Las Vegas police released more than 1,200 pages of witness interviews and officer reports Wednesday that detail the harrowing moments after a mass shooting that killed 58 in October.

The documents were the second wave of items released by police after the Nevada Supreme Court ordered the department to provide the materials after media outlets, including the Los Angeles Times, sued for them.

The article goes on to say:

Two weeks ago, the department released several hours of body camera footage — including video of the first officers to breach the room where Stephen Paddock had been firing down from the 58th floor of a hotel into a crowd of 22,000 at the Route 91 Harvest country music festival Oct. 1.

A detective — identified as Detective D. Jappe in the transcripts — asks the victim to describe what happened after hearing the gunfire, described as a sounding like fireworks.

“And then I would say, a couple of seconds later, um, I fell to the ground and I couldn’t feel my arm,” the victim said. “So I just kept yelling, ‘I can’t feel my arm. I can’t feel my arm. I can’t feel my arm.’ Um, and then my aunt was with me and she was just like — You’re fine. Get up. Jason’s performing (country western artist Jason Aldean). What are you doing on the ground? Like and then she saw blood coming from my arm.”
