LAS VEGAS — On Friday the Los Angeles Post-Examiner reported in this article that the Texas law firm of E. Craig Eiland had sent a Nevada public records request to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) on June 29 for the lock interrogation reports for Stephen Paddock’s Mandalay Bay Hotel rooms and also cell phone records and cell phone videos obtained from any person at the Mandalay Bay on October 1 and October 2.

On July 11, Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo who runs the LVMPD responded in a letter to that request:

Your public records request dated June 29, 2018, addressed to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Office of Public Information has been forwarded to my office for response. You are requesting the production or inspection of documents that are mentioned on page 7 of 81 of the LVMPD Force Investigation Team Report under Event No. 171001-3519, footnote 3 of the report. Below are the specific documents you are requesting:

  • All lock interrogation documents from Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino obtained by LVMPD in connection to the 1 October shooting.
  • All cell phone videos obtained from any individual at Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino for the period of 12:00AM on October 1, 2017 to 11:59PM on October 2, 2017.
