was holding her head (c^spihej and looked at me and asked for help. The female'd guhshot ^ound was

my weapon and ran up the stairs in the VIP tent because! knew there was another set of stairs on the south 
side. 1 was telling people to get down as 1 rap. After I went down the south set of stairs, 1 realized that there 
was not an exit so I ran along the perimeter fence northbound to reach gate 2,1 exited through the gate and 
got behind a 4^5 foot brick wail that runs parallel with Las Vegas Blvd. Then myself arid anbther officer ran 
south along the wall. At this time, it still sounded like the shooter was close and f was trying to get to the threat

that rang out^ a little after 2200 hours, we were standirig on the right side of the stage (if facing) near the VIP 

When the first volley of shots rang out we ail initially thought that it was a malfunction with the speakers, I 
remember the confusion among the four of us and evetyone else around us, Thdre Vyere a small group of 
peppie that b^an running, but we Stood still thlriking that it wds jOst the sfieakerS having issues^ then we 
heard the second set of volleys start ahd that’s when We knew that it Wasn't the speakers, the Oouncia of the 
rounds just continually fihng is something i’H never forget, Thai’s when the chaos bepah. 

People; began screaming and running in every which direction^ At this point we could at least tell that the shots 
were cCmihg from the west, in the direction of the Mandalay Bay, We did not Know how many sHootOrs there 
were or if they were on foot in the venue. We did know that we needed to find some sort pf cover and start 
moving in a direction away from the gdnfirev Jesse and my thoughts were: to get my brother ahd his girifilehcj 
away and to safety and then try and stay behind the rriost covdr we could find. From where we were standing 
listening to the music we ran northwest to a cerhent wail that was a barrier between Las Vegds Blvd and the 
venue. We knew this was going to be our best choice of cover at this time, Little dip we know at that time that 
the suspect was shooting from the 32™^ floor of the Mandalay Bay. 

There were people everywhere yelling, running, and froaen in time, we started moving northwest towards 
Reno it was just continual gunfire that seeiridd to last forever. As we were running yye tried to hold cover as 
best as we could. 1 remember it being very dark and hard to See, there were people just ^a^ing put and not 
moving. I remember yelling at these people that weren’t moving that this was gunfire and that they needed to 
move and move now because they were sitting ducks, 1 still did not know if thdre were shooters on the move or 
in the venue, We did dur best to get people tp rhove to We^. 

At this ppint, i hadn’t come into contact with any victims yet, but as 1 was running I noticed an cider female 
laying on! the ground, 1 stopped to help her get up. This was the start of the reality of what was going on, 1 don't

remember if she was shot or hurt, but rny only 0 oal was to get her up and get her to safety. People were 
running around her almost trampling her. The female Was just frozen on the ground and I was having difficulty 
getting Her up. The fear in her voice made me realize that i needed to be level headed and he a crutch for the 
people around me that were in shock and needed assistance getting to safety* 

After I got the unkno\wn female up, off the. ground 1 came into contact.with my first shooting victim. At this time 1 
had lost JessO, my brother, and his girlfriend, but 1 Knew they werO headed to safety. My first shooting Victim 
, was an unknown male in his early $ 0 ’s. He was shot, 1 believe, in the right lower leg hear his oatf. 1 remember 
the fear in His wife/girJfriend's voice; she was screaming that h0‘d been shot, t identified myself as a poiice 
officer and pararhedic. i asked him where he was. shot and hc told me his ,ieg. Pue to being, off duty vvith ho,

safety, At that moment it seerned like rriofe and more people were approaching with diftereht injuries, 1 put the 
man^s wife’s hand on his injuries and told her to hold pressure, l made contact with ah: unknown on duty 
LVMPD officer that was also helping injured citizens to see if there were any further urates on the situation;

. An unkripwn; citizen, brought a pick-up truck to where we, were and We .loaded a grpup of injured people in the 
back to take them to hiedicai; i remember specifically ,a, male ,With a hOad, wound of some sort ahd another . 
male with dn arm ihjury, I sprawled myself over bptb victirhs and did my best to ,hold pres^^

tried my best in comforting him and keeping him calm. I assistedll^Kri Qottjng (V access on^jj(||ehd any 
other care he needed. 

When we arrived at UMG it was pure cHaos; UMO staff and EMS were running i^round helping multiple patients 
all at one time. There was blopd, equiprne nj, ari d plothing everywhere. It seemed like every second a new 
person was coming in. l assisted ih getting|||||moved hospital gurney. Since there were so many 

patients and not eno ugh sta ff due to having to Cad extra h elp 1 s tayed at UMC to assistwith anything that they 
heeded. I stayed withU^ until he was taken to surgery, had critical injuries and needed a central line 
ASAP, (A central line is a targe catheter that is placed into a large vein such as In the neck, chest, groin or 
veins in the arms). There was no one else to help the physician so 1 assisted him. l have never assisted or 
seen one done in person. Once|||jj||was rushed to sutgety, no less than a minute iafer 1 was helping the 
UMC medical staff with another victim. From here on put the injuries seemed to get worse, l continued to move 
from gurney to gurney rendering whatever treatment needed to be done- Whether it was GP'R, assisting in ,, , 
intubations, iVs, etc. The staff was more than generous in letting me assist, helping me clean up due to having 
blood on my body and clothes, and getting me clean scrubs to change into as i was still dressed in the shorts 
and tank top l wore to the concert. I continued to help render.aid until about 0330, hours When things started to 
slow down and enough staff had shown up to fake over, At this point I Was physically and mentally exhausted. 

While at the hospital 1 finally made contact vyith Jesse arret he assured me that he was safe along with my

gunfire was I Immediatety shoved my fiance and dur,friend to the ground and laid, on top of them in an attempt to 
shield them. I told, them as soon as it stops (referring to the gunfire) to get up and that we oan't stay here. 

As the shots continued to be fired l looked up and scanned around the venue to try and spot where the shooter was. 
Directly behind us l sa\v a femaie who was bleeding from the face and nepk area and. appeared to be suffering from 
a gunshot wound. There was a ton of cdmmotion going .on during this time and the female. ^vas lying on the ground 
and being trampled, on by people attempting to escape the area. I did my best to cover the female. Another male 
who was near us picked the female up and began to carry her east through the venue. 

At this point there was two rounds of gunfire that had went off in.very close, time frames. After theaeoohd round of 
gunfire went off 1 lifted my fiance and friend up and began to push them east towards the Cpca-Cola suites,. As we 
were moving 1 remained hypched over both of them doing my best to cover them .v/hlle atso keeping an eye out for 
any possible shooters. At this time 1 thought there were multiple shooters inside of the venue.! rerriember hearing 
multiple gunshots going off at what sounded, like the same ,tinie. in hindsight I 'reatize i was ,hearing the initial 
gunshots followed by the bullets striking the metal.Cpca-ppta,suites. , . 

, As we gpl to the east side of the Coca-Cola suites another round Of gunfire erupted this time I oOuld hear the 
bullets Mriking near us and hitting the metai .obj^ts we were sending behind. ,^tiil.thinking there was mUltipie . 
shooters inside of the veriue 1 thought We Were getting close to whOre ohe. of the shootdrs w^s. D,ub to, there being, 
so many people running,and shoving peop^ there was noWhere. for us,tp,go, ,1 again laid on top of my fiance and our 
friend in an attempt to shield them from gunfire.:i told them that if i got hit to stay urider me.and do not move. As 1 
was lying on fr)p of them people were tramplirig over top of us trying to escape the area, i believe at this point) 
received an injury to my right knee, I did not notice my knee Was injured until later that everjinfr,so.! am unable to pin 
point when the injury actually occurred. 

Once the guhflre stopped again l looked around and did not see any shooters. I quickly got everyone up and we 
began to move north along the east aid® of the OoCa-Cotasuites. We flnatly found an exit on Giles street and began 
to run east bourid where we had to crawl through a whole in a fence which led into a dirt parking lot. 

As we were running I spotted a white female who was sitting on the ground and leaning on a white sUv. The female 
was suffering from multiple gunshot wounds to her cheSt: 1 quickly assessed and realized that.she was deceased. 
There was still gunfire going off at this time so 1 toid the people who were standing around the ,victim to run. 

We continued running east bound through the parking lot when a truck drove by us. As it slowed down t assisted my 
fiance and our friend into the tailgate of the truck and! jumped in behind them. 

Working in Convention Center Area Command 1 knew the area and Knew routes that would lead u$ out of the area, 



Event UV171Q01003ai9 

As we were driving I was giving the truck driver directipns. I noticed a large group of people were Oinning east , 
towards an airport hangar which,! knew led to a dead end v\^here they would be cornered with nowhere to go, (told 
the driver to drive towards the group of ,people and I began yeiiing at everyone to run back westbound towards 
Haven I then directed people to, run southbound on Haven Knowlrtg that would lead people away from the dead 

t directed the truck driver south on Haven and had him drive through a parking lot and oyer,,a dirt hill which led us , 
out onto Las Vegas Blvd. At,this point I did not .hear anymore gunfire going off I directed, the driver to South Central 
Area Command so that I could possibly grab sorhe gear and go,back to assist, however! cou|d, .1 rhet up with a 
Sergeant who was at the entrance gate to SCAp and he informed me thatthbre was; reports the shooting was 
coming from Mandalay Bay, The Sergeant ,then said there was reports of active s.hooters ,all Over the strip. At this 
, point I realised I needed to get my fiance out of the area because it was still unsafe, 

I directed the driver to the 1-15 entrance near the Town Square Malt l Once we entered the freeway northbound on 
, the hl5 wp hit, traffic thpt was at ,a .dead stop,... . 

While in traffic) saw numerous SWAT; unmarked, and medical vehicles attemptihg to get through traffic ih the 
emergency lane. Traffic was biocKihg all of the emergency vehicles from getting ,through, I immediateiyjumped out 
of the tailgate and ran to the lead emergency vehicle who was a Metro officer ahd showed him my badge, I told him 
to foildw me as I began northbourid, on thefreeway. 

