The story around the recent Las Vegas shooting has become more confusing every day.
The Las Vegas Police seem to provide a story-changing revelation every time they open their mouths.
And one thing that the Sherriff just admitted finally sheds some light on what actually happened in the shooter’s hotel room.
It seems every other day something new about last month’s Las Vegas shooting comes out.
First the shooter’s girlfriend was a person of interest, then she wasn’t, then she was again.
Then the shooters house was broken into, but nobody knew why.
And just recently, the shooter’s brother was arrested for child pornography.
These are just a few of the twists and turns that have been thrown into this already confusing tragedy.
Now police have confirmed that a police officer fired his weapon in Stephen Paddock’s hotel room.
But it’s not for the reason you’d suspect.
Clark County Sherriff Joe Lombardo just reported that a police officer accidently discharged his weapon inside the hotel room where Stephen Paddock committed his act of murder.
As reported by the Las Vegas Review Journal:
“A Metropolitan Police Department officer accidentally discharged his weapon inside the Mandalay Bay gunman’s suite the night of the Oct. 1 shooting, the Clark County sheriff confirmed Monday.
The police firearm went off inside the suite sometime after officers made entry, Sheriff Joe Lombardo said. But the round or rounds were not fired in the same room where gunman Stephen Paddock was found dead with what has been described as a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
“It happened, and we’re investigating it, just like we do with any officer-involved use of force,” Lombardo told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “Nobody was struck.”
It’s unclear what caused the officer, who has not been named, to discharge his weapon.
Lombardo also confirmed Monday that the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay, where the gunman’s corner suite was located, did not have security cameras facing the gunman’s suite or the stairwell door that Paddock had apparently sealed sometime before the shooting. The only cameras on the floor faced the elevators.”
This wasn’t the only information to come out of this new revelation.
According to Lombardo, there were not any security cameras in the hallway outside of Paddock’s hotel room.
In fact, the only cameras on his floor faced the elevators.
It has taken a full month to go by for this information about the shooting to come out.
Answers about critical information surrounding the shooting have been hard to come by, and the information only seems to slip out piece by piece, often creating more questions than answers.
The only thing that seems to be concrete is that more twists are turns are probably on the way.
Only time will tell what really happened in that hotel room.
We will continue to keep you updated on this situation as it develops.
