Frantic calls from concert-goers tell the police that people are attacked by shots and hide under the stage at a concert that took place in the vicinity of the Mandalay Bay hotel.

Video taken from the roof of the hotel let people in the room fall and others try to help them as people walk in the direction of the exits.

The material was made available Wednesday on the basis of a court order more than eight months after the Oct. 1 shooting that killed 58 people injured and hundreds of others.

It is the fifth batch of records made public without comment, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo or his department. The FBI in Las Vegas also declined to comment.

Lombardo has said researchers do not know a motive for the attack and he doesn’t think one will be determined.

He said that there is no connection found to the international terrorism.

Authorities say gunman Stephen Paddock acted alone in shooting from the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay hotel in a concert crowd.

The investigation is continuing.