As.,! was running porthbound 1 was identifyirig rhyself ,0® a police .ojfficertp every yehiclO that was blocking the 
emergency lane, i directed tmffic and moved vehicies as needed enough to get ail of the emergency vehicles 
through traffic, I ran northbound, on the freeway doing this for approximately 2 miles until the emergency vehicles 
were able to get through traffic. On the way back to the truck I noticed vehicles again had begun blocking the 
emergency lane. Knowing more emergency vehicles would be coming I held up my badge every 100 yards or so 
and yelled for help, I asked for numerous citizens to help:me and e)(plaihed I needed them to spread out along, the 
emergency lane and keep vehicles from blocking the lane, 

1 had a few hundred citizens that without hesitation assisted me and spread out along 2 miles of the freeway and 
Kept it open tor emergency vehicles. Without those citizens help it would have beeri a much longer delay in getting 
emergency personnel to the scene. 

While making my way back to the truck my fiancb was in 1 spotted another truck with numerous people in the 
taitgate, I ran over to check on them and noticed the entire tailgate was filled with blood* ,There was a person who 
had multiple gunshot wounds lying in the truck, 1 attempted to give aid until an ambulance finally made it through 
traffic to the truck along with an NHP Officer, The person did not survive. 



EvsRt #! LLV17100l003ai$ 

Knowing the amhulano^ would be needed tor victims who were stilt alive t escorted the ambulance southbound on 
the 1-1S and got them through traffic back Onto Las Vegas Blvd, 

For approximately 30 minutes I remained on the frOeway assisting tn getting emergency vehicles through traffic until 
they stopped coming, At that point we found our way out of the area where we were picked up. by femity*) finally 
made it out of the area around 0330-0400 hours,. 

That was the extent of my involvement for that night. ,l returned to work the following shift at GOAC to assist in

Mandalay Bay active shooter event on io/1/?b;i 7 at 2215 hrs, i was off duty when I received a text message 
from my supervisor, Sgt, Wiggins stating that there was an active shooter at the Manddtay Bay, and that I, 
along with the entire SVVAT team was to respond:! drove my iinmari^d rrietro vehicle code 3; logging on as 1

locations, and how many locations they had attackOd/Bather than pulling up to Mandalay Say directly, and in 
to an ambush, a supervisor got on the SWAT 1 radio channel, drid instrucf^ ail SWAT personnel to meet at 
SbAC to stage and deploy from there* 

Once artivedi the assistant team leader, syvAT Officer K. Stephens, told me he needed me tg deploy as a 
sniper, so ( grabbed my sniper gear, to include my LaBue >308 semi-automatic shipdr rifle, l then linked up with 
SWAT Officer C* Mikkeison, and:drove in his truck to Mandalay Bay, We arrived at the 4 season's entrance, 
and immediately encountered;40 plus civilians taking cover and asking fpr help- f^ikkelsdn and I escorted the 
crown to lV Biyd and directed them south towards the patrol perimeter, 

Mikkeison and I then entered the 4 season's entrance Id Mandalay Say, We ware able to lopate an elevator, 
and took it to the 35*^ floor, the lowest floor that codld get to on that elevator. We had heard radio traffic that 
the shooter Was on the 32™* floor, and in a suite, where he was shooting at the Bdute 91 harvest festival 
concert. Once pn the 35“' floor, we found stairs and took those down to the 32^ floor. We entered the haiiway, 
and immediately to our left, found a suite at the end of the hallway. With a partially open dbor. We didn’t know if 
this was the suite the shooter was in, so we entered and cleared the suite, not finding anypne inside. Mikkeison 
and I then made pur way to the center rotunda of the 32^^ floor, and contacted seyaral officers, and Mandalay 
Bay employees. They directed us towards the suspect's suite* Looking down the wing of the suspect’s suite, 
we could see at the end of the hallway, the double doors to the suite. The left door as you look at It had do;!:ens 
of bullet holes in it We also observed that several patrol and plain clothes officers, and T SWAT; officer, 

O’Donnell, were halfway down the suspect hall, and taking cover in the hotel room alcoves. Mikkeison and i 
ran down the hallway to those officers, and set up as a sniper tedm, covering the suspect’s doors. 

The officers informed us they had not heard gunfire come from the room for several rolnutps. SWAT Officer 
Hancock then broadcast on the GCAG channel that he wps entering the suspect hallway from the stairwell,

entered, and MikKelson and I were out of play, we were set to be a downed officer rescue team. Once a 
sedond charge went off inside of the suite, and we heard a discharge of a firearm, MiKKelaon and I made the 
decision to enter the suite in case the team ran short of bodies, By the time We entered, the suite; arid 
adjoining room were cleared, and the suspect Was found dead inside; 

The suspect had apparently shot himself in the head with a silver revolver. Inside of the roorvi vye observed at 
least 18 AR style rifles, with various type of accessories on them, hundreds of loaded rifle magazines, cameras 
attached to the backs of the doors, looking through the peep holes, a tube run from the bedroom of the suttd, 
into the suite, monitors, and yarious other: items. There Were huhdreda of spent shell casings on the suite floor, 
a sledgehammer, and two broken out windows, pne in the main suite and the other in the adjoin hotel room; 
The suspect had also run 2 cameras to a room service cart that was sffti in the hallway. Hancock was able to 
ideate the suspect ID and broadcast the info. 1 broadcast oyef the SWAT 1 channel that the suspect had been 
located, that we used explosive charges, arid that the suite was code 4. The suite was then turned over to

On Sunday, Saptembor 30*^ 2017 at approximately 223p hour$, l Detective Robert Harris p#6420 was at my 
residerice preparing to go to slOep for the ©veriing, 1 immediately started receiving mullipte phone calls alerting 
me to an "active shooter’* incident iorprogress oh Las Vega® fouieyard; i immediately grabbed my patrol radio 
and tuned it to *‘SCAC" channel and heard bohtirmation of the news reports. My wife turrieh on the channel 3 
news and began relaying the information she was receiving as well i grabbed clothing along with any tactical 
gear and firearms within my irnmediate access and explained to my with that l had to go. My wife, now visibly 
upspt, begged me not to go, and only after a thorough explanation, told rne to be careful and update her of my 
status when possible/ 

After loading my yehicia with tacticat gear, i contacted my brother, Officer David Garris b#3986, to advise him 
of the situation and determine his location, He explained that he was aware of the incident and was cuirently 
enroute to the CpAG to obtain his marKed patrol vehicle and rally with his squad mates. 1 explained tp him that 
I bad received; ho communication from my sMperviOidn or guidance as to any deployment; plans, it was at thdt 
time that we agreed l would meet with him and report to the command post being established at SGAC, 

Upon arrival at CO AO, my brother and I, along with several of his squad member's began a caravan to ^QAC. 
vyhile dnving southbound on las Vegas boulevard, the SCAC radio channel was apu^z with nOnstop radio 
chatter advising of active shooter sifuatidns at Cae^ar’s palace, the Setlagib .Hbtet and Oasino, alonp witb 
several other strip, resort properties.. 11 was at thi^ moment that we ait realized that we may be dealing with a 
very weli-cobrdina|ed attacK, with an; unknown potential for several suspect’s ahd mass causalities. 1 retail 
hearing a dispatch communicafion advising of threO female suspect’s armed with weapons near a dumpster 
and a male running on tropicana Boulevard, with,,a,firearm., Morhents later ! heard an update advising that 
three women were being taken into custody and several firearms were iopated to the rear of a dumpster in an 
unknown area. Unable to drive southbound on ta$ Vegas Boulevard due to vehicle dnd pedestrian traffic, we 
were forced to take an alternate route onto Koval Lane to E. Reno Ayenue, Giles $treet, and eventually 
emerging back on to las Vegas Boulevard. While passing the east entrance to the ’’Route 91 Hatyesf 
Festival/ we observed several decoasad victirin's lying near the roadway and large groups of people dressed in 
western wear fleeing the scene. White in the area, I contacted a clo^e friend and fellow off-duty metro police 
officer (Shawn Ford p#9063) who l was advised by my wife, was attending thO ’’Route 91 Harvest Festivar* as 
a patron when he became pirined down by gunfire: 1 advisOd Ford via text message, that wb were arriving the

check in at the command post 

One we arrived at the SCAC command post, we v^ere Immediately advised to checK-in with Our names and 
petsonnei numbers. We were fliven the call sign '‘9m93’' and designated as '‘Strike Team 30,'' assigned to 8gt. 
Shawn Romprey p#7p62. Shortly thereafter, wo wore advised to TOve” from the north erid Of the "l^oute 01 
Harvest FestivaP* to Harmon Avenue on Las Vegas SoUleyard, in order to hiairitain a “polipe presence" in the 
area and provide for "quick response" to Ony further crirhinal activityv Vifhile driving northbound oh Las Vegas 
Boulevard, we observed another deceased victim lying in the intersection of tropicaha Avenue and Las Vegas 
Boulevard- It was explained that the victim had been loaded into a wheel barrow and had been brought to the 
intersection to escape the gunfire and locate an ambuiance. We maintained are area of assignment until 
approximately 0630 hours, when we were advised to secure with LL Yes^riia Vafpmi p^6402, in the church 
parking lot located at Giles Street and E, Reno Avenue- 

Upon securing, I text messaged and left a voicemail fOr my Sergeant, Wlike King p#4aa6, advising him of my 
location and on-duty status for the active shooter incident. Approximately thirty minutes later, I received a 
phone call from rhy Ueutenaht, Terry Bernard p#4634, asking where i was,,l explained to him that I responded 
to the "Route 91 Harvest FestiVar active shooter incidentlate Sunday everiing October ii^V He asked if I had 
been vvofl^ing "oyertirne/' 1 stated; that 1 had ndt, I responded because Of the urgency and severity of the

squad was responsible for securing the IVMPD Headquarter Buildings, I abked him if anyone else from our 
detail responded to the active shooter and was told '-a lot of people did," and our resources Were now spread 
pretty tbin. i offered to inimediately dress out and respond to headquarters: I was told to stay by my: phone. 
Approximately rifteen minutes later, 1 received a phorie call from my Sergearit, Mike King p#f4896 (retired). King 
asked me again vvhere I was last riight, I explained the entire Phaln of evepf's again arid was asked specifioaiiy 
who I worked for, what time I responded, where 1 was assigned, What my call sign was, who 1 worked with, 
what time t securPd, and who I secured with- i answered every question thoroughly and was again advised to 
stay near my phone, I repeated my wiNingness to immediately drees out and respond to headquarters butwas 
again told to stay near my phone. Now realizing that niy supervision was not Supportive of my decision to 
respond to the active shooter incident the: evening prior,: J began to immediately d^Oss out iri patroi uniform. 
While getting dressed 1 received a second phone call frorri Sergeant King advising mo to dress put and 
respond immediately to headquarters and be prepared to work until at least 1800 hours that evening (Monday 

Upon arriving at LVMPp Headquarters! Was greeted by my Sergeant who t apologized td for the 
"misunderstanding" last evening. He advised that he vvas happy I eaid that and assigned me to a fixed post 
within building "B" on the first floor That is where 1 stayed until 1900 hours Monday October 1 A/8 Roster 
continued until vvednesday October 4*^ at 18Q0 hours. . 

