Las Vegas shooting: Security guard who first confronted Stephen Paddock breaks his silence

The security guard who became the first person to confront the Las Vegas gunman1 has spoken out about his ordeal. Jesus Campos, who works at the Mandalay Bay2 casino, was on duty the night Stephen Paddock killed 58 people at a country music festival by shooting from his hotel room. The 25-year-old had previously sparked concern3 after vanishing ahead of planned media events, but has broken his silence in an interview with TV host Ellen DeGeneres4.

Walking on set with the aid of a walking stick, Mr Campos explained how on the night of 1 October he had been told to check on a fire escape door on the 32nd floor of the hotel that had been left open. Realising someone had put metal brackets on the door and unable to fully open it, he called an engineer. As he went to leave, Mr Campos said he heard “rapid fire” as Paddock began shooting through his hotel room door.

NRA says nothing could have stopped Las Vegas massacre

At first I took cover, I felt a burning sensation, I went to go lift my pant leg up and I saw the blood .

That s when I called it in on my radio that shots had been fired, he said. He decided not to say he was hit in order to free up radio traffic to allow security to coordinate the response. As engineer Stephen Schuck came to fix the fire escape door, Mr Campos yelled for him to take cover just as the shooting begun again .

If he didn t say that, I would have got hit, Mr Schuck told DeGeneres. Mr Campos has also been credited with saving the life of a female guest, ordering her to get back inside as she wandered out of her hotel room. DeGeneres said this would be the only time Mr Campos would speak about the ordeal.

I just wanna mention all the people that assisted that night, whether it was Metro, the FBI, the community especially coming out together to help everyone in need, Mr Campos said.

The shooting was the deadliest in modern US history5, leaving 58 dead and almost 500 injured.

Las Vegas shooting: Unarmed security guard who led police to gunman Stephen Paddock has ‘vanished’

The security guard who led police to Las Vegas1 shooter Stephen Paddock2 has vanished, his union president said.

Jesus Campos3 had been due to break his media silence following the devastating attack on a music festival that left 58 dead. But the night before his interviews were due to take place he disappeared, according to David Hickey of the Security, Police, and Fire Professionals of America (SPFPA). Mr Hickey said he later received a message saying Mr Campos had been taken to urgent care facility UMC Quick Care, according to Fox News4.

“For the past four days he’s been preparing.. . we had a meeting with MGM officials, and after that meeting was over, we talked about the interviews, we went to a private area, and when we came out, Mr Campos was gone, Mr Hickey said.

“Right now I’m just concerned where my member is, and what his condition is . It’s highly unusual .

I’m hoping everything is OK with him and I’m sure MGM or the union will let (media) know when we hear something.”

A spokesperson for UMC Quick Care say they had “heard nothing” about Mr Campos attending one of their centres. Mr Campos was shot as he approached the 32nd floor suite of the Mandalay Bay hotel, from where 64-year-old gunman Paddock was firing customised automatic weapons into crowds at a festival below. After raising the alarm with police, Mr Campos reportedly remained nearby, helping to evacuate rooms on the same floor before being ordered to leave himself.

He was hit in the right leg by a bullet and was due to be operated on . His injuries were not believed to be serious. Mr Campos was hailed a hero for raising the alarm, and received a union award in the wake of the attack.

But he has also found himself at the centre of conspiracy theories surrounding the shooting.5

Internet forums went into overdrive after police revised the timeline of the shooting after the attack. Online sleuths claimed entirely without basis that Mr Campos was somehow involved in the massacre. Some say they have even visited Mr Campos’ house, and are poring through his online footprint in an attempt to make their theories stick.

False reports have attempted to blame him for the attack, reviving conspiracy theories about there being another shooter on the night of the attack, which have been rejected by police.
