BREAKING: Vegas Strip shooting: At least 1 dead, gunman barricaded on bus, forcing partial closure of the Las Vegas strip...
One person has died during an ongoing standoff that has forced the partial closure of the Las Vegas strip as a gunman has barricaded himself inside a bus.
The standoff began after a shooting was reported on Las Vegas Boulevard in the heart of the Strip, near the Cosmopolitan hotel.
The suspect barricaded himself on a bus, causing a partial closure of the famous boulevard. Police negotiators and tactical teams are on the scene. Police say they do not believe there are any other suspects and they believe the shooter is on the bus.
"We had one single shooting incident with two victims. Both were transported to the trauma center and one is deceased," Officer Larry Hadfield told USA Today.
"This incident is being treated as a barricade at this time. There is no credible information that there is a second suspect," Officer Hadfield told CNN.
