An unarmed security guard has been hailed as a hero after he was the first on the scene to approach Las Vegas1 gunman Stephen Paddock2. Jesus Campos was likely just carrying a baton when he approached the suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel from where 64-year-old shooter Paddock was unloading bullets onto crowds at a festival below. Mr Campos tried to open the door but it was barricaded and Paddock had also seen him coming, swiftly firing through the door and hitting Mr Campos in the leg, Dave Hickey, president of the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America told the Daily Beast3.
But despite his injuries, Mr Campos was able to radio police and share the shooter’s location.
“We received information via their dispatch centre that helped us locate where this individual was sequestered,” Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said. After informing police, Mr Campos remained in the vicinity, helping to evacuate rooms on the same floor before being ordered to leave himself.
“I think we need to recognise the position that these officers hold, Mr Hickey said. “Security professionals in those kind of venues whether it s a bank or a hotel or Disney World I m telling you that I don t think that our officers are recognised enough for the valuable role that they play in protecting property, people and even the nation.”
Mr Hickey said Mr Campos received a bullet to his right leg and will be operated on in due course. Officials are still trying to piece together the motive to Sunday’s attack which saw 58 people killed and 489 injured.
Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said Stephen Paddock rented a room through Airbnb at the Ogden hotel in downtown Las Vegas4 weeks before the attack when another music festival was playing.
His comments came shortly after Paddock s girlfriend Marilou Danley said she had no idea5 he was planning an attack on the Strip and was devastated for the victims.

Night Security – Hammersmith / Fulham West London
Visitors to the inaugural Scampton Airshow this coming weekend will have to pass through airport-style security checks on the way in. Following terrorist attacks including in Manchester, London, Barcelona, Paris and Nice, the security services and organisers of the show are leaving nothing to chance during the event on September 9 and 10. There will be several airport-style security scanners that visitors to the show will pass through on entry.
The current terror threat in the UK is classed as ‘severe’, which is the second highest of five after ‘critical’. But organisers say the precautions aim to ensure that the thousands of visitors expected at the show “feel safe”. An air show spokesman said: “Public safety is at the very heart of this air show and we are committed to making sure visitors feel safe at all times.
“A significant number of marshals will be highly visible at this year’s show with support from RAF personnel and Lincolnshire Police .
The team will all be engaging with visitors to ensure an enjoyable safe show for all.
“We are delighted to be working in partnership with Lincolnshire Police and RAF police to deliver you a safe and enjoyable show.
“All visitors will enter an through an airport style security system; so please arrive in plenty of time to go through these processes.
“We actively encourage any visitors who see suspicious behaviour to report it to either the police or to speak with other show staff who will act on your information.
“The Scampton site benefits from a dedicated control area which has extensive CCTV which will be continuously monitored and recorded for your safety.
“We wish you all a safe and extremely enjoyable day.”
