Police release final records of Las Vegas mass shooting

Local News

The disbursement of 1 October evidence has come to an end. Metro Police released the final batch of documents Wednesday.

The 2017 Las Vegas Strip massacre left 58 people dead and hundreds of others injured during a country music festival.

The final release includes 11 PDF files which have hundreds of pages of detail follow-up investigations in the weeks after the mass shooting.

Detectives and CSI were collecting evidence from a number of locations including the concert grounds, Mandalay Bay, and local hospitals.

In the aftermath of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history, Metro was tasked with collecting every piece of evidence they could find. All of which had to be documented.

One report details the horrific scene at the Route 91 Festival where they found more than 30 bodies and an enormous amount of forensic evidence.

Another report goes into great detail about the evidence found inside the gunman’s suite on the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay, as well as the damage.

Among the hundreds of items collected were weapons, a passport and an Amazon box addressed to Douglas Haig. He’s the Arizona man who is accused of illegally making ammunition that he sold to the shooter.

Previously, Metro has released body camera footage that shows the moments before SWAT enters his room.

CSI went to every hospital to document the injuries of the victims, including those who didn’t survive.

One report names Officer Brady Cook who was shot in the arm. It was his second day on the job. He was taken to the hospital by a fellow officer who had his body camera rolling.

Meanwhile, one report says an investigator visited the coroner’s office to photograph the tag on the gunman’s body.

Both Metro and the FBI have concluded their investigation into the mass shooting without being able to find a motive.

Metro released the first batch of evidence last May after a number of news outlets sued the police department.
