so many people around here are calling him a hero. he approached the door. the gunman shooting 200 rounds into the door remarkably he survived. he's recovering well tonight. he is someone that we want to get to know in these next few days. they are starting to board up be windows. that's the first time we're seeing them make some progress in terms of the exterior. we're talking about the inside of the hotel. this is the first look inside. it's eerie and chilling. just walking the hallways myself along with our photographer, walking into one of rooms and this was on the 22nd floor. very similar this room to stephen paddock's. you can see the window there. this is the similar set up that he had on sunday night. there's a big conference going
on at the mandalay bay hotel. it's a crime scene. there's a major conference hosted by a heavy weight silicon valley company. their ceo telling us this statement. i know there's no easy or right answer in those circumstances. we had over 3200 people here yesterday. today we have more than 4100 people attending this event. we felt given the range of consideration, this was the best thing to do. it is difficult inside that hotel from all those people here. it's very quiet in that hotel. maybe 80% empty. not many gamblers here. she is one of the victims here. the mother of two from marin county. lives in novato. grew up in san ramon.
so many people memorializing her as well as the other victims. >> we have grand children. sending them to school is a little scary right now. >> i look forward to how they honor the people that have perished as well as the people that have been injured. >> reporter: that is the plan moving forward. how they honor the victims and survivors. we'll send it back to you in the bay area. >> okay. thank you so much. our coverage on this developing story continues online at nbcbayarea.com. there you can get the latest information and see new video from inside the mandalay bay hotel suite where the gunman fired those shots. this is before someone stayed in that exact room about a year ago. something deadly is lurking in the waters off san francisco bay. it's killing thousands of sharks. scientists are not sure how to stop it from spreading to other
sea life including the fish you eat. >> what's behind the shark deaths? >> reporter: the france bsan fr bay is home to a complex ecosystem. the wildlife is interconnected. even though this stretches 1600 square miles. when one suffer, others can too. here along the water front scientists believe there's a deadly threat that lies beneath. hidden in the beauty of the bay is a cool mystery that's leaving thousands of sharks disoriented or dead. in just five months an estimated 1 to 2,000 sharks died in the bay. >> i'm concerned whether this is
going to spread. are we going to see this up and down the coast of california. >> the answer is we don't know. >> i think that's the scariest part. >> reporter: field work on sharks is rare. he named his research partner in san diego for a first hand look. >> right now we're heading to a hot spot. we have a leopard shark right here. tths part of the research on the movement. the team takes measurements, blood samples. the sharks eyes are covered to reduce stress. >> if we don't find out, then there's nothing we can do about it. >> reporter: sharks aren't naturally buoyant.
unless they are actively swimming their bodies sink. sharks infected that die in deep water may never wash up on shore. >> the sharks you see are a small fraction of the sharks that are dying in the bay. >> reporter: dr. mark should know. he's the one keeping count. he's the one man science team trying to find out what's preying on california sharks. he believes he's turning the tide. his research points to a parasi parasite. it sneaks new through a shark's nose and slowly eats away at the brain. this year it's not just sharks washing ashore. 500 bat raies. hundreds of striped bass. 50 smoothhounds sharks and 100 halibut all dead. >> it's possible the parasite is spreading? >> yeah, i think that's a
reasonable assumption. >> reporter: investigating the cause isn't actually his job. he's officially in charge of assessing the health of white sea bass for california's fish and wildlife. he's opinion researching shark deaths during his spare time and he does it from home. he examines shark tissue on his dining room table. >> probably have to wash this cloth before thanksgiving. >> reporter: he studies bacteria samples in his kitchen and does shark necropses on his patio. >> different types of sharks and fish are getting infected. the center of the research effort to find out why is here in your backyard? >> fish and wildlife we're spread pretty thin. >> reporter: gabe oversees the budget and accounting. he's a deputy director and the
agency said he could best answer our questions. >> right now california is relying on a guy who is checking shark tissue samples in his dining room. doesn't that seem strange? >> i have no knowledge of how his day-to-day work operations work. i can't answer that. sgh you're not aware he's doing any of the science in his living room? >> i didn't know that. >> in his kitchen? in his backyard? >> no. >> not at all? >> no. >> our understanding is there isn't any funding for that specific thing? >> we'll have to get back to you on that. >> they did. it turns out the agency dedicates zero dollars to researching these shark deaths. the legislature governor could approve additional funds but unless that happens the department says it's putting resources elsewhere like other higher risk wildlife. they are some of the most
abundant sharks off the california coast. that makes them canaries in a bay area coal mine. >> when they die and wash ashore it's pretty obvious. we see it. what about the other species that are getting sick and sinking to the bottom that we don't know about. some believe a fair amount of pollution washes into the bay after the rainfall. for now the state has no plans the put any money behind finding an answer. >> thank you very much. if you have a story you can give him a call or send an e-mail to the unit. still to come, did he want
food. water. internet. we need it to live. but what we don't need are surprises, like extra monthly fees. i see you, fee, played by legendary actress anjelica huston. you got me, mark. we just want fast internet for one, simple rate. for all the streaming and the shopping and the newsing, but most of all... for the this. internet for one everyday simple price and no extra monthly fees.
