A Las Vegas police officer getting shot in the arm, a SWAT team making entry to the 32nd floor of Mandalay Bay, and an officer trying to keep everyone calm as a few dozen gunshot victims desperately wait for ambulances.

Las Vegas police released another batch of police body camera videos and 9-1-1 calls from the mass shooting at the Route 91 festival on Oct. 1, 2017 that left 58 people dead and around 800 injured. Eightteen videos and 35 audio tapes were released.

The videos show officers on the perimeter of the concert dealing with the wounded, checking stairwells and hotel rooms in Mandalay Bay, officers can also be seen checking the Monorail, another video shows officers and SWAT arriving at the hotel and on the 32nd floor where shooter Stephen Paddock’s suite was located.

The most dramatic video involves an officer arriving as the shooting is occurring. He meets with other officers parked on Las Vegas Boulevard across from Mandalay Bay and immediately takes cover with the officers behind their patrol cars.

“You see those flashes,” yells one officer.

Another officer calls for Las Vegas Boulevard to be closed to traffic. The gunfire in the background is intense and an officer yells out, “I’m down, I got shot.”

The officer wearing the body camera runs to the wounded officer’s aid and makes a radio call.

“We got an officer shot.”

The officer shot was Brady Cook who was wounded in his right arm. The unidentified officer helped him — under a barrage of gunfire — to the safety of a patrol car where he drove him to a hospital.
