Police report for Las Vegas shooting

Police report for Las Vegas shooting

Police in Las Vegas plan to make public witness statements and officer reports about last year's mass shooting that killed 58 people and injured hundreds in what was the deadliest event of its kind in modern USA history.

Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have said they don't know a motive for the attack, but believe Paddock acted alone and the attack had no link to worldwide terrorism.

The release, totaling over 1,200 pages, came after a lawsuit for public records by the AP and other media organizations, despite resistance by law enforcement officials.

The accounts did not provide a motive for the attack, which police have said they have not discovered. He reportedly said that Paddock had ranted against the government, saying he believed the government intended on confiscating guns from American citizens.

The man and his friends ran again until he couldn't go on.

The man said he met with Paddock outside a Las Vegas sporting goods store after posting an online ad to sell schematics to convert semi-automatic guns to fire automatically.

"Sometimes sacrifices have to be made". She said she overheard a conversation between the man she believes was Paddock and another man, and that Paddock was speaking angrily about FBI-involved standoffs in Waco, Texas, and at Ruby Ridge in the 1990s.

Authorities do not know why on October 1 Stephen Paddock fired indiscriminately from a hotel room at 22,000 concertgoers attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival.

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.

Next Star Wars Spinoff Announced
There would have been plenty of room in the official Star Wars canon for more Lando stories, likely set after the events of Solo . So you can bet Lucasfilm is looking to diversify their roster of lead characters by letting Lando Calrissian lead the way.

A stagehand made a run for his pickup truck when he was suddenly surrounded by people begging for a ride away from the scene.

"Then on the third round of shots is when I got, I got hit running, right in the back", he told an investigator.

"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 had to jump over the dead body of a security guard on her way before crawling under a stage only a few feet high.

In a press conference following the court's decision, Clark County Sheriff Joseph Lombardo said that authorities would be releasing the information on a rolling basis for at least several months. He also apologized to the public for the release of information that he said would "further traumatize a wounded community".

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the housekeeper also said she thought it was unusual that he had so much luggage in his room.

Sgt. Jeff Clark, a department spokesman, said authorities would not comment about the documents released Wednesday.

Sisolak said he hadn't heard of the jailhouse account and he could not say whether it was credible.

Earlier this month, the Nevada Supreme Court ordered the department to release body body camera footage taken by two officers who entered the 32nd floor hotel suite where shooter Stephen Paddock opened fire on a country music festival below before killing himself.

The documents - 911 recordings, evidence logs, multiple witness statements and police officer reports - were released after media outlets sued to obtain them. The department has not provided all the materials it collected.