I believe without hesitation that my setf-initiated or self-dispatched response to the *^80016 91 Harvest Festival 
Active Shooter Incidenf was not only necessary but It Was thp morally and ethically responsible thing to do. To 
be at home, not receiving any guidance or direction, witnessing a mass casualty tricident (infolding in real time, 
and not responding, would have been reprehensible. Eighteen years’ worth of training and experience guided 
my decisions that night and f would respond in kind if presented with the same circumstances again.

My initial thought was that a 415A was occurring somewhere around the Mandalay Bay or thO Luxor and it was 
likely between two parties* We gave radio tragic of the 434's on our channel which was EVENT 5, I crouched 
slightly below the wait and peeked over in an effort to locate where the shots were coming from. I anticipated a 
vehicle may flee the scene and wanted to get a good took and description* Boon after another and even 
longer burst of gunfire was heard, this ts when t realized this was not a typical shooting or any type of "drive by" 
style shooting. It was apparent the fire was coming from e high powered fully automatic fifia 

Dispatch announced the event would be handled on CGAC channel and (began to change my channel (this is 
where the video released to the media begins). After changing my radio channel i began to slowly make my 
way toward the gunfire and the event, $gt. Richmond aiortg with Officers Oterkson and Brpspahan had already 
ran north and taken a position behind patrol cars in the intersection of Mandalay Bay and the Blvd. (This was 
presumed and not known for sure). As I walked south I Immediately Started addressing those inside the event 
Who were looking put to get down and run eastbOund* At this: time i still did not know the gun fire wes directed 

i walked south toward Mandalay Bay Drive and rhade several attempts to locate the gunfire, I Intended to walk 
out toward Mandalay Bay Drive to locate Sgt Richmond and the otherpffiders. I had several officers behind 
me as we walked in a line toward the intersection, While looking bet^eri the erids of the wall (south) and 
chairr. link fence another round of fire be9^n.: I Stepped sputh whdn: l fdlt debpe hitting rhe in thp face and the 
top of my heed; i saw debris |iy over uS and:|eit seve^i pieces of whati esSMtha^^w^^ 
ground hitting me. I could hear the impacts and realized they were right next to us arid that we and the pffiCers 
oh the Blvd were the target 

The gunshots were veiy loud and It was very obvious they yi^re comthg from a high powered rifle, due to the 
duration of shooting I assumed there may be several guns or one large "belt-fed" style rifle. :the rounds 
appeared to be hitting the Weii we were next to and the ground in front Of us. ) immediately directed ail the 
officers behind me to take go back the other direction (as there was no cover to the spUth) and take a position 
of coyer behind the waif *Note, this alley way is outside df the event fencing and runs along Las Vegas Blvd 
across from Mandalay Bdy. 

The gunfire continued for several long bursts and appeared to be going over our heads. There was a large 
group of citizens attempting to flee the area, I addressed therri and ordered them to get down arid against the 
wall. ] continued to order officers and citizens against the wall and to remain behind cover. It was apparent 
that we were being shot at and the suspact(s) had superior weaponry. My rifle and body armor were in the 
back of my patrol car which was on th^ opposite side of the event, I could riot leave the citizens end officers at 
that time to attempt to retrieve It 

I broadcasted radio traffic of our position and situation with the citizens. 

The large group of citizens were eager to flee and wanted to am over the wall to the Luxor parking lot or Ndrth 
down the atiey Way. l ordered them tb stay as l feared they would become a large target for the shooter if they 
ran. Myself and the other officers crouched over, the citizens with our hand guns ,dreWn in Case any suspect(s) 
entered the alley way. The citizens were safer being kept behind the well then to be fleeing as the shoofmg 

I broadcasted radio traffic for officers to avoid arriving east of Mandalay or on the Boulevard at all as thaf s 
where the shots were being fired and I feared officers arriving and being shot at 



evRht #; UV171001003E19 

Radio traffic wrs given that the shots \vere cominp from the Mandalay Bay out of a window. As I looked at the 
building (was not able to locate which window the shots were cdming from. Due the ell gold surface of the 
building it was difficult to distinguish floors and rooms, I knew the distance was well over a few hundred yards 
and that our hand guns were insufficient to return fire at that distance even if we located the shooter. 

While standing over the citizens Officers Clarkson arid Brosnahan ran back into the alley way from the street, 
Clarkson was holding his neck as it was bleeding, Clarkson and Brosnahanjoined us as we took cover and 
assisted in keeping the crowd controlled and calm, I knelt over Clarkson so I could shine my flashlight at his 
wdund, it appeared minor with minimal blood flow and i did not realize the severity of the injury at,the time:: i, 
told him it ms a ^’nicK'' as l was assuming he was hit with the sarhe debris j Was: It waS later teamed a 
fragment had entered his neck, Officer Clarkson continued tb assist Us and waited to get himself help. 

During the time,behind the wall, several off duty officers ffpm other jarlsdictipns. wdre attempting to go out into 
the street and confront the Shooter, the officers appeared, inapnated and were unarmed! I very aggressively 
ordered the off duty officers and Other citizens to stay behind the cdver Some of the officers had to be 
physically held by tVMPp officers not to leave the area and one w^s detained in handcuffs as he was 
attempting to enter the street where buliets were impacting, 

Sgt Andrew,Bauman,.arrived Justhdrth of us, along With officers, Ciarkspni Brosnahan and other LVMPD., ; „ 
pfficem {whom I did pot know}: we dedddd to eVacUatefie Citizens to ah area W cbuld fled from: Cffldafs 
Coordinated the route and Officers fclarkson and Brosnahan decided on groups Of fiyo- the plan was to escort 
a group of five citizens north; down the vyRll until there was an opening in the; event gates: From there they 
could go east into the gate and east out of the event to the very east end: Due the fact there was a large 
break In the wall <opeh chain link fence visible to suspect) all uniformed officers including myself would stand in 
front of the citizens as they ran by it in case vwe took fire again hopefully providing sorhe type Of protection from 
incoming gunfire until the citizens made it across the open area. Sgt, Bauman stood behind a comer of the 
brfck wall with a rifle deployed pointed toward the Mahdatey while we escorted the groups: 

After we had cioarod all the citizens put of the area t noticed Officer Clarkson sitting against the vi^all. I advised 
for his partner Officer Brosnahan and several other officers tp get Clarkson out Of the area by low crawlirig or 
crouching beipw the wat! going north, f ordered over the radio for a designated unit to be at the North end for 
transport for the injured officer: The team of officers took Clarkson and moved out, I walked with them until 
they were out of the line of fire and headed toward safety or a vehicle: 

After returning to the area behirid the wall I observed that several officers had arrived and stacked against the 
wall. I did not want officers here afware just pinned down here and it bad position for us to be }n, I 
broadcasted traffic for officers not to respond to the position any longer. I ordered these officers to enter the 
event and begin evacuating citizens: it Was apparent that the event hap suffered several Casualties <radio 
traffic) and I wanted to ensure no other citizens would be shot I ordered the officers to enter arid clear citizens 
from the fence line and then push them east out the east gates; 

I entered the event and began to observe several wounded and deceased amongst the crowd in front of the 
main stage. I ordered for those that could to leave the area as I anticipated more gun fire: Those who were 
injured were being assisted by Off duty BMT’s, PC's and Veterans, When approached by on© of these service 
members or off duty first responders i asked them to assist by pushing the remainder of the crowd out of the 
area and down to the east gates. 



EvEot ttVlHoOIOOggig 

It took a long time to get citizens out of the area and! requested officers to assist over the radio, t ordered 
citizens to leave those that were deceased and leave the event for their own safety, at this point i had no 
information to confirm there would not tm more gun fjre, I wanted to minimize casualties by having everyone 
out, most of the time I was yeiling for people to go ea^t and exit the event. 

After giving direction to citizens end those offering assistance 1 was made aware of performers from the event 
being on buses behind the stage, 1 addressed this as an issue due tp th^ faot they ^vere in the line of fire I 
rnade contact with the manager of the artiste who was very hesi^nt to evacuate thd performers, i spoke with 
Officer Sims and made a plan to provide an escort for all the people on ;the buses to exit the event with police 
■ escorts. . ■ „ 

As i began to address the manager again we learned that there Were several other shootings taking place at 
nearby properties, this was even broadcasted by a female officer over the radio when she broadcasted “active 
shooter at the F^aris,** Due to this infbrmatipn I did npf fee! we had a safe place td serid morie citizens and we 
advised them to shelter in place, however we would still provide an esodrt if they wanted us to. 

It Spencer arrived to the buses a short time later and was brought up to date on the situation, he agreed to 
keep the performers on the buses and to form a small perimeter around the busesi At this point I did hot feel 1 
was being useful in tfiis arpa and expressed to the Mi l vyaf going tp leave thp area; td ldad a sthke team at orie 
of the nearby lodatiohs being broadcasted as haying actii/e shodtbf^.: : 

A tearn of several unknown officers had made their way back to the buses, one being from a specialized unit 
as he had a beard (possibly frorh svvat or HOP), 1 told them 1 would assist them as the supervisor, We made 
our Way to Whicles to go to another property. AftoMinaliy getting to my car l dhwned my armor and fine. At 
this point we had Captain Larkin and Chief Zimmerman arriye to the event. VVe were asked to stay and 
conduct a final sweep of the property to ensure everyone had exited; 

While cbhducting the sweep t learned fhe surveHtance trailer or:CP for the event (loodted at the south end 
behind the Nashville stage) stilt had civilian employees arrd Office^ Steve Hutchason inbide. I assigned hvo 
officera with ones to take up a post over the trailer untir we confirmed wq had no oUtetendin^ sUspects. 

