As Las Vegas continues to grow and heal in the wake of last year's mass shooting, a new video shows the actions of shooter Stephen Paddock leading up to the horrific mass shooting.

The New York Times has released surveillance footage that shows Paddock's actions inside of the Mandalay Bay hotel-casino before the mass shooting that claimed 58 lives. He is seen gambling on the casino floor, buying items from the hotel gift shop, and tipping bellhops for wheeling large bags of luggage up to his suite.
