The new details suggest that the Las Vegas gunman had shot and wounded a hotel security guard, Jesus Campos, before he opened fire at the Route 91 Harvest Festival visitors, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said at a news conference on Monday. Earlier it was reported that Jesus Campos had come to Paddock's room amid the shooting, thus stopping his deadly gunfire.
Police then said that after Paddock shot at Campos through the door, he didn't fire any more shots into the crowd.
In a timeline released last week, investigators said that the shooting lasted for about nine to 11 minutes. Paddock's final shots were fired at 10:15 pm. The first police officers arrived on the hotel floor at 10:17 pm. and saw the wounded Campos at 10:18 pm, who directed the officers to the killer's suite.
By the time the police entered the room, Paddock was dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
Sheriff Lombardo said that it is still unknown what made him stop the shooting, which left 58 people dead and over 500 wounded. He added that there is no indication anyone other than Paddock fired on the people.
