Las Vegas is considering imposing a curfew for those under the age of 21 after a series of downtown shootings.
Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman said Tuesday that she and other city officials are studying the possibility of such a curfew after gunmen opened fire on two separate occasions in less than a month in a popular tourist area.
According to Fox5, she made the announcement a day after a man shot and injured another man right outside the Fremont Street Experience in downtown Vegas early Monday morning.
“[The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department] and our City Marshals are committed to increasing the law enforcement presence,” Goodman tweeted the next morning. “Our City Attorney will prosecute violators to the fullest extent and we are investigating a curfew for those under the age of 21.”
The ages of the men involved in the Independence Day shooting have not been released and the suspect remains at large. However, the shooter in the earlier shooting is only 16 years old.
The teenager allegedly shot and killed a 23-year-old man and injured a bystander at the Fremont Street Experience on June 19, Fox5 reported.
Las Vegas already has a curfew of 10pm on weekdays and midnight on weekends for those under the age of 18.
