LAS VEGAS — One person was killed after a man on a bus on the Las Vegas strip began shooting at passengers without warning Saturday, and the suspect barricaded himself in the vehicle for hours in a standoff that shutdown the popular tourist destination, NBC News reports.
The suspect surrendered shortly after 3 p.m. — more than four hours after the 10:48 a.m. shooting near the Cosmopolitan Hotel.
A stretch of Las Vegas Boulevard from the Flamingo hotel south to Harmon Avenue was shut down and area hotels were not letting guests leave through front doors. The shooting prompted the Cosmopolitan to initially tell its guests to shelter in place. For the full story, click here.
