Sands Corp. offers $50K reward for information leading to arrest of Sunset Park shooter


The Las Vegas Sands Corporation has offered a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Anthony Wrobel.  The 42-year-old is accused of shooting and killing Venetian executive Mia Banks during a work outing Sunday.

Hector Rodriguez was also shot and wounded by Wrobel.  He is in the hospital and in stable condition.

Metro Police and the FBI held a news conference Tuesday to discuss additional details about the double shooting at Sunset Park. 

According to Metro homicide detectives, Wrobel planed the attack and targeted his victims.  Metro released numerous photos of Wrobel in case his appearance has changed since the shooting.

Wrobel worked at the Venetian Hotel as a dealer. He held that position for 15 year, Metro said.

On Sunday, Venetian employees and executives gathered at Sunset Park for a company picnic.  During the event, Wrobel arrived at the park in a dark purple and black Dodge Charger.

He parked his vehicle and walked up to some of the employees and asked where the executives were sitting.  Wrobel was pointed to a gazebo area of the park.

Without any warning, Wrobel immediately pulled a handgun and shot the first victim at point blank range. He then turned and shot the second victim before running back to his car and fleeing the park, Metro said.

Both victims were taken to the hospital, but Mia Banks died.

Witnesses police spoke with said Wrobel had a mustache the day of the shooting.  He could have since changed his appearance, Metro said.

Wrobel’s car was immediately located in a garage in Terminal 3 at McCarran International Airport.

If anyone makes contact with Wrobel, they’re asked to immediately contact police.
