Hotel tries to clarify "misinformation" about Vegas timeline


LAS VEGAS — The latest police timeline of the Las Vegas massacre is being questioned again — this time by the owners of the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

For the first time, MGM Resorts International is providing specific details about how the shooting went down.

Police said that six minutes passed between the time Stephen Paddock shot at the security guard and when he fired into the concert.

But MGM’s statement says it “wanted to correct some of the misinformation being reported” and “we know that shots were being fired at the festival lot at the same time as, or within 40 seconds after the time Jesus Campos [Mandalay’s security guard] first reported that shots were fired over the radio.”

Thursday afternoon, a law enforcement source told the Associated Press the Mandalay Bay waited up to six minutes before calling police after the first shots were fired.

We still don’t know when hotel staff called police but officials are expected to hold a formal press conference Friday to provide more details about the timeline.
