In the moments before Stephen Paddock, 64, opened fire on concertgoers at the Route 91 Festival in Las Vegas, a Security Guard was shot. Jesus Campos, the security guard in question, was supposed to break his silence relating to the shooting incident on Thursday in a series of five television interviews. However, Fox News reports that he didn’t show up and seems to have disappeared.

There is also some confusion about the timeline of the Las Vegas shooting, with MGM Resorts disputing the timeline calculated by police.

Campos disappears shortly before interviews begin

According to Stephanie Wash, union president for Campos, they were in a room getting ready for the first interview. She told ABC News they briefly left the room and when they went back, the security guard was gone. At present, it is unclear where Campos was on Friday morning. After social media users questioned why the interview didn’t air on Fox News, Sean Hannity said that Campos had “canceled” the interview.

As one of the most central figures in the Mandalay Bay mass shooting, there is little known about Campos and reportedly there is no social media footprint for the security guard.

Claims that security guard was 'second shooter'

Several “alternative” or fake news websites have reportedly claimed Campos may be the second shooter involved in the massacre. However fact-checking website Snopes claims to have shot down rumors that Campos had been arrested as an accomplice to the massacre.

Snopes claims the CNN lookalike website, known for fake news, published an article on October 12, claiming Campos (which they misspelled at Compos) had also shot at the concertgoers from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay.

That report claimed "Compos" had shot Paddock in the head and then shot himself in the arm as a cover for his actions.

However, there is also a dispute over the police timeline relating to the mass shooting, where hotel officials say Paddock launched his shooting spree just 40 seconds after shooting the security guard. As Campos had radioed for help, they believe the shooting began either at the same time as, or within 40 seconds of Campos’ radio call.

However, police believe Paddock shot Campos through the door of his hotel suite a full six minutes before turning his weapon onto the concertgoers below. The shooter went on to kill 58 people and wounded almost 500 others before he turned the gun on himself and died. Police believe Paddock shot off over 1,000 rounds from the hotel room window in just ten minutes. First responders arrived on the scene two minutes later. Police are still unable to establish the motive for the crime.
