Man Opens Fire in Las Vegas Casino New York, New York

Las Vegas police say a man randomly shot at people in the New York-New York casino before he was tackled by patrons and police. Two women and two men are being treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The casino remains open. Police Department spokesman Ramon Denby says the shooter is believed to be a Las Vegas resident who was neither a guest nor an employee of the casino. The man entered the casino from the walkway connecting New York-New York to the M-G-M Grand a little before 1 a-m and randomly fired several times at people on the casino floor below. Of the shooter, Denby says, "it seems like some local guy who snapped and went to the hotel to do it." The two-thousand-room casino features a facade replicating the New York City skyline, with a knockoff of the Empire State Building, a 150-foot Statue of Liberty and a Coney Island-style roller coaster.
