The video released on Wednesday, which lasts over two hours, represents a sample of hundreds of hours of body-camera recordings. The videos from two officers take you inside the killer's hotel suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay about an hour after the October 1 massacre ended. Officers say he committed suicide before they reached the adjoining rooms.
Seconds later, the officer with the camera said, "OK, we got one suspect down, 419 inside, this is clear".
The camera captures a room with semiautomatic rifles strewn about on the floor and on a tub. You see them entering and clearing each room, calling out "rifle, rifle, rifle", as they come upon the dozens of weapons gunman Stephen Paddock had amassed.
Police have pored through thousands of hours of body cam footage from officers who responded to the shooting.
"There's a whole suitcase full of loaded AK mag [azine] s", another says.
"I see a guy switching guns, not reloading", another officer is heard saying in the video as the team examines Paddock's room. Officers are heard examining documents found in the room and trying to make sense of his massacre. As the driver rushes to the scene, police radio traffic in the background describes the unfolding carnage. As they approach his suite from a stairwell, another officer yells out, "Breach! If anyone can advise, is it coming from Mandalay?"
