1 dead in Vegas attack; man surrenders
A gunman who had barricaded himself inside a bus Saturday along the Las Vegas Strip after a shooting that left one person dead and another wounded surrendered later in the afternoon, officials said.
The attack prompted a partial closure of the busy boulevard, but pedestrians had started returning to the normally busy area by late in the afternoon.
The standoff began about 11 a.m. after a shooting on a doubledecker bus stopped on Las Vegas Boulevard near the Cosmopolitan hotel-casino, in the heart of the Strip.
“He was on the bus. He was shooting people on the bus. He was just contained to that location. He never exited the bus,” Clark County Assistant Sheriff Tom Roberts said.
University Medical Center spokeswoman Danita Cohen said two people were taken to a hospital after the shooting. She said one died and the other was in fair condition.
