Storyline

While on vacation in Las Vegas, television professional Ramsey Denison is walking through a parking lot when he sees a group of police officers abusing a handcuffed suspect. Shocked by what he's witnessing, he calls 911 to report police brutality -- only to find himself attacked by police and arrested. After reading a police report filled with lies to justify his arrest, Ramsey discovers that the video documenting his attack by LVMPD officers has conveniently gone missing. Shocked by the LVMPD's blatant lack of accountability, Ramsey begins investigating a terrifying pattern of police corruption and discovers that behind the shimmering surface of Las Vegas lies a police department with individuals willing to go to any lengths to cover up crimes. What Happened in Vegas exposes the truth surrounding three murder cases in which all of the victims were shot by cops. The film graphically portrays the shooting deaths of Trevon Cole, a small time drug dealer; Erik Scott, a decorated ex-army ... Written by Ramsey Denison

Trivia

Director Ramsey Denison began production on the movie shortly after being beaten up, arrested, and thrown in jail after he called 911 to report LVMPD officers for abusing a handcuffed stranger. "In a town where you can get beaten, arrested, and thrown in jail just for making a phone call to report police brutality," Ramsey said "I couldn't help but wonder what else the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department has gotten away with."

Not really about the shooting.
20 August 2018 | by jhoward-85324See all my reviews

The last 10 minutes of this movie scratch the surface of the horrific shooting and hit a couple of inconsistencies that _may_ have relevance but are not covered in detail.

The movie isn't bad - it covers a couple of very intriguing examples of police brutality and cover-ups. It also has a couple examples that are weaker and leave our key pieces of evidence that were obtained one the first page of a Google search.

It just has nothing to do with the shooting. Seems clear this was a piece designed to cover an election campaign and when that failed it was re-branded to get views. None of the valid points raised in the first hour and 40 minutes of this movie have anything to do with the massacre they put on the cover.
