LAS VEGAS - Three people are dead and three more injured after a shooting and multi-car crash on Las Vegas Boulevard near Flamingo Road.
Metro Police say a fight in a yet unnamed hotel led to the shooting on the Strip in front of Bally's Hotel and Casino early Thursday morning. The shooting set off a fiery multi-car crash involving six vehicles.
Metro Sgt. John Sheahan said police are looking for suspects in a black Range Rover with tinted windows and dark rims. Those suspects should be considered armed and dangerous. Sheahan said the people in the Range Rover were shooting at people in a Maserati, the driver of the Maserati was hit by gunfire and killed. The Maserati crashed into a taxi which caused it to burst into flames and explode killing the driver and passenger.
"There was a loud bang and I hear two other booms. I looked out my window at Caesars Palace ... and could see the fireball," said witness John Lamb.
Two of the three injured were transported to the hospital and are reported to be in critical condition. One of the injured was the passenger in the Maserati who was hit by gunfire.
The Las Vegas Strip is closed to pedestrians near the crash scene.
Flamingo Road is closed between I-15 and Audrie Street. Las Vegas Boulevard is closed from Caesars Palace to the Paris Hotel. Drivers should use Spring Mountain Road, Desert Inn Road, Tropicana Avenue, or Harmon Avenue instead of Flamingo Road.
Drivers should also utilize Maryland Parkway, Paradise Road, Koval, and I-15 instead of Las Vegas Boulevard. Please avoid the area of Flamingo and Las Vegas Boulevard.
