Maintenance worker Stephen Schuck said Wednesday he told hotel dispatchers to call police and report a gunman had opened fire with a rifle inside the Mandalay Bay. The six minutes that passed between the hallway shooting and the start of Stephen Paddock firing into a crowd of concert goers 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 U.S. history. Paddock fired more than 1,000 bullets from his suite on the 32nd floor into the crowd, killing 58 people and injuring hundreds more. In recent days, a new level of uncertainty has emerged in the case, as police revised their account of what happened before and during the massacre. Ten days after the shooting, key details about what unfolded remain a mystery, while officials cannot seem to agree on basic facts about the timeline. Police, had previously said Paddock shot a hotel security guard during the rampage. then reversed course Monday and said the guard was actually wounded in the six minutes before the mass shooting began.
