We often forget the actual first responders during times of horrible atrocities. The stories of SWAT and other authorities which come after death toll counts are often more glamorous.
We appreciate the brave work of the SWAT team responding to Mandalay Bay during the Vegas shooting, however, we would like to pay a special tribute to a man named Jesus Campos.
During the Mandalay Bay Shooting he was working security and was one of the first individuals responding. Security responded to the room during this incident. Mr. Campos was shot in the leg but continued his duties for the day. The security officers were able to keep the shooter at bay within his room. This was paramount for the SWAT team.
The ability to know exactly where the shooter was for the fastest response saved more lives. Should the Shooter have been able to move and hide in different rooms set off explosives ect., the death toll could have dramatically increased. We would like to express a sincere gratitude to all of the medical professionals, law enforcement, security and other first responders during this tragic event.
Our deepest sympathy lies with all of the victims and their families.
