LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Latest on the release of 911 audio and officer body camera video from the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history (all times local):

4:30 p.m.

One Las Vegas police officer's body camera captured him helping terrified concertgoers duck rapid gunfire and then carrying a wounded woman to safety before driving her to a hospital following the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

A 28-minute recording among some 10 hours of select video clips released by police Wednesday provides another glimpse of the horror and heroism that unfolded after a gunman fired from an upper floor of a Las Vegas Strip resort into an open-air concert, killing 58 people and wounding hundreds.

It was the sixth periodic release of documents, video and audio collected by authorities following the Oct. 1 shooting at the Route 91 Harvest Festival on the Las Vegas Strip.

"You gotta go! We're in the firing zone! He can see us from here!" the unidentified officer tells people near the stage as the concert turned to chaos under barrages of gunfire.

1:20 p.m.

Video from police body cameras show some of the first officers to respond to the Las Vegas shooting directing people to take cover, arming themselves and gathering in groups to try to find the gunman.

One video released by police Wednesday shows an officer and his partner taking a woman to a hospital, where wounded people were being loaded on gurneys outside.

Another officer is heard saying, "It's coming from the Mandalay Bay!" Bursts of rapid gunfire are heard and the unidentified officer directs people to duck behind a police vehicle.

It marks the sixth batch of information released after media organizations, including The Associated Press, sued for video, audio and documents from the Oct. 1 shooting that killed 58 people and wounded hundreds.

Police and the FBI have declined to comment on any of the information.

12:35 p.m.

Police have released video from body cameras worn by officers trying to find a gunman opening fire from a Las Vegas Strip resort and help victims wounded during the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history.

The footage was made public Wednesday. It marks the sixth batch of information released after media organizations, including The Associated Press, sued for video, audio and documents from the Oct. 1 shooting.

Police and the FBI have declined to comment on any of the information.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, the elected head of the Police Department, has said the investigation hasn't identified a motive for the shooting that killed 58 people and injured hundreds of others.

Authorities say gunman Stephen Paddock acted alone and killed himself before police reached him.
