Las Vegas Strip Shooting: One Dead, One Wounded 

Part of the Las Vegas Strip was reportedly shut down on Saturday after a shooter killed one person and wounded another.

The suspect was barricaded inside a bus, as police and tactical teams rushed to the scene and surrounded the vehicle, according to CNN.

“This incident is being treated as a barricade at this time. There is no credible information that there is a second suspect,” Officer Larry Hadfield told CNN.

The Las Vegas police department tweeted at 1:23 p.m. local time, “S. Las Vegas Blvd. between Flamingo and Harmon remains closed due to a barricade subject on bus. Please avoid the area.” At 2:25 p.m. the account tweeted, “North/southbound traffic on Las Vegas Blvd continues to be closed while we work to peacefully resolve this ongoing barricade.”