After the sweep 1 spent the rest of the tirhe attempting to secure the scene: Them were several gatee that 
anyone could access, The crime scene was very large with countless deceased Viptima spread throughout, I 
wanted to ensure that no one could enter the eyem and disturb the scene or take photos, etc; I had difficulty in 
getting enough officers to establish the proper containment I felt We needed mom officers to contain 
scene as 1 walked the perimeter several times and continued to find the perimeter lacked integrity, r placed as 
many officers as possible around the scene and voiced my concerns to the PP before being secured around 
0800 hours that morning. 

request that v^omever is reading this 0/R please view my RWp {P#14198) as there Were many officers 
who I relied on heavily and do not know their names, They can possibly be identifi^ in the camera footage, 
Piease contact me with any questions.

towards a domestic dispute in the area of Warm springs and las Vegas Btvd: Over our channel (SCAQ) i heard 
a K9 officer jump on the air requesting to be assigned to the: active shooter in CCAC, l imfhedi^teiy grabbed 
my microphone and requested to be dispatched to the incident as well, t switched my vehicle radio oyer to 
CCAC and could hear actual shooting sounds in the officer’s micrdphonp. 1 initiated my lights and sirens and 
drove as fast as i could towards the Mandalay bay Without knowing any details. 

As I got Closer to Maridalay bay, rdughly at Bussei) pd i o6servdd rio police cars, in front of md: and I Wasn’t 
exactly sure where the gunfire Was coming from. On the radio all j could hbar was t^fficers requesting to stop 
traffic on Las Vegas Blvd to prevent the vehicles from being shot at it w^ at this time | fjnaily learned the 
active shooter was shpoting frorn the floor inside the Mandalay bayi Realizing i was directly uridpr thp:;

Las Vegas Blvd. We turned West on Russell arid drove id the rear of Mandrilay Bay from Frank Siriatra. We get 
to tire loading dqci^; pd start moving into the casino. At this tiihe two Enterprise officers pulled in behind us. 

We entered the! Mandrilay Bay loading dock and everyone in there was completely oblivious to what w^s 
happening. But Security started getting the radio traffic. Wc saw a security guard and asked him to take us to 
the central camera room. When we enter the room, we didn’t have radio signal and were not getting updates. 
The coverage the security lobm had was abysmal and I had my rifle with me and knew I wpuld be better 
utilized somewhere else. I asked the security guard where the shooting was coming riom and he said possibly 
the 32nd floor. J asked him to take me there. They had temporarily shut down the elevatom but he said the

As I get to the 32nd Oeor, there is a team of officers already there. They had just started inoying up the hallway 
towards the shooters suite. I rendes^vous with them and we systematically start clearing rooms* After we clear a 
section which Was 4 rooms we advanced to the next section* While we were doing this^ we were hearing radio 
traffic of shootings at New York New Yorl^, An Explosive pevice at Luxor Valet* It sounded like a MumM 
attack. That being said we notice a cart near the shooters door and U was very out of place* Wp believed it was 
possibly booby trapped. We pressed forward and continued to clear rooms* We got to a ceriain point and jidsted 
up and treated it like a barricade. The suspect wasn't firing and we believed he had bpoby trapped the cart near 
his door with explosives* We had three rifles pointed down i^ange at all tirheS* When someone was tired we 
would swap out positions* I had never worked with these officers l^fore but we all work^ very well together: 
$WAT technicians arrive at our location a little later. I recall there being 3 of them with us* There was also a 
team in the stairwell which was right next to the shooters ropm* 

Sergeant Matchko arrives at our location and gives us a brief of what*s going on, SWAT places a chafge on tlie 
shooters doorypeyblpw the charge and goin,: After they make entry our team continue to clear the remaining 
rooms. Every room was cleared* When all was said and done, wC walked uii to thO shooters roomand noticed 
that oht of place cart had camera's pointing down the hallway at uS; tt was definitely one of those eye opening 
moments, the entire time we Were in the hallway the shoOtei'knew Our location* 

The scene was safe then we hear radio maffic of a shooting at Paris* There was a big group of us that got into an 
elevator and we started walking towards the East Valet. I didn't have a car but security asked us if we needed 
one* I said yes, We were trying to get to Earis bet we were ihte^pted by a cbptlun who told ns to hold our 
position* He later reassigned us to West Valet of Mandalay Bay (next to Light) to watch oyer the people that 

were silting there. That basically concluded my night

Routd 9i Festival Area 

On 10/1/17 at apprbj^irriately 2^05 houm, 1 Officer R. Thiel© P#15356 along with Officer J. Mitbhetl 
P#15337, were operating as marked patrol unit aitiSA in suppprt of piir sguad's {CCI GTplain clothes: operation. 
When the Initial call Of shots fifed in the area of the Rout© 91 cpnpert was broadcasted, we were traveling e^t 
bourid on Sierra Vista just west of the Convention Center Area Gpmmadd, 

We immediately advised dispatch via an/‘AM'' that w© were in^rout© code 1 Are route to the incident 
location was as follows; S/B Paradise to Coiporate, vy/B corpcrate to Howard Hughes 3/B; Howard Hughes to 
Flamingo* W/B Flamingo to Koval, 3/B Koval to Peiio/W/B Reno to Giles, and S/B Giles to tif© vicinity gate 5, 
At thip pointvve exited our vehipte due to ^e large amount pf p^estriah: traffic fUnnihg N/B; on from the 

Route 61 concert yeriue, W© immediately attempted to assess the situation as we believed the gUn fire was 
Coming from the southwest Of our location iriside the Houte 91 venue, Additionatly, at this time approximately 
50 to do individuals, somp Of which were suffering from mipor to sever© injufies, whidh we doiievpd to be 
gunshot wounds, As Officer Mitchell provided ®edurity> I secured the. medicai Kit frorfi the rear of our patrol 
unit, I was then contacted by a white male adult, who was suffering from gunshot wounds to this right leg 
(above the Knee) and right forearm, :The white rnale stated he was an off duty paramedic, and ptated he nOed 
a tourniquet i applied the tourniquet to his right leg, above the Wound, Sirhuitanepusiy, Officer Mitchell and 
myself were directing pedestrians to continue to leave the arepi by running N/B on Giles towards RenOf 
Furthermore, 1 was approached by several pedestri^s. stating they were Off duty medical personnel, asking 
what 1 needed them to do, At this time, we allowed the off-duty medical personnel to treat and depi virfth thp 
wounded While w© soured our Vests and long guns from the rear of the patrol unit Officer Mitchel secured his 
patrol rifle and ! secure my shotgun. 

When then traveled on foot, to what we believe to be gate 6, entered the venue traveling south behind 
several tents inside the eastern fence line. We made this decision for two reasons; 1.) W© still believed that 
the shpoting was coming from inside the venue and 2.) Our Sgt, Sgt Bauman (790) was pinned down by gun 
fire somewhere in the vinicity of Las Vegas Blvd and Mandalay Bdy, the later was believed to be: true 
because 790 was requesting a strike team Over the radio, and then went silent after volley of automatic gun 
fire. VVhen we arrived, to the area of Las Vegas Blvd and Mandalay Bay (inside the vehue) we linked up with 
approximately 10 to 15 other LVMPD officers/who were seeking cOveir behih^the brick vval! paralleling las 
Vegas Blyd, Officer Mitchell and i decided to keep pushing north along the brick wall^ vyith 5 to 6 other officers,

(n an attempt to find a safe place to exit the venue and cross las Vegas Blvd. After several attempts we 
determined it was not safe to cross las Vegas Blvd* instead we decided to move east through the middle of 
the Route 91 venue, directing pedestrians to leave the venue immediately. As this was occurring, Officar 
Mitchell advised me that 8m63 observed a white male adult wearing black fatigues with a dUffle bag entering a 
motor home in the Motel 6 parking lot located on the sdutfiwest corner of Tropicana and KovaL Upon returning 
to out patrol unit, which was still parked on Giles; we decided Ip go to ame3'$ location and assist them in 
dealing with their situation. 

upon arrival, we parked Our patrol unit to the south of 8m63*s location and proceeded on foot to their 
patrol unit At this time, we were informed that Officer S. Wittwer P#152t 3 sustained what he believed tp be a 
broken ankle. Additionally, we were approached by a wfhite male adult wearing a Pallas Oowboy BB cap, wpo 
stated the older white male currently standing outside the motor home with; hie dog, had entered the motor 
home with a black ddffle bag wearing dafk colored fatigues. Furthermore, he s^ted when older white rnale 
exited the motor home he Was wearing a completely different set of clothing and no black bag. Baded on the 
above facts ahd circumstances myself, Officer Mitchell and a BWAT medic know only to us as "Bmitty" 
challenged the individual standing by the mptor home. The older white male was subsepuentiy detained, 
moved to location across Koval, and placed into handcuffs. The older white male stated his wife was in their 
hotel room at Motel 6 and the only reason be was at the motor home was to check on his parrot The older 
white.maie gavo verbal consistent to search his rhotor home. Ti^yselfj pfficer lyijtchali and Bmitty returned to 
rnotdr hprne to cohduCt a search tOr Weapons, Whiph fnet Wi^ negative results. While were searching the 
motor home, the older white male was turned over;to Officer A. Uf P#15392w After retuning back across the 
streel the older white male was conipliant but seemed completely confused about the whole situation. We 
again was asked what he was doing in the area, and why we was seen entering the motor home in ope set of 
clothes and exiting in anpther set- A second search of the mptpr home was conducted by Bmitty, and during 
this search he located a back style bag which contained an empty holster. When the older white hiale was 
asked about the empty holster, he stated th^ h and gun was under th e^vers pn the. bed in the motor home. 
The white male adult was verbally identified asflilHNlilBHHHk 

At this point Smitty treat^ Officer VVittwer for hls (eg injury and secured him a medical transport. 

Officer Wittwer was transported to Spring Valley Hospital. Irhmediateiy following Officer Wittwer being 
transported^ numerous broadcasts came across the radio about possible gun shots at hurherbus other hotel 
properties, one of which described a man with a gun at the tropicana Hotel Valet At which time Smitty and 1 
proceeded to the Tropipana Hotel on foot, and Officers Mitchell and Uf stayed in the area of Motel securing 
Mattingly as well as a make shift casualty collection point and keeping nbn-essential personnel from traveling 
S/B on Kpvat towards the Route 91 Venue. 

