this was a gun deal gone bad - that would explain all of different guns he had in the room - If he planned this out so well and calculated it would seem likely he would be using the same ammo and weapon for speed - it doesn't seem seem likely be jumping from gun to gun - looking for different magazines and clips

The brother is way too involved in the investigation and all too willing to downplay his killer brother who he obviously didn't know as well as he's claiming.

All family members and the sheriff department are under control of the FBI. Their public releases are either statements presented to them by the FBI or approved by the FBI. If they deviate from FBI instructions, they will be charged with federal law violation. Of course the FBI violates the constitution, which is a continuation of the NAZI procedures that were carried over into the CIA "secrecy code" when legalized by the 1947 "National Security Act". The fact that the alias, Barrack Hussein Obama was a 2-term occupant of the POTUS slot, yet, no verifiable birth certificate, evidence of American citizenship nor name at birth have been publicized, requires consideration. His appointments to the FBI and the subterfuge of former directer James Comey suggest that the FBI still contains too many "rotten apples".

If you believe one word of this tripe you're a fool! Videos prove that there were two to three separate gunman because the firing was coming from different locations/distances. This claim of him shooting at a security guard also ignores that several witnesses claimed that he was GAMBLING before the shooting started. How is it exactly that it took this long for them to find out about the security guard?

We are a nation of fools - we have allowed government to infringe on our rights, to create MANY false flag situations to satisfy their political agendas, and to put non-citizens into political office and refuse to investigate and prove their validity!

While reviewing a video produced by an attendee of the massacre, it was obvious to me that two or more, separate "gun reports" were documented in the video, which comment I blogged. Yesterday, the separate "gun reports" were verified by Mike Adams, of Natural News. https //www naturalnews com/2017-10-08-bombshell-health-ranger-identifies-distance-of-second-shooter-at-las-vegas-massacre-not-mandalay-bay.html
The video also displayed bursts of fire from gun-blasts from what appeared to me to be the 4th floor. The semi-automatic "gun reports" are clearly distinguishable from the much heavier report of the single shot weapon that was fired separately. That the sheriff stated yesterday that more than one shooter was involved is interesting.
