‘Missing’ Las Vegas security guard turns up and starts talking
He gives his first public interview to Ellen DeGeneres
By Derek Hawkins, The Washington Post
October 18, 2017
The Mandalay Bay security guard who was described as “missing” in recent news reports has turned up on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where he taped his first public account of being wounded as he responded to Stephen Paddock’s deadly shooting rampage in Las Vegas.
In a segment set for broadcast on Wednesday, Jesus Campos described how he was called to check on an open hallway door near Paddock’s suite on the 32nd floor of the hotel and casino, and how he was struck by gunfire moments before the shooter unleashed a fusillade of bullets on a crowd of concertgoers below.
“As I was walking down, I heard rapid fire, and at first I took cover,” Campos said. “I felt a burning sensation. I went to go lift my pant leg up and I saw the blood. That’s when I called it in on my radio that shots have been fired.”
Excerpts from the show were first published by the Las Vegas Journal-Review.
Campos has been the subject of intrigue in the weeks since he was revealed as the first person to confront Paddock and report the shooting, in which 58 people were killed and more than 500 injured. Contradictory statements from police and hotel officials about when he arrived at the gunman’s room raised questions about the speed of the response from law enforcement and stoked conspiracy theories about the attack.
Police initially said Campos was shot at 9:59 p.m., several minutes before Paddock started firing from the windows of his suite. They changed the timeline following pushback from Mandalay Bay’s owners, saying Campos had arrived on the floor at 9:59 p.m. but wasn’t shot until about 10:05 p.m., about the time the mass shooting began. The first law enforcement officers arrived at 10:17 p.m., according to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo.
Campos drew more attention last week when, without explanation, he skipped out on television interviews with Fox News and four other outlets, and fell out of contact with the Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America union, which was helping him coordinate the appearances.
Various news reports then referred to him as “missing” and “vanished,” creating an air of mystery around a crucial witness to the deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history. He did not explain why he chose the DeGeneres show to tell his long-awaited story as opposed to all the other shows vying for the first interview.
In his interview, Campos appeared nervous as he recounted the sequence of events that led him to Paddock’s room. He appeared with Stephen Schuck, a building engineer who was on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay with him during the shooting. Campos spoke softly, avoided looking at the studio audience, and leaned forward in his seat as Schuck patted him on the back during some of his responses.
Clad in a gray suit and tie, Campos recounted how he was on the 31st floor when he got a radio call to inspect a hallway door that had been left ajar near Paddock’s room on the 32nd floor and arrived to find it jammed with brackets.
Eventually he got onto the shooter’s floor using a different route, he said. Schuck was sent to meet him to inspect the problem.
Around that time, Campos heard what he “assumed were drilling sounds.” As he walked down the hallway, he said, he seemed to catch the attention of Paddock, who had installed cameras outside his suite to see anyone coming.
That’s when the gunfire started, Campos said. He told DeGeneres he believed Paddock was firing at him from behind his door. “I don’t know how he was shooting but he shot out,” he said.
Schuck, the building engineer, said he had just rounded the corner when he noticed Campos and started to hear the gunfire. At first he thought it was a jackhammer, he said, but knew that crews wouldn’t be working that late at night.
Campos “leaned out and he said, ‘Take cover! Take cover!’ and yelled at me,” Schuck recalled. “Within milliseconds, if he didn’t say that I would have got hit.”
Schuck described how the two of them were pinned there in the hallway as Paddock fired, saying he could “feel the pressure” of bullets flying past his head.
DeGeneres praised Campos as a “hero” and suggested his appearance on her show would be the only time would talk about the attack in public.
“You being shot in the leg saved so many people’s lives,” she said. “We just wanted to celebrate you.”

