Shooting on Las Vegas strip leaves 1 dead

Posted Марта 26, 2017

Police say a gunman has barricaded himself inside a bus along the Las Vegas Strip, prompting a partial closure of the busy boulevard.

The suspect was barricaded inside a bus, as police and tactical teams rushed to the scene and surrounded the vehicle, according to CNN.

Police have confirmed one person has been shot and transported to UMC Trauma.

"This is an ongoing situation", Hadfield said.

The incident resulted in the evacuation of the nearby Cosmopolitan hotel and a portion of the area (between Flamingo Road and Harmon Avenue) is being sealed off as negotiations with the suspect unfold.

A social media post showed what appeared to be a person in a pig mask outside a jewellery store after the robbery, but police said they could not verify the photo's authenticity. The victim's condition is unknown at this time. There is no evidence of a second shooter and it is not an active shooter situation as was initially reported.

Two blocks of the Las Vegas Strip were shut down, and hotel guests were ordered to stay in their rooms.
