Behavior Of Las Vegas Shooter Stephen Paddock Detailed In 2013 Testimony

Paddock mandalay bay hotel room

In another development, the sheriff of Las Vegas Joseph Lombardo told reporters Monday that a security guard who was injured by Paddock was in fact shot six minutes before the gunman opened fire on the crowd.

Paddock sprayed an outdoor concert with bursts of gunfire from high above in a Las Vegas hotel window on October 1, killing 58 and wounding hundreds more, before shooting himself.

At the news conference Monday, Lombardo said Campos, after he was shot on October 1, "immediately" told security what happened.

During a press conference held on Monday evening, Lombardo said investigators have not been able to hone in on any one particular event that might have caused Paddock to open fire on the crowd.

Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock reportedly gambled all night and slept during the day.

"The timeline associated with the original shot with Mr. Campos has changed through investigation", Lombardo said.

Reports of the attack timeline previously cited the shooting of the security guard as the factor distracting the shooter from the crowd below and stopping the attack.

Authorities said last week that security guard Jesus Campos had approached Paddock's room as the shooting was underway, diverting the gunman's attention.

Authorities have checked out more than 200 instances of the deceased gunman's activities throughout the Vegas area and found "no evidence to show a second shooter", Lombardo said. "So he had had that written down and figured out so he would know where to shoot to hit his targets from there".

Unlike many other mass killers who have unleashed bloodshed in America's churches, colleges, nightclubs, workplaces, college towns, or public spaces, Paddock left no clear sign that authorities have identified so far.

Paddock said in a 2013 court deposition that he was "the biggest video poker player in the world", according to CNN, which obtained a copy of the 97-page document. "He tried to make people care, and I don't know what happened to him".

Law enforcement officials briefed on the investigation confirmed to ABC News Sunday that the note found on Paddock's hexagon-shaped nightstand contained such numerical figures.

"This individual purposely hid his actions leading up to this event", Sheriff Lombardo said.

The sheriff said, "We believe he chose to take the lives he did and he had a very purposeful plan he carried out". The FBI, Red Cross, and city and county officials are doing an "amazing job" on that front, Lombardo complimented, calling it "not an easy task to undertake".

"This week we witnessed one of the worst tragedies in American history", Aldean said before starting the song.

Eric Paddock said that when Stephen Paddock's body is released, he wants to have his remains cremated and sent to their 89-year-old mother, who also lives in Orange County.
