MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A suspected gunman who barricaded himself inside a bus on the Las Vegas strip has surrendered peacefully.

The standoff began a few hours ago after a shooting in the heart of the Strip near the Cosmopolitan hotel-casino. At least two people were taken to the hospital. One of them has died. Doctors say the second victim will be OK.

“It’s as if they’re shooting a movie, they’ve shut down Las Vegas Boulevard, and because — and we haven’t seen anything slowing down,” he said. “The SWAT team members are still in place. A lot of folks I’ve talked to from Minnesota just wondering what’s going on but you don’t see this in downtown Minneapolis very often.”

According to Rosen, the suspect walked off the bus, hands in the air and was handcuffed without incident.

Police believe the gunman acted alone. They have also ruled out terrorism or any relationship to an earlier robbery near the Bellagio Hotel.
