Public relations nightmare for the Las Vegas Police Department and Mandalay Bay

Las Vegas Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo changed the timeline Monday of the shooting by stating that the Mandalay Bay security officer had now been shot at 9:59pm, six minutes before the gunman opened fire on the Route 91 music festival on Sunday October 1.

That contradicted Lombardo’s statements made to the press last week. Lombardo also stated that the gunman did not check into the Mandalay Bay on September 28 as he stated last week, but rather the 25th.

Tuesday evening the Associated Press reported that MGM Resorts International, the owners of the Mandalay Bay, were questioning the latest timeline of events provided by the police.

MGM spokeswoman, Debra DeShong told the AP that “what is currently being expressed may not be accurate.”   She did not elaborate.

MGM Resorts International should immediately release to the media the Mandalay Bay security dispatch records that would indicate the time the security officer called in that he was shot and the time they notified 911.

If indeed they notified the LVMPD the police should immediately release the recording of the police communications dispatcher who took the call if that indeed did happen.

That would end all this mystery of why the police did not know that there was an active shooter on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay six minutes before the gunman opened fire. Being that the gunman fired for about 10 minutes into a crowd of helpless people, six minutes could have made all the difference in the world.

The worst mass shooting in modern American history and this investigation is becoming a public disgrace.

    ALL audio recordings prove 2 or more shooters by rapport and echo, 2 different caliber also. A certain cell phone captured a shooter on the ground in the crowd….
