LAS VEGAS – The Bellagio Hotel and Casino went on temporary lockdown early Saturday morning after shots were fired during a burglary at a high-end retail store inside, police said.
Las Vegas police said in a statement Saturday that a preliminary investigation suggested that at least three people entered the store and one of them fired gunshots. No one was injured and a suspect has been taken into custody.
An eyewitness, who was at the Bellagio at the time, told The Sun Online: “I saw a person in a pig mask holding what looked like a gun outside the Rolex in the Bellagio. He was yelling.”
Authorities said initial reports indicated there was an active shooter but that proved to be false. Parts of the casino property are closed as police investigate.
