Las Vegas police release more records from Oct. 1 mass shooting


Police in Las Vegas have released more records about the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. Metro Police released just over 200 hours of video footage from four traffic cameras and an airplane that circled the festival grounds for about six hours.

The plane approached Mandalay Bay at around 12:25 a.m., about an hour and a half after the attack.

The camera switches to infrared, and you can see people who are still out walking around some two and a half hours after the shooting.

As the sun begins to rise, the camera switches back into a normal view, and begins to show the festival grounds. It shows the victims who did not make it out of the concert venue.

8 News Now has decided not to show any of the main concert ground, especially the daytime video out of respect for all the victims and their families.

The videos do not have sound but they show the massive emergency response to the deadly 1 October shooting.

This is the third release of public records following a court order.

Courts ordered the release of public records including police body-camera video, dispatch logs, witness accounts and officer reports from the Oct. 1 shooting that killed 58 people and injured hundreds on the Las Vegas Strip.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo has banned comment from the department about the material.

The FBI has also declined to comment.

Both say they don’t have a motive for the attack, and that the investigation is ongoing.

They say gunman Stephen Paddock acted alone in shooting from a high-rise hotel room into an outdoor concert crowd below, and that the attack had no link to international terrorism.
