The tragic shooting in Las Vegas that claimed 59 lives is still a mystery. Authorities don’t yet have a motive for Stephen Paddock’s decision to open fire on a crowd of thousands of people. But a startling new development has been revealed: Las Vegas police say the real timeline had a 6-minute gap between when Paddock first opened fire and when he started shooting at the crowd.
Why are we just now finding this out?
Tl;dr … we don’t know. This new information only invites more questions. It was believed that Paddock stopped shooting because a hotel security guard was outside his door, but the updated timeline says the guard was shot at before the gunman started firing on the crowd.
Originally, police said Paddock checked in to the Mandalay Bay hotel on Sept. 28, three days before the shooting. Now they’re saying he had been in the hotel since Sept. 25.
If police want the American people to trust them, they need to stop changing the story.
“What is happening with this investigation?” he asked the question on everyone’s mind. “They better figure it out quickly.”