Once Smitty and I arrived at the Tropicana Hotel, we linked up With several other officers and it was 
determined that there was no threat at the Tropicana, however we Wem advised by security personnel that 
there was an individual In hotel room 2b44 with a GSW to the head, Along with several other officers and 
medical personnel we made our way to the above mehfiohCd hotel room, but other hotel patrons stated the 
GSW victim has already left in the elevator. Upon returning to the ground floor medical personnel received this 
patron and transported him to a local hospital. 

After finishing up at the Tropicana, Smitty and J relocated ourselves to the, staging area, located at 
Tropicana Ave and las Vegas Blvd. A short while later 1 was assigned to Force Protection (FP) Team 2 under 
Sgt Jivapong. While assigned to FP2 consisting of IVMPQ officers and Fire Fighters we responded to several 
hotel properties which included but were not limited to the Excalibur, Luxor, Delano and Diabio's bar and Grill, 
Nothing significant occurred at any of the properties occurred except for clearing a VIP restaurant on the top 



Ivent#; lTiqoi-3^19 

floor of the Delano, We assisted in moving approximately 40 persons frpm the restaurant which included 
patrons and employees. 

Upon completion at the Deianp^ we returned to the staging area and shortly after I Was reunited with 
CC16 personnel at Las Vegas Blvd and Mandalay Bay,

pick-up truck ha<i stopped right behind us and began grabbing as many people to put in the bed ^ they could 
to take to the hospital* I direpted a woman To help the female 1 was with and make sure she got into the truck. 
Officer Thiele and f had hin out of medical s.uppties .andwe Know we needed to start moving forward towards 
the shooting* 1 grabbed my rifle and plate carrier while Officer Thiele covered our position^ then switched so he 
could put his gear on* \ lead us, with 4 other officers who had made it to our position, south along the east 
fence of the fairgrounds under concealment from the Windows the shooting was coming from* We made it to 
Gate $ and as we entered the fairground we ran into another team of 10-12 officers who Joined our group, I 
was the only rifle so 1 lead us around the inside of the venue to the sOuth and skirted under concealment untli 
we made it to the west wall that was immediately east of las Vegas Blvd, The whole group hunkered down at 
that point trying to find a way across las Vegas BlVd safely, It wa^ clear as We rnoved north along the wall that 
we couldn’t risk running across the street, We would have been too easy a target and anyone trying to get to ps 
to save us could easily get hit tdo* I Knew at this point that 4 officers were already at the room, the shooting 
outside had stopped and teams Were headed to breach the room* 

At this tirno 6Me3 came over thp mdio and advised that a possible suspect Wearing black fatigues with 
a black duffle bag had been seen entering a motor home parked at the MotOi a pear Tropicana and Koval. 1 
decided the best we could do at this time is go tp assist them* Officer Thiele and i then headpd east straight 
across the fairground, pushing the people still In the to, leave to the east* Officer Thiele and i exited 

the area out Gate 6 arid jumped in pur patrOi car* vve drpve back down Beno to Koval, Located aMa3, who

was also injured, he stated he think he broke hts arikie (W© lUtpr found put hp shattered his teg), J took point on 
covering the motorhomo and the eldpriy white male who was standing OuWlGle facing us, he appeWed to be: 
smoking* Officer Thiple and I then crossed Koval and took the man into custody withouf incident^ The man 
had dropped a black Fanny Pack that only contained a lot of tpbaoco. After securing the man behind the Rre 
Engine, Officer Thiele, a Swat Medical named “Smitty” and I went and cleared opt tpe rnotorhome to check it 
for weapons and explosives* The black duffle back was located and only contained clothes, There was found 
in the rnotorhome a worn down tan learner holster belt that had a fixed blade knife-and 2 magazines but hp 
firearm was in the hoister' The firearm was under the covers on the bpd, un der p p arrot the man had in his 
rnotorhome* the man was later Verbally Identified Us 

did no t have a SCOPE record, but it appeared hts brother did for traffic things. After further questioning the 
mu he had stated that he and his wifefwho was of Aslan descent), were visiting from California and were 
supposed to be leaving the next day*fllfeaid he had done 4 year in the navy and he owned a gun that was 
in th emoto rhome* Some quesUonjhg^Hdidn't seem to follow but this at the time appeared to be from his 
patient during the time he was kept in custody and did not say or apt in any Way that made him 
appear to be related to What waeQo|ng on With the shooting* I made several attempt to reach the OP to inform 
them about the rnotorhome and|m|fp fhay wanted to question him-1 was not able to get a hold of 
gone at the CP due to the computers crashing and the cell towers going down I made the decision to release 

After the rnotorhome had been cleared Officer Thiele and the swat medic '^Smitty” ran on foot from 
Koval along Tropicana Ave to the Tropicana Where reports of a victim with a gunshot wound tO the hedd had 
been found, I stayed with Officer Lif due to her partner, Officer Wittwer. being transported to the hospital for 
his injuries. Officer Uf and l stayed with the makeshift medical post to protect it from a shooter possibly trying 
to find an easy target* We were still receiving over the radio multiple reports of shootings along the Strip- 
Officer lif and 1 attempted to clear the parking tot and office buildings alCng Koval and Rend to find any 
wounded and injured to push them towards the medical personnel. We found several people hiding near the 
airport fence that had a few injured with them. We also found a group smashing a window to one of the office 
buildings attempting to seek shelter. We cleared them out and pushed them towards the medical area* We

then formed a road block with pur patrol carp tb Keep people from driving towards the shooting scene and 
spent the next few hours moving people away from the shooting area, 

At one point reports of a Shooter inside of Coco’s restaurant caused Officer lif and 1 to sprint over to the 
location where the shooter had been reported, the radio traffic Said 3 people were down. When we arrived vye 
found 30“40 people hiding inside the restaurant. A few of the people had injuries;but only one had a gunshot 
wound to her lower leg from the initial shooting. The area was safe and y^e called for medical to pick the girl 
with the injury up and then went back to where our patrol cars were acting as a road block; Officer lif arid I 
stayed at this location Keeping people from going towards the shooting scene until traffic units had set up at 
Troplcana and Koval and our Sgt (790) called us over to Mandalay Bay and has Vegas Blvd arpund 0600

At around 2201 hours a unit yeilep. '“Shots fired" at The Fairgrounds where Route 91 was taking place, I 
immediately hopped on the air after another unit saidy “Show me in route pode 3" and said, ’‘3M12 same^ I 
then hppped back on Las Vegas ELVP from Cosrho and headed south towards the fairgrounds across the 
street from the Liixor. I rolled Code P the-entire way, I arrived at the scene in 1 minute'Vyhiie driving: t heard 
automatic gun fir$ bpt vyaS unable to notice where it p^e from; brfginpl radio traffic said Abtive Phboter at the 
Fair Grounds,' 

I parked my car On Las Vegas BLVp in between the Fair Grounds and The Luypr, I did hot hear any shots 
being fired at this time. I could hear the screams and remember a panicl^ed group hear the one of the 
entrances, I deployed my $hot Gun and rah towards that entrarice into the Fairgrounds, Officer J, dories 
arrived right after me and we both headed for the entrance. I noticed a large crowed gathering at the entrance 
some with gunshot Wounds and multiple people bleeding, They asked me ^hat to do and I Shouted, ““Get out 
of herer and pointed north. The group of people began running nprth towards TropiCana op Las Vegas Blvd, 
Officer Jones and! ware about to make entrance into the Fair Grounds when the atitomatic gunfire began 
again. We immediately noted and knew that it was coming frpm Mandalay Bay dnd not the Fairgrounds, Ws 
knew that in prder to protect and save lives we had to get tp the shooter. 

Officer Jones and l ran back across the street towards the LuAor as shots were still being firpd. At the Lukor we 
met up with approximately 7 other Officers, 1 remember repeatedly stated, “Keep moving 1" and “Don‘t stop." 

We formed a Strike team ahd made a puick plan, ( was second in the stack with my shotgun. The whole time 
we could still hear gun shots, vye observed they were coming from high up in the Hotel. V\/e headed through 
the Luxor and told security to shut the plaCe down. We then ran out the south side of Luxor and together as a 
strike team we ran to Mandalay Bay and entered the through valet at the North East Side on the comer of Las 
Vegas Blvd and Mandalay Bay, The shots lasted for around 6 9 minutes. The gun shots stopped as we 
entered the Mandalay Bay, Fearing the subject was trying to escape and unaware of the number of shooters 
we determined to lock down the Casino Floor as we made our way to the elevators.

As we made our way through the casino we got everyone on the ground and began patting people down and 
looking for those who needed medical as w© continue towai'ds the elevator. After traveling through the casino 
and clearing it and the patrons we heard over the air that enough units were on the floor. As a result our 
team began clearing the entire casino floor looKlnp for injured people and suspects that ware involved that 
might have attempted to leave the Hotel. 

As we Were doing this the call came out that there were active shooters at different locations. We ^lit our

well as two i don't recall), loaded up int6 a marked patrof ^UV and stertad heading towards Paris Hotel fpr a

the casino floor and observed no shots fired we began to head to the next shots tired al; the Beiiagio> We again 
did the same thing and noted that no shots had beeri fired after talking with security and detrpns. We then 
headed toward an ambulance that was apparently taking rounds, that pail waS discontinued while en route. 

We then went to another Hotel (I don't recall the name) in regards to more shots being heard dnd active 
assailants walking around with long guns. That call was again proven to not be abcurate. 

At about that time we began Force Protection and formed as Force Protection teams 6 and S with the fire

any injuries. After clearing the restaurant we determined there was no victims there. 

we then were dispatched back to Mandalay bay and began clearing all the rooms. We did this to ensure there 
were no other victims or suspects on the premise. We cleared about 4-6 floors containing almost 100 rooms 
each. Medical personal followed us as we cleared each room. We also advised residents there to stay in their

On 10"1 -2013 at approximately 2200jjours; i, Officer M; Truax P# I375g was attentling the Route 91 Harvest 
Festival concert with my husband^l® tocated at 3950 S. Las Vegas BlvO LV» f^V 39106. ^4|panct I were 
standing at stage right* approximately 30 feet east of the vendoriovy* and 90 feet north Of the m^n stage; 
when vye heard aperies of loud bangs. We initially assessed the noises tp pe fireworks, or a speaker 
malfunction; We stood in the concert venue and continued to hear twb more volleys of what sounded 
increasingly like gunshots. We were ufiable to determine where the sounds were originating from, and our first 
concern was a gunman/gunmen inside the venue itself. As we saw the majority of the event crowd begin to, 
egress to the east; and towards us, we recognized we need tp stay ahead of the crowd surge and exited out 
giate-e'onto ,G)les.'St where ,we;had-'par1<dd:.'''' 

