It was also my understanding from the get-go that the security guard was shot through the door before the other shooting occurred. He notified the police that a shooting had occurred initially. He was investigating a door alarm.
There has been and is a lot of false information and innuendo coming from the media. As for the police reports being wrong, I don't know that anyone has seen a police report since it's an ongoing investigation.
“We can’t put Band-Aids on everything,” Officer Larry Hadfield, a spokesman for the department, told Fox News on Tuesday when asked about the change in the timeline. He said the information police release is what they know at the time and everything is subject to change as the investigation develops.
One of the major changes in the revised timeline is when hotel security guard Jesus Campos was shot. Police learned that he was shot before the attack, not after, as was previously stated. Paddock also checked into the hotel three days earlier than first reported.
Debra DeShong, a spokeswoman for MGM, said in a statement, “We cannot be certain about the most recent timeline that has been communicated publically (sic), and we believe what is currently being expressed may not be accurate.”

The plot thickens. Paddock's home, now a crime scene was burglarized this past weekend. Time to invest in aluminum foil futures.

He actually isn't the choirboy the MSM is making him out to be. He has a couple of bench warrants out on him in California, and has been arrested for assault, and been in front of a judge on several occasions, but has never done anything that would flag him on a NICS check.
Reports of two rifles firing from different areas is easily explained, and if you've fired any rounds in bare hill areas from the bottom of the hollow, then you know about echoes. Cities are same-same; those tall FLAT FACED buildings will make sound echo really well, and the more of them there are, the more echoes you're going to get.
He DID visit some of the public firing ranges in Las Vegas. They already know that. But even if he didn't that doesn't stop up any holes. If you've been to Nevada then you know that the state is mostly Federal land, and there are literally hundreds of square miles one can go to and shoot enough to make it sound like a small brush war and nobody would likely be in hearing distance. And with what he was planning, I'd think that he'd want to keep it to himself as to all that practice. Less questions to answer about all that shooting.
This isn't the first time he planned a shooting. They have info now that he planned shootings in Boston and other cities having big events. And one of them was in Las Vegas at another previous outdoor concert.
Look at the perpetrators of some of the other mass shootings. The Virginia college shooter was a little creepy and a butthead, but no one suspected him of planning the shooting he carried out at the college. The shooter that killed the all the kids in a Connecticut school children was mentally ill, killed his mother, took the guns from the house and shot up the school. The guy that killed the black people in the church was a failure of the background check system; he should have been prohibited from buying but slipped through due to error of not posting his record on the system. The shooter that shot up the theater in Aurora, Colorado, James Holmes, was known by the college he was attending to be mentally ill, but had not been adjudicated by the court as mentally ill, so this had not been uploaded to the NICS, system, and as such was not a prohibited person.
There's a pattern here; the most recent (year 2000 forward) mass shooters were all suffering from some mental illness. Two were diagnosed as such, yet they still got their hands on guns to commit the crimes. We don't have a gun problem, we have an undiagnosed mental illness problem. And you can thank the states for defunding most mental health facilities to pay for the unending Federal mandates on the states for 'feel good' legislation that kicked the mentally ill to the curb, and that's documented fact.

What about the sonic boom the bullets make? When taking my turn at the local Army 200 meters rifle range pit I can clearly hear the blast of the rifle followed by the "Crack!" of the bullet breaking the sound barrier...that might have believe the "non-gun people" that 2 weapons were firing at the same time.
“More importantly, when the audio from the Las Vegas shooting is analyzed, it reveals TWO shooters operating at the same time, not just one shooter,” Adams added. “Shooter #1 is operating at 425 – 475 yards, which is consistent with the Mandalay Bay hotel, but shooter #2 is operating at approximately 250 – 270 yards.”

A good possibility. We had M-60s fired over our heads in Army basic. The crack is quite loud.

When I was in the army, we had classes on "Crack to Thump." It was a way of determining the range of someone shooting at you. The crack was the bullet passing overhead, and you counted the seconds to the thump, which was the report of the rifle. I forget the speed of sound, but generally where we were headed, the training was useless.

Are you sure?
I was on range detail on live fire day. They made the M60 sounds using a tank of compressed gas. We had to unhook them at the end of the day. When we got back to the barracks, many guys swore up and down they saw the tracers going overhead.........
