1 killed in hotel room, police confirm
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Las Vegas Metro Police are investigating a fatal shooting at the Mirage on the Las Vegas Strip that killed one man and injured two women.
The shooting took place in a hotel room around 8:30 p.m. Thursday. said LVMPD Captain Dori Koren early Friday morning.
The 8 News Now I team first reported the information through sources Thursday night. Officers arrived at the scene within a minute of calling 911, Koren said.
There was an argument in the room between four people who all knew each other, Koren said. A person in the room shot the three others, Koren said. The shooter then left the room.
The injured shooting victims were taken to the UMC hospital, Koren said. They were in critical condition as of Friday morning.
“We take any kind of extreme violence in our city very seriously,” Koren said. “You’ve seen it in all the investigations we’re conducting. We are confident that we will solve this case.”
Police were looking for the suspect Friday morning. Investigators isolated various areas of the hotel as part of their investigation, Koren said.
The shooting prompted hotel security and subway police to restrict access to the property. Videos from guests showed police entering the hotel and casino with shields.
Police did not release a photo of the suspect but said at least one person who was in the room had ties to the area. Koren said there was no danger to the public.
Security allowed guests to return to the property around 10:50pm
