Video shows Vegas cops storming into Stephen Paddock's hotel room

Las Vegas police released body cam video Wednesday showing the moments officers stormed into shooter Stephen Paddock's Mandalay Bay suite in October.

One clip shows officers decked in bullet proof vests entering the dark room after Paddock fired hundreds of bullets that killed 58 people at a country music festival on Oct. 1.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said Tuesday the first officer, Levi Hancock, to go into Paddock's room didn't activate his bodycam. It's unclear why Hancock didn't have his bodycam on.

"What is seen on those videos in no way changes the facts that we were able to clarify for you shortly after the crime,” Lombardo said at a press conference.

Police said some clips show Sgt. Joshua Bitsko and David Newton during the operation, according to the Las-Vegas Journal Review.
