By ABC News. Police have released intense bodycam footage from the deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas last October that shows first-responders struggling to dodge bullets and shield victims with little understanding of where the gunfire was coming from.
The Las Vegas Metro Police Department on Wednesday released more than two dozen video files with hours of officer bodycam footage and about 500 recordings of phone calls from the night of Oct. 1, when suspected shooter Stephen Paddock unleashed a hail of bullets on a crowd of concertgoers.
“There’s a lot of casualties right in the middle of the field,” one officer yelled.
“It’s coming from the Mandalay Bay,” another office screamed. “Get behind the police car … stay down!”
The videos captured the earliest moments of what became the worst mass shooting in U.S. history — 58 people died and more than 800 suffered injuries. (Read more from “New Chilling Bodycam Footage Released From Vegas Shooting” HERE)
