He was critical in stopping the shooting.  He let the police know exactly where the shooter was. With the shooter's stockpile,  he could have gone on much longer. And if the police couldn't locate him quickly,  I think he would have continued.  So yes, hero tag is appropriate.

When I was a security guard, I used to get high on rounds, and fark my girl on the huge leather couch in the temporary Vice Chancellor's office on the 4th floor of Norlin Library.  And get paid to do it.  Night shift was fkn awesome.

But that was 35 years ago.  Times have changed.  This guy proves it.

All they are sure of is when the shooting stopped. The sheriff had a press conference earlier tonight that said the shooter had an escape plan and it's possible he shot himself at the time of the breech of the door.

okay captain hindsight. Next time, you go running down the hallway towards a heavily armed man with a service pistol and no plan. Let us know how that works out for you.

Why would the shooter stop shooting and make no attempt at leaving the room for almost an hour if he had not already killed himself?  I think the most likely scenario is that the security guard spooked him he killed himself early anticipating a breach from SWAT that was still an hour away.  The sheriff is in damage control mode trying to explain the long delay between the shooter stopping and the time police allowed first responders onto the scene.  If anything the security guard did more to stop the shooter than any of the police.

Or maybe the shooter stopped shooting shortly after the security guard approached, chilled in his room for an hour, and then shot himself right as SWAT showed up for reasons.

Jesus Campos? That name sounds suspiciously immigranty to me. Someone should call ICE just in case.

Seriously though, Campos is definitely deserving of the Hero tag.

I'm amazed at all the conspiracy shiat already brewing from morons about this. Why? To what end? The 9/11 truther shiat is stupid but at least you can say "well they did this to justify two wars and increased surveillance of the American people". Absolutely no one benefits from these mass shootings except maybe gun manufacturers because the crazies always go out and buy more guns after. But the conspiracy loons think this was a "false flag" with "crisis actors" or some shiat. Uh, for what? The government, Democratic or Republican, has never done jack shiat in response to a shooting.

Some of them were awful busy protecting the crowd, providing cover fire, evacuating the wounded and providing life-saving aid to those wounded who were unable to be evacuated.

I did not say that was not the case.  I was responding to someone who said pointing out the room where the shooter was allowed police to stop him faster than they would have been able to otherwise.  There was an almost an hour of no shooting between the security guard identifying the room and police taking any action against the shooter.  In all likelihood the security guard did more to deter the shooter than the police did an hour later.  That was my only point.

Well, actually, I would hope the police did not provide any covering fire.  Shooting at the 32nd floor of an occupied hotel from the ground would be both useless and would potentially kill people in the building from stray bullets.  Any medical aid they provided was useful though.

my guess is that yes, jesus spooked him into stopping. then he surfed the internet and watched some tv to see what he managed to do, to guage the response. he didnt resume shooting because a lot of the people had already fled and maybe he'd blown his load. he'd done what he came to do. and then when he saw the cops in the hall on his monitor he ended it.
