Authorities from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department shared footage captured on the body cameras worn by some of their officers as they responded to the mass shooting that occurred on Sunday, which took the lives of 59 and injured more than 500.
Undersheriff Kevin McMahill shared a video at a press briefing Tuesday evening to provide the latest updates on the investigation.
"You'll see that the officers were dealing with some uncooperative citizens at times but at all times they were trying to locate the source of the gunfire as well as evacuate those citizens that were in the line of fire," he said prior to showing the video. "I think the video will speak for itself."
"That wall faces Mandalay Bay, and they are hunkered down behind that wall after [the] initial volley of shots," McMahill said as the video started playing.
After a few more gunshots broke out, officers were heard telling others to get down. McMahill said at that point it was unclear where the gunshots were coming from.
McMahill pointed out a section of the video where a police officer had been shot and where a police officer was standing over a woman.