Our first stop.was to fake concealment immediately pro^mate to gate 6, where We triOd tp assess the situation. 
We were accompanied by four CSC Security personnel also attempting ip determine what was occurring. At 
the next break in giinfire, we rnoved into Oifes Street and tpok cover behind a marked IVMpp SQV* we 
looked into the venue, we saw injured but mobile victims moving towards the dirt parking lot east of OiieS, 
Injuries appeared to be due to falls related to the crowd surge, as opposed to gunfire^ At some point, this 
vehicle moved; possibly by a female civilian. As tlie crowd density increased, and Without cover, we moved 
into the dirt lot so my husband could phone info his leadership at MQM <jorpor^te Security: While he was 
making his report* I helped ao approximately 23 year old WFA with a possible gunshot wound to the upper left 
arm. i applied pressure and attempted to calm the WfA- A civilian With a pipkup truck pulled up and offered to 
take her to get medicai attention, and she left. Another approximately 35 year old WMA approached vvHh a 
possible separated shoulder and we helped him as well. 

After approximately ten minutes we no longer heard gunshots, Wa decided to go to our vehicle. I observed 
vehicles were leaving the parking lot and some taking individuals to the hospital; We started driving away from 
the venue and towards MGM on Giles $t We w ere stopped and asKOd if we would take an injured female to 
the hospital. We loaded a female named her husband anb another female into the back of our vehicle 
and transported her to Sunrise HospitaL After we left Sunrise we drove to 4^|Pwbrk at MGM. f-Yl

On October 1*', 2t)17,1 woke at approximately 2230 hours whan itty Wife aaid a friend had called her kbout a 
mass shooting at the Route 91 Festival acr*os$ from lyiandai^y Bay; I immediately grabbed my radio and 
dressed out while listening tp the radio traffic, before quickiy leaving my house to head towards the scene- 
while en route 1 called U. Bell, to ask for where he wanted me and my squad to resbonci. He said tb begin 
getting ready and he would call me back to advise, so 1 continued towa^d^ the scene. While en route* they 
updated on the radio that the suspect was down and the shootin^ had stopped, knowing that Events Flanning 
is responsible for pot only the Route 91 event, but also the ABX activation and squdd assignments, I made the 
determination to head to HQ to assist at the QOG, I called all of my officers; first contirming that Officer Tim 
Frederick Planning Coordinator pbpilia RddhquO^ p#7a^ly whd 

in me 6 p, were okdy. 

Once ! knew they were alright, t sent Officer Rick Marini P#9e39 to head do^n to T-Mobile arena to monitor 
camerasi as Ci Bell had called me back and asked that 1 send one officer to T^MCbiiei since they haW camera 
feeds into all MGM properties. 1 instructed the rest of the squad to respond to HQ to assist with ^ttirig up the 
DOC and handljpg siteeecuhty; at HQ, Upon arrival at Headquarters, I responded to the i;VMPD Action room 
where the DOC was being set up. Over the course af me next hour, my o^icers finished trickling in. Officers 
John GpokP#325i* Gordon McONe Pi^883, Rick Npgues P#^e22, Jasdn Rich P#90^2 arid Uustin White 
P#893^ responded to HO, We worked with DOE Sergeants Braden Schrag and Ivan Chaifnan tp provide initial 
site security for HQ, and my officers began managing entry and exit for the hallway entrance outside the action 
room; 1 immediately contacted ^t. Aitee Burnett with oCiTSi and asked her tp have her Headquarters officers 
respond to assist with site security and manage entry to building B. She had to call and wake up tier people, 
and! recalled her to advise we needed their keys also to access the rooms that were originally designated for 
the family of victims and rooms for the media to be briefed. Once her officers showed up, they assisted with 
site security and accessing rooms. 

My team was directed to begin the ABX Level 4 roster activation to call in ali IVMPD OfficerSi Department 
wide* Captain Vinny Cannito was in charge of maktrig the notifications to Captains, while my squad put 
together the squad assignments for where existing officers were stationed; in addition to compiling 
assignments for up and down the strip for the next operational period, which would begin at 0600 hours- At the 
direction of Assistant Sheriff Tim Kelly, 4 person Strike Teams were to be placed at each hotel along the strip

corridor. This was because we stifl had not detdrmih^ if the shooter had acted alone, or vyas part of a 
coordinated attack. We also had to set up staffing coverage for the Crime Scene at the MGM Village tot where 
the shooting occurred, Mandalay Bay Hotel, The Family Resource Center that was later establish at the Las 
Vegas Convention Center, The Davis Funeral Home where Charleston's body was located, and the Coroners 
office where numerous victims'hodies had been mbyed. 

Over the next several hours we coordinated which squads would be relieving the various locations that needed 
relief for the next shift, and we forwarded this information to the respebtive Captains arid Lieutenants over 
these squads: i was also tasked with being the Liason wim all other jurisdictions that were offering to send Law 
Entorcement Resources, and I coordinated the use of these jurisdictions in staffing! the crime scenes and for 
site security at LVMPD Headquarters. Iri addition to performing the above tasks, my team was responsible for 
ensuring that all squads were accounted fpri and We were the point of contact for any officers or squads who 
did not show up to relieve their posts as directed. 

Over the course of the first few ddys after the incident, everyone in friy section worked 14-18 hour days at 
Headquarters to help mobilize, coordinate and adjust resources as the needs at the crime scene diminished. 
We were also tasked with meeting with Secret {Service arid arranging for the President of the United 
State$(POTU$) visit that occurred just days after the event. These arrangements included running the route 
the President wqUid t^e, andcooitfinating Sbcurity measures fpr his visit to LVMPp hea^uarters, in addition 
to working with bur Public Safety Partners to acquire the additional rnanpowei^ needed from bther jurisdictions 
to properly staff the event 

These responsibiiities were in addition to bur normal operations during ari already busy montht which required 
everyone oh my tearn to put in countless hours ensuring everything was covered, in the Immediate aftermath 
of the tragic shooting, we saw an Influx of additibnal requests for ovoillme officers at events. We were 
not always able to accommodate ai! these additional requests^ but did the best we cbuld under the 
circumstances, ensuring that aii large events had some Police presence, The Vice Pr^ident of the United 
States (VPQTUS) also visited a few days after the President of the United States did, further stretching bur 
already strained resources, 

1 was very impressed with the hard w^rk and dedication that my Events Planning Officers and Events Piannirig 
Coordinators put in during this critical incident and in the days thereafter, in sblte of the long hours and 
unrealistic expectations that were plqoed bri them, they rose to the occasion and we were successful in 
accomplishing everything that was needed from us. while i seek nothing for myself, 1 hope that they will be 
properly recognized for their hard work arid dedicallori In light of their exceptional performance.

Mandalay, Bay Hotel and Casino 


On 10-01-^017, LVMPD dispatch recelvod multiple calls of an active shooter occurring on the Las Vegas Strip* 
specifically occurring at the Route 91 Harvest Festival, Dispatch guickly uijdated this as a ’‘Mass Casualty’' 
event and activated ali area command in the box scjuads. 

On, the day of the event, Myself {Sgt M, Rui2 F#6794); W, Sylva P^408p, d, Mott P#7464, and, B. Kenton 
P#8884 vyere operating as plain clothes detectives with the NWAC patrol investigations* OncVlhe ratiio traffic 
had been broadcast all of the above listed detectives proceeded tO dawn our tactical gear and respond to the 

While en route to the dvent units were advised to stage in the parking Ibt of South-central Area Command, My 
detectives and i proceeded to that location where were assigned to striKe team #7 and sent to the area of the 
CromwelMo address reports of additional shooters, 

Once arrived to the Cronriweii, My team wasmet with officers frorh MW AC graveyard shift, being led by Sgt, J, 
Dean P^^1S7, Together both teams addressed additional reports of possible active shooters. At) reports were 
found to be unsubstantiated^ 

Approximately £0”30 mihutes after our arriv^, detectives were joined by mernbers of NLVPD SWAT who 
assisted in securing the surrounding casinos, It should be noted that during the event NIVPD did not have a 
direct line Qf communication as the dvent was never assigned a mutual aid channel* 

Issues arising from our assignment included tack of available communication with other agericies to traffic 
control (both pedestrian and vehicle). As a supervisor on scene, it was immediateiy evident that man-power 
was limited and the availability to complete a complete closure of the las Vegas Strip was very difficult if not 
irnpossible, 1 would howevbr suggest using blockades placed by hotel security as well as assistance in freeway 
and strip vehicular traffic with Nevada Highway patrol, Should an active shooter be mobile on the strip it would 
have been nearly impossible to engage duo to the possibility of civilian casuatties, in response to 
communication issues, it is my belief the event should have been transferred to a mutual aid charinel, where 
every assisting agency would have access.

