The security guard who was shot on Sunday night during the mass shooting on the Las Vegas Boulevard is recovering.

Jesus Campos spoke to ABC News and told them that he was just doing his job.


Campos did not have a gun when he approached the room where Stephen Paddock was allegedly firing upon thousands of people attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

Paddock apparently saw Campos approach and fired two hundred rounds through the hotel door.

Campos was hit but still managed to use his radio to call casino staff and tell them where the gunfire was coming from.
