Hotel questions new timeline of Vegas shooting

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A spokeswoman for the Las Vegas hotel where a gunman committed the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history is questioning the latest timeline of events provided by police.

MGM Resorts International spokeswoman Debra DeShong said Tuesday the company believes “what is currently being expressed may not be accurate.”

She didn’t elaborate, but the statement comes a day after Last Vegas police revised their chronology of events for the night of Oct. 1, when gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel and killed 58 people.

Police initially said Paddock stopped firing on the crowd to shoot through his door and wound a Mandalay Bay security guard who was outside. On Monday, they said the guard actually was wounded six minutes before Paddock started the massacre.

Meanwhile, FBI agents returned to a house in Reno owned by Las Vegas shooter Stephen Paddock after local police determined someone had broken into the home over the weekend.

Reno police officer Tim Broadway confirmed Tuesday that police were called to the house early Sunday by a neighbor who noticed a light on inside the home in an upscale community on the edge of the Sierra foothills along Interstate 80.

Broadway says the officers discovered “someone had broken into the house” and immediately contacted the FBI. He says it’s not clear how the person or persons gained entry or whether anything was taken.

Broadway says they don’t have any suspects or descriptions of possible suspects. He told The Associated Press, “Nobody really saw anything, just a light was on with nobody in the residence.”

He says local police are working in conjunction with the FBI to make sure no one else enters the home.
