The pain is still sharp for many over the Las Vegas shooting. Although time has passed, we as a country are searching for answers.
Americans need to understand just what happened on October 1st. How did a lone shooter accomplish so much destruction? And have lawn enforcement uncovered anything significant yet?
News is coming in steadily, day after day, but bigger questions still linger. Now it seem a new revelation changes the sequence of events and have many people concerned over what really happened.
From Town Hall:
Law enforcement authorities on Monday made a significant change to the timeline of the Las Vegas mass shooting, saying the gunman shot a hotel security guard before he opened fire on concert-goers.
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo had previously said the guard was shot after gunman Stephen Paddock fired at the country music festival and that the guard’s arrival in the hallway of the Mandalay Bay hotel may have caused Paddock to stop firing.
It was not immediately clear why the timeline of the shooting changed a week later and what the impact could be on the investigation…
Lombardo again expressed frustration with the pace of the investigation, but not with the investigators who have yet to pinpoint the motive behind the shooter’s decision to fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel casino on a Las Vegas Strip concert crowd of 22,000 on Oct. 1.
“It’s because this individual purposely hid his actions leading up to this event, and it is difficult for us to find the answers to those actions,” Lombardo said. “We believe he decided to take the lives he did and he had a very purposeful plan that he carried out.”
Many people still question whether Stephen Paddock was alone on the night he carried out his attack. The sophistication by which he executed his plan, from installing cameras to barring doors, speaks of premeditation. And help.
But why has the account changed? Why are we now learning that the guard was shot before Paddock started his attack on the concert? Perhaps the hotel or police were covering their own mistakes. If a man shot a guard, shouldn’t have police gotten to his room sooner? Why did it take so long for Paddock to be stopped, if a guard was harmed so early on?
It makes us wonder what we aren’t being told. Who was really behind the shooting? Is there a bigger conspiracy going on that we don’t know about?
We’ll have to keep tuned.
