Body Camera Footage From Police Officers Responding to Las Vegas Shooting

Body Camera Footage From Police Officers Responding to Las Vegas Shooting”

Sheriff Joe Lombardo of Las Vegas Police confirmed at a news conference that the shooter had fired from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay.

The video was played at a news conference on Tuesday as work continues to try to establish a motive for the horrific attack, which has become the deadliest shooting in USA history.

This list will be updated as more victims from the Las Vegas shooting are revealed.

Victims of crime who have been injured or have been threatened with injury may be eligible for help, the board says.

The Route 91 Harvest Festival, a three-day country music concert, kicks off at the Las Vegas Village, a venue across the Strip from the Luxor hotel and the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino.

ABC News said that some of the reports centre around "suspicious activity", but many were "currency transaction reports" which casinos must file with the Treasury Department whenever someone withdraws or deposits more than $10,000 in cash. The gunman, identified as Stephen Craig Paddock, a 64- year-old retired accountant from Mesquite, Nevada, killed himself before officers stormed Room 135 in the gold-colored glass skyscraper. Police say Paddock also set up surveillance cameras in the hallway outside of his hotel room.

No one knows why Paddock gunned them down.

Police released dramatic body camera footage from officers that captures the chaos as Stephen Paddock carried out America's worst mass shooting.

Investigators believe at least one of the guns functioned as if it were fully automatic, and they are now trying to determine if he modified it or other weapons to be capable of spitting out a high volume of fire just by holding down the trigger, people familiar with the case said. "He never said anything to me or took any action that I was aware of that I understood in any way to be a warning that something frightful like this was going to happen", she said in a statement read by her lawyer.

He reportedly shared his house there with Marilou Danley.

Sheriff Joe Lombardo described him as a "lone wolf", adding: 'I can't get into the mind of a psychopath at this point'. He also may have scouted out the location, renting a room at the Ogden, a nearby hotel, during the Life is attractive festival a week earlier, Lombardo said.

Several pounds of ammonium nitrate, a chemical used to make explosives, were also discovered in the 64-year-old's vehicle.

Questions are still being asked about how he legally obtained the arsenal of 23 guns found in his hotel room and another 19 discovered at his home address.