On 10/01/171 Officer Th Muis P# 14826 was worKinQ overtime at the Route 91 Counlty Music Festival, working 
in a traffic control capacity, directing pedestrian traffic at Renp/S Iv Blvi At approximately 2210 hours, I was 
standing on the south side ot Reno ori the center median of the Bivd talking with Officer J; Beaeon P ^ 1418i, 
when we heard a volley of what we Peiieved to he tireworks. We then immediately heard a second volley that 
spunded more likegunshots, but it sounded like fully automatic fire and Vo were inVisbelief that it could be , 
what we wPre thinking: When we heard the third volley starting, we started looking for possible fireworks, and 
very shortly after, someone got on the radio screaming about a 41SA inside the venue, 

At that; time,! imm^iateiy rah pack to the Arcb whei^ my vehicle but oh my hfle piate^^c 

and deploy my rifle, i duickly donhed my plate carrier, chambered a roUnd in my rile, and saw J Biddle P # 
9306 also depioying his rifle. We quickly determined that we Weren't going to have time to attempt to don our 
heimpts, and that we needed to head south on foot asap. We switched our radios to dcAO to Work the 
incident; and both ran south ph the sivd after yelling at multiple people to run north away from the gun shots. 
We Advanced Bduth runriing, using the trees in the center median as concealment, as wO had no cover, arid 
the information had bden broadcast that the shots was coming from the Mandalay Bay. We continued south 
directing fleeing people to continue running north away from the shots, as a lot of civilians appeared to be 
disoriented 4nd unaware of Where the shots wpre coming from, As we eontihupd south and potcloser to the 
Mandalay Bay, we crossed West across the Sivd juSt north of the Sphirik, as we oOuld this a$ cover tarie^^^^ 
because we could hear we were getting closer to the shots. Wb continued south using the small Sphinxes on 
the far eapt arid of the tuxdr parking tot as conOealment, and linked up With three more officers and forrned a 
strike team. 

We briefly paused there, attempting to formulate a plan as to how we would be able to best approach the 
Mandalay Bay: While there waiting for Sgt Riddle and the other officers on scene to quickly formulate a plan to 
advance further south, three civilians crossed the Blyd towards us and were extfemeiy panicked, and appeared 
to be wanting to follow us. They were completely terrified, not realizing that we were heading towards the 
shooter. I attempted to shield them with my body as the shots were still going off, and I was at Idast weking a 
rifle rated plate carrier. I tried to tel) them multiple times to run north, pointing for teom to run to the other side 
Of fha Sphinx, as there was sorne good cover that way. The group had one male and two females, and one of 
the females stood up and immediately fell yelling Ouch as she did. I quickly assessed to see if she had been

shot, and it appeared that she hadn't. I had td physlcatfy grap the three of them as best I copld while keeping 
myself in between them and the shooter, and push them to the east so they could run north to some covei". 
When I was confident that they ware behind good hard cover and running in the dght direction, i was able to 
link back up with the strike team. 

We determined dur most successful aVeniie of approach wddld be to head to the west more, and approach 
from the north through the southeast park of the Luxor parkiiig lot, using the darkness and vehicles as cover 
and concealment. We eventually mad© ourway across fifl^daiay Bay Rd after briefly linking up with another 
Strike team, and utilizing a bounding dverwatch technique to continue advancing-At that polrtt, We made entry 
with; direction from some casino employees Who Were hiding outside, on the north side employee entrance. 
From that pomt, Sgt Riddle led one strike team to the right{west), and mysdlf and the other strike tearn went 
(eft(east), I stayed with the other stirike team as they had no rifle carriers with them. Both teams procdeded to 
clear the casino floor separately, directing any civilians we encountered to get outside on the north side of the 
casino floor, We initially had reports of multiple shooters, and we were prepared for and fully expected tp 
encounter resistance from a second shooter as we tried to rriake our way to the elevators: While w© 
advancing wp cleared out as muCh as we could, as we were no longer hearing any gun shots onqe we got 
inside the casino floor. We cleared a couple restrooms, and approximately four to fivS store fronts as we were 
advancing; We encountered a sniall group of ppople hiding behind a casino bar area, and iriMructed them on 
' where to';fiee. 

We eventually made opr way to the main entrance, by the valet section of the casino floor, just Inside. We 
ended up holding that area just outside of the main eleyator bank. We were not able to head upstairs,! as-the 
elevators Were shut down by the time we reached them, and we already h^d one team upstairs. Once swat 
breached trie room and conducted a brief preliminary investigation^ it wee apparent that there was only one 
SbPoteri but we Were still recSiying call after call pf adtiv© Shooters on other strip properties. AfterHOlding oh : 
the elevators for some time, myself and the other Officer I was there with (neyergdl his name) w©r© 
outside to the valet area to regroup. 

While outside we Were going to be re'assignod to form a perimeter around the casino, but t ended Up getting 
assigned with Rescue Task Force One, because t had a rihe deployed. We made ent^ back fiitb the casino 
and stood by there for further instructions with the task force. We were receiving mOdiCai calls through our FP 
partners that we were assigned with, but we were being told to hold off on responding to those calls by the 
command post for some reason, which we were never given, it seemed like there was a laCk of goof 
information being relayed back and forth, and at me ground level, the communication with the CP did not seOm 
efficient or ffuid. This was frustrating, as We were standing by With a capable rescue team to aid the wounded 
in the Mandalay bay, and Were being told to not respond to those; Calls for help, 

Eventually, at approximately 0400 hours, our rescue task teres was recalled to the staging area (at SOAC) to 
stahd by for further instructions, and we stood by there for approximately 30 to 45 minutes, the Fp element of 
our task fpree was redirected, and we were reassigned as strike team 49; Shortly after that, the overtime 
officers were called over to assist with figuring put Which overtime units Wete still present and deployed, and 
We were instructed to secure from there. From that point, a group of four of us walked from SCAC, to Rend/S 
LV Btvd where our vehicles were, as the FO element of our task force had been redirected, and we were using 
their County Fire and Rescue ambulance as transportation for the rescue task fprCe. 

Once arrived there, wo checked out with special events in the church parking lot at approximately 0500^ and 
were sent to debrief. From there I arrived back to SVAC to secure at approximately 060d hours.

Gn 10/07/17 at 2205 hours, I, Brennan Childers P#14$33 as marked patrol unit 105 was in the AGIO office at 
EAC when I heard of a 415A on CCAQ feeing broadcasted on BA0*s radio channel It was also at te time that 
I heard a detective runriing down the hallway to presumably tell e'/aryone who was in the briefing roorh. Upon 
hearing this, I ran to my patrol vehicle. 

initially, i went to our rally point at Sunset/Jones, missing the info of going straight to SGA^i I then met up with 
my squad at SCAP who Was still dawning their riot hplmets and gas masks, Once with the squad, 1 took down 
everyone's, names^ P#’s, call signs, etc and gave them to our sergeant A; Hee, VVe Wore asstgried as Strike 

ft felt as though we were standing by for a long period of time, in retrospect, I felt this way because my radio 
Was on SCAC, unaware of the adfidP being taken on CPAC. iriittaHy, we were aoaigned to Reno/PiieS and 
were told that peOp|e were ‘pinned down’ in vehicles, and we vi^re unsure if the shooter was still looking dOwn 
on the area, I Was not aware at the time that we Vyere at the venue, as 1 thought it was across the street within 
the footprint of the Mandalay Bay. 

We were ah scene for maybe 5 minutes, before we were reassigned to the intersection of Four Seasons and 
the Boulevard, We met with some other officers, and assisted in evacuating people who were in businesses 
along the e^t side of the strip, south of the ypnue. Again, we Were unaware if the shootarfs) wes/were still 
■actively watching,'; ■ 

Once the buildings were secure, We spent an extended period of time at this inferseotidn, instructing 
pedestrians to walk south and addressing suspicious vehicles arid pedestrians that Were leaving the Mandalay 
Bay, My primary partner was Officer pharit Prtsbrey P#14751. We stood at the southwest corner of the Four 
Seasons/Boulevard Intersection. It was here that w® saw Instagram videos of the shooting, speculated there 
was only one shopter, and ultimately got word that the room had been breached and a suspdct was down. 
However, the influx of calls stating that there wafo ^'IO down at the intersection of Trop arid The Boulevard'" and 
shots fired at Hooters, NYHY, Tropicaha, MOM, etc caused us alarrii, thinking that there may havO been more 

At one point, Sergeant Hee left and took with him two of the people in pur strike team to handle pePple 
sheltering in the Michael Jackson Theatre at the Maridalay Bay. Officer Prisferey and i stayed at the 
intersection under,the direction of lieutenant Desimone, On two occasions, U Desimone left the intersection in

officer who was working the venue, v^o had a rifle; We stayed there for over an hour, before a cal! on the radio 
asked for available officers to come back to the QR for reassignrrient 

Officer Prisbrey and I wOnt back to the CP, and were eventually reassigned to another strike team that was 
helping Sergeant Van Nest hold a perimeter on the yenue for evidentiary purr>oses. it was here that i was able 
to see the broken windows at the Mandalay Bay; the blood trail northbound on the sidewalk, several 419's 
inside the venue, and several shot patrol care. Sergeant Vah Nest is sdmeone 1 look up to, and 1 was happy to 
be there with him, Prisbrey and I stayed there for an extended period of time, moving along news reporters 
who were setting up nearby arid having pedestrians on the other side of the street continue southbound; 

Around 0600, Prisbrey volunteered to help mbtor officers shut down westbound Tropicana, east of the strip. 
We aided them with cones, tape, and our vehicles. It was at this time that 1 obseryed otie 419 in the center of 
Trop/LVB and another on the southeast corner in front of Hooters near a 401, We remained there aiding them 
until we were relieved by Hendersbn PD around 0720 hours. Then we went back to the CR, |got back in my 
patrol car, and we ended our shift 

Sergeant Hee, who was aware of the fact that Oharii and I were at the scene of the carnage, did an amazing 
job in making sure, we were okay, in, the clays following, he vyent above.dnd bpyond.fdr us, ! was borh and

stopped* and seif'dispatched to tfie Mandalay Bay, arriving approximately 2 mihutes after the initial radio 

During the initiai radio transmissions, we understood there to be On actiye shooter at “stage left/' but did 
not hear which stage, specihcally, thp officers were identifying. We knew that the Mandalay had rnuitiple 
venues on their property* including their pool area, House of Blues, etc; Ouf imihediate reaction was to 
respond to the main property, form a QBF and enter the hotel. 

As we appmached the intersection of South LaC Vepas Boulevard at Mandalay Bay Road, we could 
clearly hear, what sounded like fuliy-automatic gunfire, followed by the sound of bullets whizzihg by our patrol 
yehicie. Simultaneously, we began hearing thattho shots were being fired from inside thd Mandalay Bayi 
directly towards our location. 

