Las Vegas investigators presented a third version of the shooting timeline this week, as confusion surrounding the deadliest shooting in modern U.S. history is fermenting into anger.
In a Friday press conference, Sheriff Joe Lombardo fought back against claims that there is a conspiracy between the FBI, between LVMPD and the MGM,” to withhold information. Lombardo blasted reports that the Las Vegas police department and the FBI were operating in an incompetent manner.
“”There is no conspiracy between the FBI, between LVMPD & MGM — & nobody is attempting to hide anything referenced [in] this investigation,” said the Sheriff.

LAS Vegas police presented a third version of the timeline of events for the Las Vegas gunman who killed 58 people and himself, saying they responded immediately to the deadliest mass shooting in modern US history.
Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo, who oversees the Las Vegas police department, told reporters that gunman Stephen Paddock shot at Mandalay Bay hotel security guard Jesus Campos outside his room about the same time he opened fire on the more than 20,000 concertgoers at an outdoor venue.
Previously, police said that Paddock shot Campos six minutes before he started firing on the crowd, raising questions as to whether police and hotel security could have acted faster to prevent casualties in the attack.
“In the public space, the word ‘incompetent’ has been brought forward,” Lombardo said. “I am absolutely offended with that characterization.”
“Nobody is attempting to hide anything. The dynamics and the size of the investigation require us to go through voluminous amounts of information in order to draw an accurate picture,” he said of the changing timeline on Friday.
As of Friday evening October 13th there was still no motive reported for the mass murder and many questions remain unanswered.
The investigation itself is developing into the second tragedy of the Las Vegas Mandalay Bay massacre.
