Dave Hickey, president of the union representing Mr. Campos, said: "We just want to make sure that Mr. Campos and all of our officers are recognized for what they do every day, which is protect people", Telegraph reported.
As Campos tried to get into the room, Paddock, who had set up cameras outside his room, opened fire on him through the door, hitting the security guard in the leg. Particularly, Jesus Campos, identified as the Mandalay Bay security guard who led Metro Police to the suspect, while he was injured.
"His bravery was incredible because he remained with our officers, providing them the key pass to access the door and continued to help them clear rooms until our officers demanded he seek medical attention", Lombardo continued.
Campos, reached by ABC News, said he was "just doing my job" and was "fine" after the drama.

The No. 2 official in the Federal Bureau of Investigation said Wednesday he was surprised investigators had not uncovered more. According to FOX News , this discovery now places the attacker's girlfriend Marilou Danley in the center of the investigation.
"Anyone of us could have been in the position he was in".
"It's unbelievable that that [sic] security guard didn't sustain additional injury". "We're extremely proud of Jesus and more importantly we're happy for him and his family that his wound was not as numerous people that were killed".
Very few security guards at the casino and hotel complex are armed, and Campos and others deserve accolades for rushing into the line of fire to stop the killer, said a union rep for the workers.
On Sunday, about 22,000 concertgoers were attending the final night of the Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip - across the street from the Mandalay Bay hotel - when Paddock began his deadly assault.

The security guard approached Paddock's room unarmed and distracted him until he contacted the police on the radio. Now, his option would have been try to do it himself.
"It was the security guard", Lombardo said during a news conference.
The search for Paddock's motive in the attack is ongoing, but courage is easy to be found in the security professionals who helped to put an end to Paddock's massacre on Sunday, says Hickey.
