Police report for Las Vegas shooting

Police report for Las Vegas shooting

The gunman who murdered 58 people in Las Vegas previous year ranted about conspiracy theories and gun control weeks before he carried out America's deadliest mass shooting, witnesses told police.

An unidentified woman said in a handwritten statement that she believed she may have encountered Paddock at a Las Vegas restaurant three days before the massacre.

Officers were dispatched about 11:30 p.m. Monday to the 3300 block of Civic Center Drive, where they found a 24-year-old man suffering from an apparent gunshot wound, police said. One man said he was "very nervous and fearful that I couldn't find my family" and did not know if they had been injured.

Las Vegas police two weeks ago made public video from two officers' body cameras showing police blasting through the door of the hotel suite where Paddock is seen motionless on his back with a pool of blood staining the carpet near his head and a cache of assault-style weapons strewn about.

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.

The documents released Wednesday detailed terror, confusion and compassion among people helping the wounded after gunfire rained from a 32nd floor hotel room on a crowd of 22,000 people attending the Route 91 Harvest Festival concert on the Las Vegas Strip. 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.

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

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.

Department lawyers who opposed releasing the information called the public records request costly and time-consuming, and said it could disclose investigative techniques.

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.

Sgt. Jeff Clark, a department spokesman, said there would be no comment about the documents released Wednesday. Federal Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Sandra Breault in Las Vegas also declined to comment.

Lombardo said it appeared Paddock was on a gambling losing streak, and police reported finding just $273 in cash in his hotel room.

Detectives are still trying to establish the motive for Paddock's attack. Documents say about 100 pounds (45.4 kilograms) of explosive material was found in his vehicle parked at the Mandalay Bay resort.

Another man told police he had been with a woman who was shot, saying: Then it dawns on me.

She has not been charged with a crime.

Douglas Haig has pleaded not guilty.
