I think you have your facts a little mixed up.
There definitely is a door between 134 and 135. You can see my previous replies here that show the proper floor plans, including a video of the exact room, and images of identical rooms. This door was later revealed to be locked from the inside of 134 and police had to breach it with explosives after breaching the door into 135. So that is not the door that was ajar.
The door that was supposedly screwed shut was the stairwell door, no the door to 135. This was reported to have caused the first responders and security guard to use the elevator instead. I think SWAT has to pry the door open.
Original reports regarding the security guard did in fact mention that the door to 135 was ajar, and that was the reason he attempted to enter it. It was reported that the door was barricaded with furniture on the inside too, so he couldn't enter. That is when he got shot at through the door. However, original reports were saying that took place after the shooting started, not before, which didn't make sense.
What doesn't make sense now is how the door was supposedly ajar, but yet barricaded. You would think if someone attempted to barricade a door they would also first close it and lock it.
It also doesn't make sense when the police claim he wanted to escape, and looked for any way possible to escape, but yet barricaded the door, and even locked the connecting door from within 134, and screwed the stairwell door closed? Sounds more like someone trapped him in, and the shots at 10:09 were to keep him inside.
Mr Campos tried to open the door but it was barricaded and Paddock had also seen him coming, swiftly firing through the door and hitting Mr Campos in the leg, Dave Hickey, president of the International Union, Security, Police and Fire Professionals of America told the Daily Beast.
Since Paddock had blocked stairwell doors leading to the hallway outside his room, Campos had to use the elevator to try and find the shooter who was firing on the crowd below. When he tried to enter Paddock’s room, Campos discovered that the door had been barricaded just before the bullets flew.
Mandalay Bay security guard Jesus Campos was carrying just a nightstick when he tried to open Paddock’s barricaded door on the hotel’s 32nd floor Sunday night, the Daily Beast reports.
Paddock, who had cameras looking outside his room, stopped shooting at the crowds below and fired through the door at Campos, blasting him in the right leg.
Additional security guards and police officers rushed to the scene and exchanged gunfire with Paddock.
The man accused of carrying out last week’s deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas, Stephen Paddock, was a caring person who tried his best to "make people happy," a friend and longtime employee of his told ABC News’
“Good Morning America” today. “He actually cared about everybody,” said Lisa Crawford of Dallas, who managed an apartment that Paddock owned from 2006 to 2012. “He tried to make people happy. He tried to make people care. And I don’t know what happened to him,” she said as she fought to hold back tears.
Jesus Compos, the Las Vegas security guard at the Mandalay Bay Casino, hailed as a hero. Allegedly bravely took a bullet to the leg, in a hail of gunfire (some say 200 rds.), while attempting to stop the Las Vegas shooter. Even while injured Compos allegedly assisted authorities clearing rooms until he was ordered to leave and seek medical attention.
Quite the story, but who is Jesus Compos? One would think there would be pictures of this heroic person who allegedly said he was "just doing my job" plastered all over the internet, yet I am unable to find a single one. An alleged coworker has started a gofundme account in his name seeking financial relief for Compos to recover, but even there there is no photo or bio.
At first glance the Compos story seems to be but a sidebar to the larger and tragic LV shooting, but upon closer inspection his seeming disappearance seems very odd indeed. Where is he? Is he even real? What did he see? Now, nearly a week to the day after the shootings, his perspective on the incident seems more valuable than ever...especially given the lack of information, and the conflicting stories which do exist. Where is Jesus Compos?
