Las Vegas Shooting: Mandalay Security Officer Jesus Campos

From my notes:  “AP News reports the Las Vegas murderer had two “bump-stocks” that could have converted semi-automatic firearms into fully automatic ones. They also had to point out that California Senator Dianne Fienstien has been ‘railing against’ bump-stocks.”

Security officer Jesus Campos had been in the building, patrolling the halls and was sent to an area on reports of an unknown disturbance. When he got to the 32nd floor, Campos found the stairwells had been barricaded and used the elevator to investigate.

When Campos approached the suite, he was shot in the upper right thigh through the door. He crawled back to elevators and radioed the Mandalay’s security dispatch giving the police the shooter’s exact room.

Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo credits Campo with providing enough diversionary time to save not only officers, guests, but to force the murderer to turn his attention to something other than shooting concert-goers.

“His bravery was amazing because he remained with our officers, providing them the key pass to access the door and continued to help them clear rooms until our officers demanded he seek medical attention.”
