Police release body-camera videos from Las Vegas shooting

Las Vegas police on Wednesday released some officer body-camera video from the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

The footage shows the tense moments when a group of heavily armed SWAT officers entered the 32nd-floor hotel room at the Mandalay Bay where Stephen Paddock unleashed gunfire on a concert last October.

Police and the FBI have said he killed 58 people and injured hundreds more before killing himself as authorities closed in.

The footage will not show what the first officer through the door saw because he didn't activate his body-worn camera.
