Title: Wounded casino security guard vanishes from Las Vegas — and reappears on the set of 'Ellen'

The mystery is over: Las Vegas security guard Jesus Campos has been found. On the set of “Ellen.”

On Wednesday, Ellen DeGeneres’ television talk show is expected to broadcast the much-anticipated first interview with the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino security guard who was the first shooting victim in the Oct. 1 massacre in Las Vegas.

DeGeneres tweeted a photo of Campos holding a cane on the set Tuesday alongside maintenance engineer Stephen Schuck, who was also shot at by the gunman on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel.

Campos has become a focal point of media attention and speculation over the last week as journalists — confronted by shifting timelines given by police, and by near-total silence from the Mandalay Bay’s owners — sought his firsthand story of how the massacre unfolded and how the hotel responded. Campos mysteriously left a Las Vegas hotel room Thursday where he was preparing for televised interviews on the Sean Hannity show on Fox, as well as news shows on CNN, CBS, ABC and NBC. No interviews took place.

David Hickey, president of the Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America union that represents the security guards at Mandalay Bay, previously told The Times that he was attending a meeting with MGM representatives in one room of the suite as Campos waited with a security guard — hired by MGM — and another union member in the living room.

When the meeting ended about 2 p.m., Hickey said Campos no longer was in the room.

“When I got in touch with the other union member, I was told Campos was taken to the Quick Care” health clinic, Hickey said. Hickey didn’t hear from the guard afterward and announced to a scrum of reporters that night that Campos had canceled interviews. Campos didn’t contact his union in the days after he walked away.

The company that owns the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino issued a statement Tuesday that implied it was in touch with Campos as questions mounted over the Las Vegas casino’s response to the mass shooting.

“Jesus Campos wants to tell his story at a time and place of his choosing,” Debra DeShong, a spokeswoman for MGM Resorts International, said in a written statement after the Los Angeles Times requested an interview with him. “He’s asked that everyone respect his request for privacy. We could not be more proud of Jesus.”

Las Vegas police initially stated that Paddock shot Campos through the door of his hotel suite on the 32nd floor midway through his attack on the concert, essentially crediting Campos with turning Paddock’s attention away from the Route 91 Harvest country music festival across the street.

But police later said that Campos was shot six minutes before the attack began, and then officials changed their story again, stating that Campos was shot moments before Paddock began his attack on the concert.

Police and casino officials have said that Campos promptly reported the gunman to hotel security and that police officers and armed security responded immediately to the 32nd floor, where Paddock had a suite.

But the first officers to get to the floor arrived 12 minutes after Paddock had launched his assault on the crowd — and two minutes after he had stopped shooting — raising questions about how quickly the hotel had informed officers on the scene about Campos’ report.


LQQKs like he wasn't taken by aliens.

Hannity is a nobody. Despite all the a$$kissing of Bush and Trump, Sean hasn't gotten any honors, not even a gift-card for a Taco Bowl at Trump Towers Cafe.

Ellen received the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Javanka likes Ellen better.

Hannity is a nobody.

He was supposed to interview with ABCNNBCBS plus get a fat guest fee from Vannity. These interviews were already in the works and would have all occurred within just a few hours of each other. Then he just disappears.

Ellen must have paid one hell of a lot to get this. Or MGM struck some deal to keep her from asking him any hard questions that would increase the Mandalay's legal liability.

There's no other good explanation for this. Going on Ellen is as stupid as going on The View. He might as well give an interview to Dancing With The Stars.

Read on ... From the Washington Post ... Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos resurfaces on ‘Ellen DeGeneres Show’

The Mandalay Bay security guard who was described as “missing” in recent news reports has turned up on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” where he taped his first public account of being wounded as he responded to Stephen Paddock’s deadly shooting rampage in Las Vegas.

In a segment set for broadcast on Wednesday, Jesus Campos described how he was called to check on an open door near Paddock’s suite on the 32nd floor of the hotel and casino, and how he was struck by gunfire moments before the shooter unleashed a fusillade of bullets on a crowd of concertgoers below.

“As I was walking down, I heard rapid fire, and at first I took cover,” Campos said. “I felt a burning sensation. I went to go lift my pant leg up and I saw the blood. That’s when I called it in on my radio that shots have been fired.” Excerpts from the show were first published by the Las Vegas Review-Journal. Campos’s remarks didn’t deviate from what police and hotel officials have said publicly about the Oct. 1 attack, which left 58 people dead and more than 500 injured, but did offer a clear narrative about what Campos experienced that night.

The 25-year-old has been the subject of intense intrigue in the weeks since he was revealed as the first person to confront Paddock and report the shooting. Contradictory statements from police and hotel officials about when he arrived at the gunman’s room raised questions about the speed of the response from law enforcement and stoked conspiracy theories about the attack.

Police initially said Campos was shot at 9:59 p.m., several minutes before Paddock started firing from the smashed-out windows of his suite. Following pushback from Mandalay Bay’s owners, police amended the timeline, saying Campos had first arrived on the floor at 9:59 p.m. but wasn’t shot until roughly 10:05 p.m., about the time the mass shooting began. The first law enforcement officers arrived at 10:17 p.m., according to records.

The first law enforcement officers arrived at 10:17 p.m., according to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo.

Campos drew more attention last week when, without explanation, he skipped out on previously scheduled television interviews with Fox News and four other outlets, and fell out of contact with the Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America union, which was helping him coordinate the appearances. He had posted signs outside his home reading “no trespassing” and “no media on property,” according to the Review-Journal.

