Sheriff says officer fired shots in Las Vegas gunman’s room

Powered by Topple

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo now admits that an officer fired his weapon inside the hotel suite of mass murderer Stephen Paddock on the night of the deadliest shooting in American history.

Lombardo told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that the gun accidentally went off after officers made entry into the suit, but that the shots were not fired in the same room where Paddock’s body was found.

“It happened and we’re investigating it, just like we do with any officer-involved use of force,” he said. “Nobody was struck.”

The officer whose gun went off has not been named, and it is unknown what caused the weapon to fire.

Lombardo also told the Review-Journal that there were no security cameras facing Paddock’s room on the 32nd floor or the stairwell that Paddock had sealed. The only security cameras present were facing the elevators.

It has been about a month since the shooting and there seem to be more questions than answers.

The timeline of events has changed from the original official story told to the public, and investigators have still not released a cause of death for Paddock.
