The Arizona Republic - - USA Today -

Man­dalay Bay ho­tel of­fi­cials didn’t no­tify po­lice about a shoot­ing in a hall­way in­side the high-rise un­til af­ter Stephen Pad­dock opened fire on the crowd out­side at a coun­try mu­sic fes­ti­val, a fed­eral of­fi­cial told the As­so­ci­ated Press.

The dis­clo­sure means there might have been a de­lay of about six min­utes in sum­mon­ing po­lice to the scene of what be­came the dead­li­est mass shoot­ing in mod­ern U.S. his­tory.

The of­fi­cial was briefed by law en­force­ment and spoke on con­di­tion of anonymity.
