Gunman barricades himself in bus in Las Vegas

A gunman barricaded himself inside a bus today along the Las Vegas Strip after a shooting that left one person dead, officials said.

There is an active hunt for the shooting suspect.

Police tweeted that a section of South Las Vegas Boulevard remained closed "due to a barricade subject on bus", adding: "Please avoid the area".

The suspects in that incident wore black suits or tuxedos, police Lieutenant Carlos Hank told the Las Vegas Journal-Review. A SWAT team is on scene on the boulevard.




Dozens of police cars surrounded the double-decker bus, which was wrapped in advertisements.

One victim was brought to University Medical Center of Southern Nevada's trauma center in an unknown condition, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

A social media post showed what appeared to be a person in a pig mask outside a jewellery store after the robbery, but police said they could not verify the photo's authenticity. The strip is shut down between Flamingo Road and Harmon Avenue. No further information was available on the shooting.