Three Eyewitness Accounts Which Challenge Las Vegas Timeline

Among the numerous eyewitness accounts shared since the Las Vegas massacre, many do not fit the official timeline, and some even present conflicting reports of multiple shooters, before, during and after the attack
VERO BEACH, FL (TruNews) The following three eyewitness testimonies have been recorded and shared by both local reporters and independent journalists, but little is known about the extent of inquiry the FBI and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) have taken to investigate these claims.
The first is an account by a Las Vegas resident named Stephanie, and was recorded this past Sunday by independent journalists Jason Goodman and Laura Loomer.
Stephanie was inside the concert area when the massacre began, and claims she heard a single shot go out before the main volley of gunfire and that she saw the women who was hit by that round.
If a single shot was fired by the lead suspect, Steven Paddock, prior to the audible beginning of what appeared to be near-automatic gunfire on the crowd, this may alter the official timeline for when the shooting began, which is currently being reported as 10:05 p.m. by officials.
Also, pending the release of ballistic findings by the FBI, this may indicate a different weapon was used to begin the onslaught by either Paddock or a separate gunman
The second account is from a Canadian man named Jeff, and was recorded on Sunday, October 8th by the producers of a podcast called “The Confessionals."
Jeff was in Las Vegas with his wife on the night of the shooting and recounted hearing gunshots after 11:10 p.m. while inside the Bellagio Conservatory & Botanical Gardens.
If gunshots were fired near the Bellagio hotel after 11:10 p.m., this would indicate that another lone gunman, or a separate squad of assailants, were operating in tandem, or separately, with Steven Paddock’s attack.
If the time of the alleged attack is correct, this alters the official timeline of events for October 1st because the shooting would have occurred 55 minutes after authorities report Steven Paddock stopped shooting from his 32nd floor Mandalay Bay hotel room.
The last account is from a Springfield, Colorado resident named Brianna Hendricks, and was recorded at 12:30 a.m. on Monday October 2nd.
Ms. Hendricks had traveled to Las Vegas with her mother to celebrate her 21st birthday and recounted hearing a hispanic women warn the concert crowd that everyone was going to die approximately 45 minutes before shooting.
Since her statements that night, Ms. Hendricks has 
walked back her assertion that the women was threatening the whole crowd, and now instead contents that the unknown hispanic women was directing her threat at a single women in the crowd.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, Damon Zumwalt, the CEO of the company, Contemporary Services Corporation (CSC),  which was in charge of security for the Route 19 Harvest concert , claimed the initials reports surrounding this account were false.
Neither have contended however that it is false that the women yelled, “you’re going to die,” amid a crowd which would 45 minutes later become the victims to the largest mass shooting in U.S. History.
Ms. Hendricks and her mother also still maintain that the episode prompted their earlier departure from the concert, approximately 10-15 minutes before the mass shooting began.
Ultimately all these accounts should be easy to validate by the countless hours of high definition footage recorded that night by the tens of thousands of cameras installed along the Las Vegas strip.
This invaluable footage has since been undoubtably gathered and catalogued by the DHS threat fusion center operating at the center of the Las Vegas, the Southern Nevada Counter Terrorism Center (SNCTC), and should be made available to the public if investigators lack the man power, or will, to properly review it.

Las Vegas shooting witness hid in a freezer
By Lindsey Ellefson, CNN
Mon October 2, 2017
(CNN) Bryan Hopkins hid in a freezer with dozens of others while the deadliest mass shooting in US history unfolded in Las Vegas late Sunday night. On Monday morning, he described his experience on CNN's "Newsroom."
Hopkins, a musical artist who had been at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, said the gunfire, which was later revealed to be coming from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel, was "constant."
"Then it would stop for, I don't know, a few seconds, and then it would start again," he told anchors John Berman and Poppy Harlow.
Hopkins said he attempted to lead a group to a fence that he recalled seeing. "We see an ice chest -- it's a trailer -- and we open up the doors and just start helping people up inside this trailer, which happened to be a freezer," he said. "There must have been, I don't know, 23 to 30 of us inside this freezer."
Hopkins said that some in the freezer worked to calm down the others while he opened the door and discovered the gunfire was still raining down on the festival.
"I turned to a couple of the guys that are in there behind me and said, 'We gotta leave. If there's people running around with guns, they're gonna find us.'" he said. Hopkins described waiting until the sound of gunfire subsided and then rushing to help people get over the fence.
"The thing I'll always remember is a police officer who ran towards me and said, 'This way,' pointed to where to run, and then ran towards the gunfire," Hopkins said.
More than 50 people were killed in the shooting, which happened during Jason Aldean's performance on the final night of the festival. The gunman, identified by police as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, is believed to have killed himself before law enforcement breached his hotel room and found a cache of weapons including 10 rifles.
