Footage of Las Vegas shooter inside Mandalay Bay finally goes public, and it’s chilling

After months of waiting, surveillance footage of Las Vegas gunman Stephen Paddock went public Thursday.

MGN resorts provided the New York Times with the video, which captured seven days of Paddock’s routine activities as he prepared to murder 58 people from his suite on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel.

The footage showed bellhops helping Paddock bring bag after bag up to his hotel room over the course of seven days. On several occasions, he was seen leaving to return to his home in Mesquite, Nev., only to return with more firearms and ammunition.

On other occasions, Paddock enjoyed the hotel’s amenities, playing video poker in casino, buying souvenirs at the gift shop, dining at restaurants, and conversing with staff.

Paddock appeared to be working alone, without the help of any accomplices.

MGM Resorts issued a statement regarding the footage, KTNV reported.

“In the interest of providing greater context around Stephen Paddock’s actions in the days leading up to October 1, MGM Resorts has released these security videos and images. As the security footage demonstrates, Stephen Paddock gave no indication of what he planned to do and his interactions with staff and overall behavior were all normal.

“MGM and Mandalay Bay could not reasonably foresee that a long-time guest with no known history of threats or violence and behaving in a manner that appeared outwardly normal, would carry out such an inexplicably evil, violent and deadly act.

“Our focus continues to be on supporting victims and their families, our guests and employees, and cooperating with law enforcement with their ongoing investigation.”

The massacre, in which Paddock targeted the outdoor Route 91 Harvest country music festival, has been called the worst mass shooting in American history.

In addition to the 58 dead, 851 were injured before the 64-year-old Paddock killed himself with a shot to the head.
