I am now doubting that the shooter used both windows in each room.
When they mentioned that SWAT had to breach the connecting door between 134 and 135, which means it was locked from the inside of 134, it made me think he was not running between both windows.
I am leaning towards the possibility that the window was broken by the explosive breach into the room. I have not seen any confirmation that bullet shells were found in 134, or even guns. All we know is that the camera(s) on the service cart were wired into 134 and ran into 135, not much more.
Unless someone can point me to the Sheriff or FBI confirming this?

I still want to know what happened to the Aussie guy who claimed the day after the shooting (in mainstream media) that he was staying IN 32134 on the 32nd floor during the shooting.
I understand the NY post isn't necessarily mainstream but it appears this story has been wiped from many of the original sources:
Also more details: www.dailymail.co.uk... (says the LVPD used his room - 32134 - to breach into Paddock's room).

Thank you. That has been the case in every hotel I've ever visited and had adjoining rooms. My buddy who works in the industry told me the same thing.
If he had rented both 134 and 135 he would have had to have entered 134 with the keycard for that door, unlock the adjoining door, exit 134 by the keycard door, enter 135 with the keycard for it and unlock the deadbolt door to 134. If nobody locked those two rooms back up, if he was moving between those rooms during the shooting there would have been no reason to breach the door joining the two rooms.
It is kinda hard to believe that he shot from 134 and took the time to lock it up before moving over to 135. BUT---it's kinda hard to believe that someone would shoot blindly into a crowd for no reason.
However---there is a possible explanation that would require knowing the conditions that evening. Was the wind blowing and from what direction? Entirely possible that the door to the adjoining room simply blew shut due to a gust of wind coming through the open windows in the room---that it was not "locked" as the cops thought but was closed so they assumed it was locked and set the breach charges....just looking at the possibilities. We have a couple of doors in our house that will slam shut from time to time if a stiff breeze comes through.
ETA: OR---as my Beloved just pointed out to me, the concussion from breaching the suite door could have caused the interior door to close!
