LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police body-camera videos from the night of the mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip show the chaos and confusion officers faced as waves of wounded and fleeing concert-goers sought help.
The material released Wednesday is the seventh batch of public records selected by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and released without comment since May 30 under court order in a lawsuit from media organizations, including The Associated Press.
One video from an officer near the site of the country music festival shows the wounded and others piled into the beds of pickup trucks. The officer directs the truck to a trauma center and then takes more injured people to the hospital in the back of his own police cruiser.
Another video shows an officer entering the venue as people flee and encountering those with gunshot wounds.
