A Las Vegas police officer "accidentally" fired his gun in the Mandalay Bay suite where mass shooter Stephen Paddock fired into a crowd at a music festival on Oct. 1.

This is according to the sheriff for Las Vegas. He says that the officer was not shooting at anything and it did not happen in the same area where Paddock's body was discovered.

The sheriff also said that the 32nd floor where the suite is located did not have security cameras facing the gunman's suite or the stairwell.

The sheriff spoke to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

58 people were killed and hundreds more were injured during the shooting on Oct. 1. The shooter's motive is still unknown and the investigation is ongoing.
