‘Run, Don't Walk': Video Shows Officers Directing People to Safety in Chaotic Escape From Gunfire

A Clark County traffic systems technician walked toward the sound of gunfire, capturing chaotic moments blocks from the Mandalay Bay hotel

A Clark County traffic systems technician's video captured law enforcement officers urging people to run and keep their heads down as several bursts of rapid gunfire were unleashed from a nearby high-rise hotel Sunday in a mass shooting at a Las Vegas concert

Raymond Page recorded the chaotic escape as concert-goers rushed from the Route 91 Harvest Festival. Page stopped to help several people during the 10-minute recording, which captures anguished voices, the harrowing sound of gunfire and the urgent shouts from officers as they tried to guide people to safety and medical help.

Page had been working on Las Vegas Boulevard when he heard the first rounds of gunfire.

"Keep your head down, run that way," an officer can be heard repeating as the crowd passed.

"Run, don't walk," another person yelled.

"It was almost like it was a movie, as it was happening," Page, 52, told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

As Page walked with one of the victims who said he suffered a gunshot to the arm, Page stopped to ask an officer where he could find emergency medical help.

"Take him east, they're not going to come this way," an officer ordered.

Fifty-eight people were killed in the shooting and hundreds more were injured.

The gunman, identified as 64-year-old Stephen Paddock, appears to have lived a low-key, private life, according to investigators, who are attempting to determine a motive.
