A rather vital rooftop video camera went dark during the 1 October shooting which raises more questions than answers
LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) — A surveillance and security expert who has worked at Mandalay Bay for 14-years told investigators of the 1 October shooting that a rooftop security video camera an a camera in the mall area were disabled at the time of the shooting and that the timestamps may be up to 30-minutes off.
The MGM employee showed up at work around 9 a.m. the morning after the massacre where he was tasked with checking the Pelco System video camera footage.
“My first priority was checking […] cameras,” he sated to police. “So my main concern was usually we have roof cameras that are usually typically to always lose video. So, I proceeded to go check on cameras in our Pelco System and one of the rooftop cameras [was] out at the time.”
The employee told investigator that that particular camera would have been “vital” for security to see.
“[…] it happened to be out,” the techie explained. “It faces east […] which happened to be the front.”