Various news reports referred to him as “missing” and “vanished,” creating an air of mystery around a crucial witness to the deadliest mass shooting in recent U.S. history. In the video, he did not explain why he chose DeGeneres’s show to tell his long-awaited story as opposed to all the other shows vying for the first interview.

Campos appeared nervous as he recounted the sequence of events that led him to Paddock’s room. He was joined on the show by Stephen Schuck, a building engineer who was on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay with him during the shooting. Campos spoke softly, avoided looking at the studio audience, and leaned forward in his seat as Schuck patted him on the back during some of his responses.

Clad in a gray suit and tie, Campos said he was on the 31st floor when he got a radio call to check on a door that had been left ajar near Paddock’s room on the 32nd floor. As he climbed the stairwell, he found that another door had been jammed shut with brackets, he said.

Eventually he got onto the shooter’s floor using a different route. Schuck was sent to meet him to inspect the problem.

Around that time, Campos heard what he assumed were drilling sounds. As he walked down the hallway, he seemed to catch Paddock’s attention, he said. That’s when the gunfire started — Campos said he believed it was coming from behind Paddock’s door. “I don’t know how he was shooting but he shot out,” he said.

One of Paddock’s bullets hit Campos in the leg. Rather than using his radio to say that he was wounded, he used his cellphone, “just to clear radio traffic so they could coordinate the rest of the call,” he said.

According to Campos, a female guest came out of another room. “I told her to go back inside, it wasn’t safe,” he said.

Schuck, the building engineer, said he had just rounded the corner when he noticed Campos and started to hear the gunfire. At first he thought it was a jackhammer, he said, but knew that crews wouldn’t be working that late at night. Campos “leaned out and he said, ‘Take cover! Take cover!’ and yelled at me,” Schuck recalled. “Within milliseconds, if he didn’t say that I would have got hit.”

Schuck described how the two of them remained pinned in the hallway as Paddock fired, saying he could “feel the pressure” of bullets flying past his head. Both men said they were still rattled by the experience. “I’m doing better each day,” Campos said, “just healing mentally and physically.”

He thanked law enforcement officers and other first responders, and the community as a whole, for coming together “to help that night even in the darkest hour.”

DeGeneres praised Campos as a “hero” and said he had saved Schuck’s life and the life of the hotel guest. She presented them both with gifts: for Schuck, tickets to meet and watch the Indianapolis Colts; for Campos, season tickets to the Oakland Raiders when they make their planned move to Las Vegas.

When DeGeneres suggested that Campos’s appearance on her show would be his only public comment on the attack, Campos nodded in agreement.

“You being shot in the leg saved so many people’s lives,” DeGeneres said. “We just wanted to celebrate you.”

In the entire history of the world,the only nations that had to build walls to keep their own citizens from leaving were those with leftist governments.

How much money did Ellen pay him?

I didn't read your crappy WaPo article as soon as I realized you were double-posting it just like that retard "cranky" does to his articles.

All I see is he got some NFL tickets that he can't use until the 2019 or 2020 season after the Raiders move to Vegas.

Hannity would have paid in the tens of thousands, maybe over $100K.

televised interviews on the Sean Hannity show on Fox, as well as news shows on CNN, CBS, ABC and NBC. No interviews took place.

That's all they care about and it's why they're upset. Probably more upset that he screwed them out of their precious interviews than the fact that people died.

Schuck, Jesus, and Ellen.

Ellen will protect Deep State Don's false flag op, and promote the official "Lone Wolf" cover-up, even better than Hannity could have!

HA!! 'Ellen'?? TOTALLY PREDICTABLE. The PTB know they can trust a fellow subversive Team-Player sock-puppet to follow orders.

It is funny that this would be THE venue in which THE supposed key witness to the largest gun slaughter in US history "will tell his side of the story." But...Wasn't Jerry Springer available?

The feebs and Campos handlers choose 'Ellen' as the venue to control everything little scripted thing that is said. The manipulation and contempt of the American people with respect to this case by "Officials" can't be any more clear.

We are being mocked.

Bingo.

I'm surprised they are this transparent about what is just an obvious stunt.

Even during the taping I'd assume the puppet wore an earpiece just in case the script sounded...well, TOO scripted.

Most of the time it is.

However, I believe this latest act of stagecraft is about P-O-W-E-R...and maintaining it along with whatever shreds of credibility are remaining of the Authoritahs.

This Situation/Operation had apparently gone so bad that THIS poor sock-puppet is being asked to step forward and begged make an appearance on 'Ellen' of all shows. . Despite his obvious immigration status.

The PTB are hoping the "human interest" side will placate the sheeple and coincidentally help create an empathetic folk hero out of an Illegal Invader.

MEANWHILE, this guy presumably answered ZERO pertinent questions, nor would he be allowed to.

Ellen Degenerate has a money deal with the MGM which owns Mandalay bay. They even have slot machines with her picture on them to play. This is the corporation putting plaster and paint on the wounds. They literally are hiding any further facts behind a wall of $$$$$'s for Jeezus and Degenerate.

Exercising rights is only radical to two people, Tyrants and Slaves. Which are YOU? Our ignorance has driven us into slavery and we do not recognize it.

I had wondered if they had a business relationship with her directly. Apparently they have since 2014.

I saw a segment on Tucker Carlson. They showed the slot machines, said outright that MGM did stage-manage the whole thing and made the Ellen thing happen, probably out of fear of lawsuits.

If that's true, I expect Campos might disappear suddenly overseas, never to be heard from again.

Here's the segment, cued up to the Steyn interview:
