A worker at the Mandalay Bay hotel said that he warned staff to report an active shooter before gunman Stephen Paddock open fire on the crowd below.
His claim adds doubts about the timeline given by police about what happened Oct. 1.
Authorities claim the assault began with Paddock opening fire on concertgoers at the Route 91 Festival.
But the worker’s claim says that an unarmed guard Jesus Campos—who was initially believed to have approached and been shot by Paddock during his massacre—was shot before the assault, with that gunshot heard by a maintenance worker reports Newsweek.
“As soon as I started to go to a door to my left the rounds started coming down the hallway,” Stephen Schuck said. “I could feel them pass right behind my head.
“It was kind of relentless so I called over the radio what was going on,” he said. “As soon as the shooting stopped we made our way down the hallway and took cover again and then the shooting started again.”
The worker’s testimony casts new doubts, and has spurned countless conspiracy theories about the police response to the shooting, with delayed communication possibly extending the time that Paddock had to fire upon civilians from his sniper’s nest on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay, where he had an arsenal of 23 guns, scopes and surveillance cameras.
Whether the authorities could have arrived to stop Paddock opening fire on the crowds is unknown, but considered highly unlikely, given the short time between the shooting of Campos and Paddock’s subsequent hail of fire that included more than 1,000 bullets.
Police are still searching for a motive, but have ruled out a connection to the Islamic State militant group (ISIS), which claimed the attack the day after the assault.
They have yet to mention the fact that all recent mass-shootings have been perpetrated by a mentally ill Democrat or child of a Democrat on prescription pharmaceutical drugs for various mental issues.
Authorities changed the version of events on Monday, saying that Paddock opened fire on a security guard six minutes before he shot onto revelers, killing at least 58 people and injured more than 500. Campos called hotel dispatchers on his radio and helped to clear the rooms on the 32nd floor while he was injured.
The company that runs the Mandalay Bay hotel, MGM Resorts, said on Tuesday that it was disputing the new timeline.
