Worker reported hallway shooting at Vegas hotel

The Las Vegas Strip dimmed its lights Sunday night for 11 minutes as the city honored the victims of last week's mass shooting, the largest in modern US history. We can not be certain about the most recent timeline that has been communicated publically, and we believe what is now being expressed may not be accurate.

She didn't elaborate, but the statement comes a day after Last Vegas police revised their chronology of events for the night of October 1, when gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel and killed 58 people.

Mandalay Bay staff did not call Las Vegas police until after Stephen Paddock had already begun firing on the concertgoers, according to "World News Tonight" on ABC. "We believe what is now being expressed may not be accurate".

I'm writing this letter at 9 p.m. on the day of the mass shooting in Las Vegas.

"Our officers got there as fast as they possibly could and they did what they were trained to do", Las Vegas assistant sheriff Todd Fasulo said earlier Tuesday. Nor did they call police when building engineer Stephen Schuck also reported internally that someone was firing at him on the 32nd floor.

Lawyers who filed a lawsuit over the response to the Las Vegas massacre question why police and hotel and concert security officers didn't act more quickly to stop the gunman.

Joseph Giacalone, a professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice and a retired New York City police sergeant, said the new timeline "changes everything".

In a timeline released last week, investigators said that the shooting lasted for about nine to 11 minutes.

"It's very confusing to me that they are just discovering this a week later", she said. Why has it been nearly 24 hours after the event and we don't know of any motives?

"This individual purposely hid his actions leading up to this event, and it is hard for us to find the answers", said Lombardo, who said he was frustrated with the speed of the investigation. Paddock fired more than 1,000 bullets and had more than 1,000 rounds left in his room, the undersheriff said.

It was unclear why Paddock stopped firing at the crowd, suggesting he may have initially planned to escape, Lombardo said.

"I can tell you I'm confident that he was not able to fully execute his heinous plan and it certainly had everything to do with being disrupted", McMahill said.
