The Latest: Vegas police told to open mass shooting records

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS -

(AP) - The Latest on a Nevada Supreme Court ruling that Las Vegas police must release to the media records about the Oct. 1 mass shooting that killed 58 people and injured hundreds (all times local):
  
3 p.m.
  
Las Vegas police say it will take time to release records that include officer body camera videos, 911 recordings, evidence logs and interview reports about the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
  
It won't happen Friday, despite a Nevada Supreme Court ruling that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department should make public its records about the Oct. 1 shooting that killed 58 people and injured hundreds in an outdoor concert crowd.
  
Department spokeswoman Carla Alston says officials plan to meet Monday to determine how to release the material.
  
Attorneys for the department and media companies are talking about the volume of records and the cost of making them public.
  
Media including The Associated Press sued for access to the documents to shed light on the investigation of the shooting.

The Nevada Supreme Court has rejected a bid by police to delay the release of records about the Oct. 1 mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip, including officer body camera videos, 911 recordings, evidence logs and written interview reports.
  
Five of seven justices said Friday that the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department should make public the records sought by several media entities to shed light on the investigation of the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.
  
Fifty-eight people died and hundreds were wounded and injured when a gunman opened fire from the high-rise Mandalay Bay resort into an outdoor concert crowd.
  
Department lawyers argue that the investigation is not complete, and that it will be too time-consuming and costly to quickly comply with the public records requests.
