Two Dead after Apparent Murder-Suicide at Las Vegas Hotel

A man shot and fatally wounded a woman, then killed himself Friday at the Excalibur hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip, sending many patrons fleeing in fear, The Associated Press reported. It happened at about 8:30 p.m. near the high-rise hotel's front entrance, Las Vegas Metro Police Lt. Ray Steiber said. The man died at the scene of an apparent self-inflicted gunshot wound after shooting the woman, who was a vendor at Excalibur's concierge desk, Steiber said. The woman was later pronounced dead at a local hospital. Neither the gunman nor the victim was identified, and Steiber said the relationship between the two wasn't immediately clear. The shootings took place at the hotel's front desk, which was busy with the National Finals Rodeo and other events in town. Patrons scattered at the first sound of gunfire; no one else was wounded.
