Three people were shot near the Las Vegas Strip on Friday morning.

Two of the victims, both women, have died. The third victim, a male, is in stable condition.

It started as a fight on the 3rd floor of the parking garage for the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood on Las Vegas Boulevard around 1:20 a.m. The fight fight reportedly involved two females and four males.

The shooting itself happened near the intersection of Polaris and Harmon Avenue.

One woman was left lying in the street and the other woman and man fled to The Cosmopolitan hotel-casino.

Security at the hotel-casino tried to help the woman, but she died. The shooter is still on the loose.

The Clark County coroner will release name and ages of women after relatives have been notified. 


A shooting near the strip leaves one dead, one extremely critical, and another barely able to speak to police. Just got new info.
