The Las Vegas Metropolitan's Police Department crime scene detail is still processing evidence from Stephen Paddock's 32nd floor Mandalay Bay hotel room.

Police say they've recovered at least three cell phones and that the FBI is helping them mine data from the phones to reveal Paddock's contacts.

"We have to look at what numbers are in it. We have to look at what data is in it. We have to look at what calls were made, versus calls coming in," says Assistant Sheriff Todd Fasulo.

On Monday, the timeline of events changed when Sheriff Joe Lombardo revealed hotel security guard Jesus Campos was shot at 9:59 p.m., six minutes before the barrage of deadly gunfire on the concertgoers below.

LVMPD has said it didn't know the security officer had been shot by an armed hotel guest until 10:18 p.m.

The new information led to questions about whether or not Mandalay Bay security ever notified LVMPD during the six minutes the incident was contained to events unfolding on the 32nd floor.

During an interview Tuesday, Assistant Sheriff Fasulo said he was unaware if LVMPD had received a call from Mandalay Bay reporting that its security guard had been shot.

Representatives from Mandalay Bay acknowledged the question in an email from News 3 but declined to comment.

"Things will change as more information comes to the surface," said Fasulo, on the new information that changed the timeline of events.

Barring any significant developments, LVMPD's next scheduled news conference will happen on Friday.
