Review-Journal goes to court to obtain Las Vegas shooting records


The Las Vegas Review-Journal took legal action Friday to obtain law enforcement records kept secret by authorities in the wake of the Oct. 1 Strip massacre.

In three separate actions, the newspaper is joining other media outlets seeking to shed light on the investigation into the worst mass shooting in modern American history. Fifty-eight people were killed after a gunman fired into a crowd of concert-goers from his 32nd-floor Mandalay Bay suite before killing himself.

As authorities continue to lock down public records related to the shooting, questions are mounting about the emergency response and the shooter’s motive.

The Review-Journal submitted a petition Friday in Clark County District Court seeking 911 recordings and logs of the emergency calls the night of the shooting. More than a month after the newspaper asked for the public records, Las Vegas police have declined to turn them over, the petition says.
