Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Metro Police say items left by a person who shouted that there was a bomb in the Trump International Hotel contained no explosives. A suspect is in custody.

A person walked into the hotel and left a large suitcase and a large duffel bag near the hotel’s concierge area, according to police.

“Then he began to yell there was a bomb in the building and that people had better get out,” according to Metro Capt. Dori Koren, who briefed the media. Another briefing might come later this afternoon.

The suspect then left the hotel and got in a taxi. Two bomb threats were phoned into the hotel 15 minutes later.

ARMOR units were called to the scene, and video from the scene showed a robot that was sent to the front of the Trump International Hotel Las Vegas.

The Trump hotel is just off the Strip, between the Fashion Show Las Vegas mall and the newly opened Resorts World.

Fashion Show Drive is currently closed between Las Vegas Boulevard and Sammy Davis Jr. Drive.

Guests at the Trump said they weren’t told what was going on.
