Was that done in this case. Did anyone use their mobiles to determine where the sound came from?
That would only be possible if someone was using a stereo microphone (an external device, cell phones, as far as I know don't have stereo microphones) or if two (or more) people were recording at the same time, we know their exact positions, we have a time stamp on the video and the videos are synchronized.
Sergeant Joshua Bitsko and Officer Dave Newton of the K9-unit had been training dogs when they heard the call.
Joshua Bitsko: So we jump in our cars and hop on the freeway and we were there probably within five minutes.
Detective Matthew Donaldson was doing paperwork at headquarters. He sped nine miles to the Mandalay Bay. In the chaos, he had to run the last few blocks. His cowboy boots rubbed his feet raw.
Matthew Donaldson: I took my boots off. I just threw 'em in the casino. That was slowing me down. I was faster barefoot and I was gonna be more effective barefoot.
Bill Whitaker: Did you go to the window? Did you look out?
Joshua Bitsko: No. Because I know that S.W.A.T. had deployed snipers also. So I didn't wanna put my silhouette in front of a window-- because communication was still horrendous at that point
Bill Whitaker: Detective Donaldson, you came in and went through to the other room.
Matthew Donaldson: Yeah.
Bill Whitaker: What did you see?
Matthew Donaldson: It was still very much in my brain there's 50 other dudes in here somewhere. You know, we were still clearing that room, the curtains, moving the curtains. I wanted to make sure somebody wasn't hiding between the windows and the curtains. It's a very small bedroom. Cleared the bathroom, cleared the shower. Came back out. They had to breach the other door on the other side. And then -- once that scene was static it was -- it was essentially a crime scene. It was, like, stop what you're doing. Get out.
