1 October body camera video shows people sleeping in rooms unaware of active shooter

Local News

Police in Las Vegas have released more body-worn camera videos of officers responding to the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history. 1 October happened nearly a year ago.

Amid the 45 clips made public Wednesday, police are seen in body-camera video directing buses with evacuated people to shelter at a UNLV campus arena following the shooting, along with briefly handcuffing a man found in landscaping outside of Mandalay Bay Hotel which is where gunman Stephen Paddock killed 58 people.

An officer asks the handcuffed man if he was aware of what had happened earlier before checking his identification and releasing him four minutes later.

In the video clip below officers can be seen going from door-to-door checking rooms for other suspects. After entering two separate rooms at two different times, officers can be seen on the video coming into contact with a man and a woman who were asleep in their hotel beds, utterly unaware of the active shooter situation.


The scenes released Wednesday were among the latest of 343 police video clips provided to date under a court order in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

 Officials say the police investigation ended without finding the gunman’s motive. But police say weekly releases of material compiled following the attack could last into November.

 A final FBI report is expected by year-end.
