Cops in standoff after fatal Las Vegas bus shooting

Part of the Las Vegas Strip was shut down Saturday as police investigated a shooting that sent at least one person to the hospital.

One person was killed and another injured during a bus shooting Saturday outside the Cosmopolitan in Las Vegas - leading to standoff with the barricaded shooter on the Strip.

Police surrounded a bus as they investigated the shooting, Officer Larry Hadfield told CNN. "Both were transported to the trauma center and one is deceased". There is no evidence of a second shooter and it is not an active shooter situation as was initially reported. The victim has been taken to UMC, condition unknown.


We're now investigating a shooting that occurred on S. Las Vegas Blvd. near Harmon. Police do not believe there are additional suspects and the matter is not being treated as an active shooter situation. "Please avoid the area". The armed suspect is now alone on the bus, and police are working to get him into custody, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said.

This is a developing story.
