Sheriff Lombardo says he stands by new timeline of Las Vegas shooting

At a news conference, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said MGM Resorts International had the correct timeline of events surrounding the Oct. 1 Strip attack. The sheriff said Monday that Stephen Paddock shot Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos at 9:59 p.m., about six minutes before the gunman turned his weapons on the Route 91 Harvest festival crowd. He previously reported Campos was shot after the attack on the concert crowd. Twice this week, MGM Resorts disputed Lombardo’s revised timeline. Before ending the news conference without taking questions from reporters, the agitated sheriff addressed criticism of his team’s investigation surfacing online. “In the public space, the word ‘incompetence’ has been brought forward,” he said. “And I am absolutely offended with that characterization.”
