Richmond Times-Dispatch - - NATION & WORLD -

Man­dalay Bay ho­tel of­fi­cials said Thurs­day that the Las Ve­gas gun­man wounded a guard in a ho­tel hall­way within 40 sec­onds of fir­ing into the crowd at a mu­sic fes­ti­val, dis­put­ing a po­lice time­line that put six min­utes from the time the guard was shot and when Stephen Pad­dock com­mit­ted the worst mass shoot­ing in mod­ern U.S. his­tory.

In the most re­cent chronol­ogy given by in­ves­ti­ga­tors on Mon­day, po­lice said Pad­dock sprayed 200 rounds into the hall­way on the 32nd floor Oct. 1, wound­ing an un­armed guard in the leg, six min­utes be­fore he un­leashed his bar­rage of bul­lets on the fes­ti­val crowd.

He killed 58 peo­ple and wounded nearly 500 be­fore tak­ing his own life.
