Media Suing Las Vegas Police For Release Of Public Records From Las Vegas Shooting

Barely a month old, the Las Vegas shooting already has a plethora of conspiracy theories surrounding it, many of which stem from conflicting reports from witnesses and law enforcement. In an attempt to get to the bottom of what happened that night, seven news organizations have filed a lawsuit against the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department after they refused to release public records surrounding the events of October 1.

Police and county officials are refusing to produce the log of 911 calls and the recordings of those calls despite repeated requests from several news agencies. The lawsuit was filed Thursday morning in Clark County District Court and along with the public records of the 911 calls, the lawsuit is seeking 14 search warrants connected with the investigation into Stephen Paddock.

Police attained warrants for the Las Vegas shooter's home in Mesquite, the 32nd-floor hotel suite at the Mandalay Bay and several electronic information warrants to obtain data from Google and Verizon.

According to the lawsuit, the public deserves to know as much about what happened the night of October 1 and the government's response as possible. It alleges that the only way for the public to know that the response to the deadliest mass shooting in the nation's history was "appropriate, lawful, and effective."
