Police release more records from Las Vegas shooting

Updated July 11, 2018 - 7:09 pm

New video and audio files released Wednesday from the Route 91 Harvest festival shooting mostly highlighted peripheral moments from the massive police response.

The release included three clips of aerial surveillance footage, seven body camera files and eight collections of emergency radio transmissions from the Oct. 1 shooting, which left 58 dead and hundreds more injured.

It marked the 10th court-ordered release of Metropolitan Police Department records from the mass shooting since early May.

The roughly 90 minutes of aerial footage did not include timestamps. It opens with close-ups of windows at Mandalay Bay, followed by the examination of surrounding parking lots and rooftops.

The aerial footage also includes clips of people running across the airfield at McCarran International Airport. Police have said fleeing concertgoers managed to breach an airport perimeter fence while seeking safety.

Three radio transmissions released Wednesday warned of a possible second suspect, shooter Stephen Paddock’s girlfriend, Marilou Danley — once at about 1:37 a.m. on Oct. 2 ; again at 1:47 a.m.; and again at 1:59 a.m.

Danley was in the Philippines on the night of the shooting, but first responders believed at the time that she could be driving a maroon 2017 Hyundai Tucson with Nevada plates and described her as “armed and dangerous.”

It turned out to be a false alarm, one of many that magnified the chaos on Oct. 1.

One body camera clip shows an apparently confused elderly man, wearing suspenders and holding a pipe, who was placed in handcuffs and detained on Koval Lane. Someone had identified him as suspicious because he reportedly carried two black duffel bags into his RV shortly after the shooting.

The false report has appeared in many Metro records released to date.

“I haven’t done anything,” the man says as he’s hauled over to the back of a firetruck for questioning.

Near the man was a small, white dog on a leash, which he asked officers to place in one of his handcuffed hands so the animal wouldn’t run off.

Different body camera footage shows two officers speeding toward Mandalay Bay, sirens blaring. Another shows a Metro sergeant apparently suffering a medical episode on the resort’s casino floor shortly after police breached the gunman’s 32nd-floor suite.

Last week, Metro released 34 audio clips of emergency radio traffic and three body camera videos. More records are expected next week.