We made an immediate eastbbund turn from South las Vegas Boulevard onto Mandalay Bay Road, 
where we bailed out and look cover behind the engine biCcK of our patrol vehicle. Ih between volleys of fire, 
Officer Eshe and! were able to retrieve our tac-vests, rifle, patrol trauma Kits, and personal 'iFAKs/' 

DUririg the volleys of fire, pn multiple occasions* Officer Eshe and 1 were forced to leave coyer to 
prevent persons fleeing the concert from inadvertently running pack into the line of fire. Additionally, we were 
forced to leave cover to prevent civilians from driving west pn Mandalay Bay Road towards SOiith Las Vegas 
Boulevard, again, directly into the tine of fire. Lastly, we were forced to leave cover to prevent the theft of an 
unlocked, unmarked, white LVMPD pick-up truck which had been parked in the center of Giles Street at ,East 
Mandalay Bay Road for traffic control during the concert.

After af^proximatety 10 minutoa, we mpvad east towards Giles Street; where we assisted several 
Injured concertgoers climbing over the chain (ink fence. At this poihl, Officer Eshe end 1 provided basic life 
support to the walking wounded using toumiqoetS, as well as pufcK-GIpt gau 2 :e from our patrol trauma kits. 

We then linked up with a 3 officer element from CCAG - Officers M. Scott (P#16139), and G. Sims {F# 
16143); both of whom are FTEP trainees, as welt as Officer X Johnson {p# 160Q4), Having formed a 5-rnan 
element, we entered the Route 91 Harvest Festival using the sputhernrhost entrance off Giles Street, and 
moved south toward the stage, where we began pushing conceit attehdees northward, out of the line of fire, 
and towards the slowly amassing EMS assets at East Berio Ave and Giles Street 

At about this tirne, reports of an active shooter at the iropicana began coming in. We moved our 5- 
man element into the southwest parking tot of the tropicaha, and moved northwards, wrapping around the 
frorit of the hotel. Along the Way, we interviewed several pedestrians asking if they heard shots from within the 
Tropicana, arid all responded in the negative. We deduced that the Tropicana had received walking-wounded 
from the Route 91 concert, and that whomever called in the active shooter at the Tropicana Had misinterpreted 
the situation. After broadcasting this Information, wo then received reports of ah active shooter at New York, 
New York, pur 5-rnan element ran towards South Las Vegas Boulevard, jumped the traffic barrier, jogged 
across the bputeyard, and Jumped another traffic barrier, where we also learned there was no active shpoter. 
We then linked up with LVMPp SWAT, becoming part of 583Z, Sgt Pennucqrs QBF. 

After becoming part of SS^Z's QRF, We moved: hastily towards stopping bniy briefly 

at the Luxor Hptel where we spotted what ihitiaily appeared to be a vehipte born improvised explosive device. 
Once at the Mandalay 6ay, we made entry through the main lobby, and headed to the 30'*’ floor, where we 
began clearing flopr-by-flOor. 

After approximately an hour inside Mandalay Say, 583Z moved us but oLthe hotel, and back to the 
Route 91 Harvest location, to provide protection for FMS assets. At this point, 663Z released our initial 5-man 
element, and we became QRF-a, taking a position along with Sgt StoVail at the north valet of the Luxor HoteL 

At approximately 0600, Officers Scott, Bims, and Johnson were recalled by their sergeant. Officer 
Eshe and { remained on post until 0900 hours when relieved by A-roster officers:

this plan was being formulated the male 1 recognized to beflMIMHVoame up to me and asKed me if he 
could help, I advised him to get to safety, and subsequently he advised me that he was an off-duty New 
Mexico police officer* When 1 asked him for his credentials he produced a goid in color badge with numbers cut 
out on the bottom* I did not believe him to be a police officer due to a recent federal case where he had tO give 
a public service announcement on safe shooting: At no point did he produce any identification card with his ^ 
name or department on it, only the badge-

This is the series of events as i; Officer D, Moyer P# 15734 rememher them. 

On October 1st 2017 my saiiad was in briefing at $CAC: After a few minutes into briefing 5gt Jackson told 
everyone to turn on their radios as there is a potential active shooter in CCAQ, Everyone; turn bn their radios 
and switched to CCACs channel. VVithin seconds we heard an Overtime Officer screaming for help and that 
there was an active shooter at the festival near gate 7, 

Without hesitation, l along with everyone eise in the briefing room jumped up and ran out of the briefing room 
to pur patrol vehicles, l got info the drivers spat and OfficerWebb jumped into the passenger s^^^ 
vehicle, j remember turn the lights to code 3 and flooring the patrol vehicle as we left SCAC heaping to the 
festival grounds. 

yyhile approaching the; area, I noticed that traffic Was not blocked on the Blvd at Mandalay Bay Bd. Qnce we 
reached the intersection of Mandalay Bay and the Blvd» {swuhg the patrol car inTront of north bound traffic. 
This is when I noticed a group of civilians orobOhing down behind a metal box ori the sidewalk. ] drovp the 
vehicle up to them to help provide coyer for them frorh the shooting as we had no idea wherb it was coming

once parked, we exited the vehicle and) immediately heard automatic gun fire coming from an unknown 
direction, I went to the back of the patrol vehicle to get my personal shotgun, extra shotgun ammo and my 
tactical vest with rifle rated plates in it. This is when I realised that the shooting Was coming from fhe Mandalay 
Bay Hotel which Was behind me, i could tell that the shooting was going over our heads and not right at us. 
Grabbing me gear i ran to the front of the vehicle where the Officer Webb was at and put my tactical vest on. 
This is also when Officer Collins and an Arrny Soldier came to seek cover with us behind the vehicle; 

We heard a break in the fire and started to tell the group of civilians next to tis tO run eastboubd, away frorh the 
gun fire, I started to scan the area for threats and noticed that Officer Ruth wes pinned down behind a Crown

trying to run into the gun fire. I ran to Officer Ruth and along vyith another Officer got therh to a tetter area for 
cover, We were able to push a bit north to an area that had Explore Patrol Vehicle that offered better cover. 

This is when I was met up with an unknown LVMFD Sgt* who had an Australian accent, who was pinned down 
with more civilians. His, body camera footage was some thatvvas shared with the media, showing him pushing 
back the sarhe civilian that Officer Ruth was holding back. 

The $gt told rhe to go in-front pf the brick wall to our east and get coyer behind a tree so i could cover hirfi to 
get the civilians over the brick wall. Once at the wall! did a quick peek over the Wall and saw more IVMPD 
Officers and recognized one, Sgt Bauman, l informed Bauman that Vye had civilians with us and we are 
sending them over, while I provide ooVer the other Sgt help the civilians over the wall Once all Of thenri were 
over the wali I climbed over. 

I took a second to account for my gear and make sure I w^s ready for what may coma ne?(L I went up to Sgt 
Bauman and asked where he needed me. this is when Sgt Bauman started to put together strike teams to 
push into the Mandalay Bay: Sgt Bauman asked me to run, point since I had a shotgun and a tactical vest. We 
came up with a plan to bound across the Blvd and to stop at patrol vehicle tO ensure there were secure before 
we pushed forward. 

I pushed west to the center median With Officer Ruth providing rear cover, Once set our team joined us to 
provide cover as we apain pushed forward, tp the west side of the Bivd; Once across I observed two civilians 
crouching down on the south side of Martdalay Bay Rd nekt to the landscaping. We carhe up with a plan to 
rescue them and bounded to them* I Provide cover a$ other Officers got the back across the street to safety^ 

The team rejoined me at my position and we started pushing to the front entrance of the Mandalay Bay. We 
noticed another strike team ci'psslng from the buxor parking lot just West of us. Sgt Bauman told me to. find a 
way through the landscaping to push parallel with them-! found a break in the bushes pushed forward. We 
ended up On the upper Vaiet at the front entrance. As we cleared fopyard we noticed that, a grbup of Officer had 
already.,cleared the entrance to the casino floor.! pushed forward and,found a grbup of hotel security officers' 
that Came from the lobby. I directed the security officers to take coyer away ffom the entrance and to hold a 
group of civilians with them as one of the security officers was armed! 

t informed Sgt Bauman that there was no Officer covering the lobby area. He had our strike team push into the 
lobby to clear it and hold it. While clearing the area | located another sihgie hotel security officer by a bank of 
elevators, hie informed rne that he had the access keys to the elevators, I told him to head towards Sgt 
Bauman and slay with him, As we still cleared myself and Officer Ruth held a position in the lobby with Sgt 
Bauman while the rest of our team cleared the hotel registration office. 

While holding me lobby i heard that SWAT was able to place breaching charges on the door to the shooters 
room and rhade enter. After bolding the lobby for a few more minutes, W^o LVMPD SWat Officers camd my 
way and directed me that I was going With them up to the floor where the shooting Was coming from. We went 
to the 32nd floor of the tower and helped dear some of the last rooms to search for more shooters. 

Once all the rooms were cleared we consolidated and took an elevator back down to the lobby, At this time 
dispatch was getting a lot of calls about shootings at other strip properties. The SWAT Officers were tasked 
with another mission left us in the main valet, l was going to rejoin Bgt Bauman when a IVMPD Captain told 
me and others to stand by in the yalet and provide cover for him while he helped direct resources at the 
Mahdaiay Bay, After a few ho directed Officer Ciske and another to get a vehicle and bring it back so he could

use us in a different area. Once the Officers returned the Captain directed us to go to the west valet as there 
was a group of civilians there and no Officers there to provide protection to them* 

Once in the West valet, I observed grou);^ of civilians in the gar^e area and still in the entrance of the 
shopping areas of the hotel. I directed all the ctyiliahs into an area where 1 thought best i cout(;i protect them Out 
in the valet drop off area, 1 estimated about one hundred civilians were In our area. Officer UsKe and the other 
Officer went inside to clear out any civitians they found in the area, l remairied out with the group of civilians to 
provide them with protection. I had a ipt of them come up and ask what was going on, if they could leave the 
area and if (Knew if there were more attacks happening at other areas dh the sthd- i let them know we area 
work on get the whole strip on lockdown to make sure everyone is safe. One group came up to me a tet me 
know they were off-duty Officers from another agency in California ■ One of thern tost his phone and wanted to 
go look for it inside the hotel, instead 1 let him use mine to call his family- , , ^ 

We held that position for a few hours- Eventually the civilians were led away from my position, Thfe is when l 
had a chance to call my Sgt to let him know where I was at. After a bit Cgt Jackson called me back a let me 
know that we need to head to the staging area to gat sent back out in strike teams. After Returning to SOAC no
