Agencies to unveil plan for retrieving Las Vegas shooting items

Updated October 7, 2017 - 9:05 pm

Officials on Sunday are expected to announce the process for Route 91 Harvest Festival concertgoers to retrieve their abandoned property.

Clark County spokesman Erik Pappa said authorities will hold a news conference at 10 a.m. Sunday at the Las Vegas Convention Center parking lot near Las Vegas and Elvis Presley boulevards. Officials from the Clark County Fire Department, the Metropolitan Police Department and the FBI are expected to attend the conference.

FBI agents were seen Saturday morning hauling personal effects, including baby strollers, lawn chairs, backpacks and purses onto dollies and into the back of a white truck.

Law enforcement officers had fanned out across the crime scene throughout the week, stacking belongings of concertgoers into more than a dozen large piles.

Personal items had remained at the venue grounds through most of the week as authorities investigated the deadly Oct. 1 shooting, which left 58 dead and 489 injured.

An estimated 22,000 people were attending the festival when gunman Stephen Paddock opened fire from his high-rise hotel suite at Mandalay Bay.
