MGM Resorts: 1 October shooting timeline reported not accurate


Joele Frank, a strategic communications firm on behalf of MGM Resorts International sent News 3 the following statement disputing the timetable of the 1 October shooting.

It read:

Although we prefer not to comment on the details of the investigation, we are issuing this statement to correct some of the misinformation that has been reported. The 9:59 p.m. PDT time was derived from a Mandalay Bay report manually created after the fact without the benefit of information we now have. We are now confident that the time stated in this report is not accurate. We know that shots were being fired at the festival lot at the same time as, or within 40 seconds after, the time Jesus Campos first reported that shots were fired over the radio. Metro officers were together with armed Mandalay Bay security officers in the building when Campos first reported that shots were fired over the radio. These Metro officers and armed Mandalay Bay security officers immediately responded to the 32nd floor. We will continue to work with law enforcement as we have from the first moments of this tragedy as they work toward developing an accurate timeline.

On Monday, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reported hotel security guard Jesus Campos was shot six minutes before shots were fired at concertgoers, leaving that time period in question.

LVMPD is scheduled to have another press conference regarding the shooting on Friday.
