Police bodycam footage has been released from inside the casino where Stephen Paddock killed 58 people and injured hundreds more in the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
The footage reveals the chaos and confusion Las Vegas police encountered as they entered first the casino at Mandalay Bay and then Paddock's heavily fortified hotel room.
"We're trying to see where the shots are coming from," an officer said as police frantically search out the source of the bullets that turned the Route 91 Harvest Festival into a bloodbath on Oct.1.
When police first arrived inside the casino, patrons continued to gamble unawares until they were told of the horror that was unfolding outside.
"You guys need to evacuate the whole casino — you need to get everybody out of here," police could be heard saying.
The video was recorded by cameras on two K-9 officers as they searched the massive hotel's corridors in a bid to stop the carnage.
But before he was found, Paddock's rampage would come to an end.
When cops finally zeroed in on the killer and made their way into room 32135, they found Paddock dead from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head.
As the footage shows, they also found the many firearms and ominous surveillance equipment that Paddock had brought into his sniper's nest leading up to the horrified mass killing he perpetrated.
What's missing from the footage is any indication of Paddock's motive for killing and maiming so many complete strangers.
"What is seen on those videos no way changes the facts," Sheriff Joe Lombardo has told reporters eager to tell the public what was at the root of such and extreme act.
Meanwhile, the newly released videos represent only sample of hundreds of hours of bodycam recordings and police say the investigation remains ongoing.
