I have been seriously concerned about the timeline of events from Mandalay Bay, and more importantly the possibility that Mandalay Bay and MGM tried to hide the shooting from the start. After a city employee mentioned that it was “Standard Operating Procedure” for MGM to try to hide as much as possible, we started to push heavily for the local and national press to ask questions.
According to AP and ABCNews, Mandalay Bay Security did not call 9-11 after their security guard was shot for some reason – and because of that, the police did not even know about the shooter until he started massacring people.
“Mandalay Bay staff did not call Las Vegas police until mass shooter Stephen Paddock had already begun firing on concertgoers, a source who has reviewed the records told ABC News Wednesday.
That means the hotel did not call police when security guard Jesus Campos first reported that someone was shooting on the 32nd floor, or when building engineer Stephen Schuck also internally reported someone was firing at him on the same floor.”
This raises a lot more questions about what was going on, why MGM has been less than honest about the timeline of events and what else they are hiding.
