Shooting During Stellar Award Weekend in Las Vegas…Shooter Is Still At Large

It is advised that you stay away from Las Vegas Boulevard, or The Strip, as police continue to investigate a shooting that just took place in front of the Cosmopolitan Hotel.

There is 1 dead and 3 injured about an hour after an armed robbery at a high end jewelry vendor inside the Bellagio Hotel, where it is said that three fashionably dressed masked men fled with only one captured and taken into custody. At least one was wearing a pig mask and carrying a sledgehammer (seen in photo below).

Stephen, a Stellar Award attendee, from South Carolina posted the actual lock down with other hotel guests in the lobby where nobody was allowed to leave for quite some time. He reported live on Facebook that he is in fact safe but of course was still in amazement concerning this most recent occurrence. Stephen stated that the shooter was on a double decker bus and then fled inside a Casino.
