Something is wrong in Las Vegas shooting investigation
Something is wrong in the Las Vegas shooting investigation. Friday night a press conference was scheduled where security guard Jesus Campos was supposed to shed new light on the investigation. Only Campos was a no-show.
The Mandalay Bay security guard shot by Stephen Paddock in the moments leading up to the worst mass shooting in modern U.S. history was set to break his silence Thursday night with five television interviews, including one on Fox News, Campos’ union president said. Campos bolted apparently as early ass Friday morning.
“We were in a room and we came out and he was gone,” Campos’ union president told reporters, according to ABC News’ Stephanie Wash.
Campos is represented by the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America, which did not respond to requests for comment from Fox News earlier this week.
Not much is known about Campos at this time. There are a few pictures available but not much as far as an online footprint. It is not clear is he a victim or a suspect in the Las Vegas shooting investigation.
SPFPA President David L. Hickey told reporters new information about the timeline of the attack — for which Las Vegas Police and MGM Resorts have given conflicting accounts – doesn’t dispute Campos is still a hero for saving a maintenance worker and possibly stopping additional shots, Wash reported.
MGM Resorts iissued a statement Thursday to “correct some of the misinformation that has been reported.”
“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 first reported that shots were fired over the radio,” the statement said. “Metro officers were together with armed Mandalay Bay security officers in the building when Campos first reported that shots were fired over the radio. These Metro officers and armed Mandalay Bay security officers immediately responded to the 32nd floor.”
The investigation is still fluid but something is definitely not right in the Las Vegas shooting investigation.
