LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– Metro police are on the scene of a shooting involving a security officer in the northwest part of the valley Thursday.
Police were called at around 2:40 p.m for a disturbance inside the Santa Fe Station Hotel and Casino located at 4949 N. Rancho Dr.
When police arrived they saw a security officer was shot multiple times.
The victim was taken to UMC with non-life-threatening injuries.
Other security guards were able to detain the suspect. No word on any charges.
“In this instance, they were able to take what potentially was a violent suspect and detain him immediately and wait for the police to get here, so that should give citizens a real sense of comfort to know that in an establishment like this they are doing their best to provide for security,” said Lt. William Matchko of LVMPD.
Casino operations appear to be back to normal as this investigation continues.
