Las Vegas police have released more documents from its investigation into the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
The department says a disk made public Wednesday contains dispatch logs and officer reports totaling around 2,100 pages about the October attack that killed 58 people and injured hundreds.
In File 20, a person who was a hairstylist made a voluntary statement to police that they had a client named Paddock who said he couldn’t believe they made the concert outdoors because anybody could shoot into the crowd from the casino across the way. The hairstylist also mentioned a person matching the description of Marilou Danley, Paddock’s girlfriend, who arrived at the end of the haircut.
The stylist said, “I asked her, ‘Do you know what he’s been saying to me?’ She’s like, ‘Oh, what, about somebody shooting into a crowd and, you know, wanting to hurt a lot of people?”
The stylist told police that the client said, “I wonder what she’s worried about? she’ll be out of the county.”
The stylist told police they reported the incident to Metro.
(These files are in addition to the 10 that were released last week – in all there are 26 files)
The release of information comes after The Associated Press and other media organizations sued for recordings and documents to shed light on the response by public agencies, emergency workers and hotel officials. Police are releasing the information in batches.
Some 1,200 pages of documents released a week ago included accounts by two people who said a person they believed to be the gunman ranted in the days before the attack about the U.S. government and gun control.
Video released May 2 from two officers’ body-worn cameras showed police blasting through the door of a high-rise hotel suite where authorities say Stephen Paddock opened fire from the windows and then killed himself.
