WARNING: Some viewers could find the above video disturbing to watch.
UPDATE MAY 15: Las Vegas police will release the second installment of the 1 October shooting documents on May 16. This release will consist of witness statements and officer reports that were completed during the investigation.
UPDATE MAY 3: We showed part of the video to a retired investigator. He says from what he saw in the video, the crews who stormed gunman Stephen Paddock's room handled a tense situation calmly and professionally.
Retired investigator Doug Poppa says as crews moved in, police were still getting multiple conflicting reports about where shots were coming from.
"When they kicked that door, they didn't know if they were gonna be facing one guy or 20 guys with assault weapons and they would have been dead, so they went in, they did what they had to do," he says.
Poppa says his only criticism after watching the video was that he wants to know why it took so long for crews to breach the hotel suite.
ORIGINAL: The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has released some of the video that was captured on Oct. 1 when police officers broke into the suite being used by mass shooter Stephen Paddock.
Sheriff Joe Lombardo told the public on Tuesday that the department would release the video. Lombardo emphasized that the release of the video and other records would most likely retraumatize survivors and family members and that it would also put stress, both emotional and financial, on the department.
First 10 minutes of video is largely tactical movement and communication through the 31st up to 32nd floor. https://t.co/hT58I0nS7N
Police lawyers revealed on Tuesday that the first officer who entered Paddock's room did not activate his body cam. According to department policy, officers are required to activate their cameras during calls that result in interaction with citizen and/or involves a search.
