The New Zealand Herald - - WORLD -

A main­te­nance worker, Stephen Schuck, said he told ho­tel dis­patch­ers to call po­lice and re­port a gun­man had opened fire with a ri­fle in­side Man­dalay Bay be­fore the shooter be­gan fir­ing from his high-rise suite into a crowd at a nearby mu­si­cal per­for­mance. Schuck told NBC News that he was check­ing out a re­port of a jammed fire door. The re­vised time­line has re­newed ques­tions about whether bet­ter com­mu­ni­ca­tion might have al­lowed po­lice to re­spond more quickly and take out the gun­man be­fore he com­mit­ted the dead­li­est mass shoot­ing in modern US his­tory.
