Las Vegas police release more documents from massacre investigation

Vegas Strip shooting witnesses described chaos compassion

Vegas Strip shooting witnesses described chaos compassion

As she crouched down, a massive spraying of bullets rained down and the unidentified woman thought the gunfire was coming from helicopters above.

The statements were released Wednesday after a judge, siding with media organizations seeking records from the shooting and its aftermath, ordered the Las Vegas police to make public video footage and documents.

The woman said once when she was cleaning his room, Paddock gave her an uneasy feeling. Then, hearing a moment of quiet, she chose to make a run for it.

One man described taking cover to the right of the stage once he and others heard gunshots.

One woman told police she refused to leave her lifeless friend, whose eyes were still and lips turned blue, until a group of men picked her off the ground and guided her to a fence.

A couple of seconds later, um, I fell to the ground and I couldn't feel my arm.

Her friends got her to a street where a limousine driver took them to a hospital where she remembered people in hallways on stretchers and hospital staff unable to take names of patients because there were so many of them.

They described the experiences of witnesses and victims on 1 October a year ago, when Stephen Paddock opened fire from the 32nd floor of a hotel, killing 58 people and injuring more than 800.

Earlier this month, the department released video footage of officers entering the room in which the shooter, Stephen Paddock, had barricaded himself.

One victim said the shooting "sounded to me as if there were helicopters directly above us shooting down at us".

Media outlets sued to obtain videos, 911 recordings, evidence logs and interview reports to shed light on the response by public agencies, emergency workers and hotel officials during and after the shooting. The department has not provided all the materials it collected.

Zuckerberg agrees to European parliament meeting
While Nix has testified once to the committee, lawmakers want him to give further evidence - a request he had previously declined. But the decision to hold the meeting with the European Parliament behind closed doors has angered others.

A man was fatally shot Monday night while he was walking through a parking lot at an apartment complex, according to North Las Vegas Police.

The records were released Wednesday by the Las Vegas Metro Police Department.

They had also said the investigation into the shooting is not finished and the information could further traumatise the community.

Detectives are still trying to establish the motive for Paddock's attack.

In the days that followed the shooting, authorities found dozens more guns and thousands of rounds of ammunition at two houses belonging to Paddock in Nevada.

The Wynn Resorts host, identified only by the initials K.M., said he served Paddock for six years until August 2017.

"He keep on staring at me", the housekeeper said, reporting that Paddock was on his computer at the time but that she did not see the screen.

She has not been charged with a crime.

An Arizona man faces a federal charge alleging that he provided illegal armor-piercing ammunition that authorities found in Paddock's hotel suite.

Douglas Haig has pleaded not guilty.
