Dramatic footage from the officers’ body-cams show how they carefully walked through a packed casino shortly after panicked crowds at an outdoor concert ducked from gunfire raining down over them.
The gunfire was coming from the 32nd floor of a Las Vegas hotel, where gunman, Stephen Paddock had unleashed a vicious, unprovoked shooting spree killing 58 people, on October 1.
Footage shows how hotel guests were playing on slot machines in the casino as a police officer informed an employee and said: “There’s a shooter. He’s shot and killed multiple people already.”
Police were clear when they gave the order for people to get out.

Paddock killed 58 people and injured hundreds more from the windows of his hotel suite last year before killing himself as authorities closed in.
As soon as they arrived, an officer said: “Breach! Breach! Breach!” before a loud bang and a fire alarm begins to sound.
When police discovered Paddock, his body was surrounded by assault weapons, the body-camera video showed.
The gunman was wearing dark trousers and a long-sleeve shirt with a glove on his left hand.

He was lying in a pool of blood.
The officers look behind the curtains and gathered an assault-style rifle from the ledge of a broken window and other weapons are found around the room.
Another policeman describes how Paddock was "blasting out the window" while pointing to "a whole suitcase full of loaded AK mags.”
An officer can be heard saying: “I don't know what that is, but there's a wire there. He put cameras up on the peepholes and all that. That's what these wire are."
Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, told reporters on Tuesday, that, months on, it is still not clear why the gunman opened fire on the crowd of concert-goers.
