Second Strip shooting this week!
The shooting comes just days after one person was shot early Thursday morning on Las Vegas Boulevard north of Flamingo Road, near the Flamingo Hotel & Casino and the Cromwell.
How many people need to be shot, stabbed or killed before Governor Sisolak says something about the violence?
For over a year now the Las Vegas Strip has seen unprecedented levels of violence. In fact, over the last two weeks, we have seen numerous unreported attacks by homeless drug addicts, a stabbing at the Cosmopolitan, the shooting at the Flamingo, criminal bike gangs attacking tourists and security guards, criminals trashing our infrastructure, BLM fighting with tourists, and a man being brutally beaten by a pack of thugs over a taco!
Just two hours before the shooting, another largescale fight broke out just down the street in front of Ballys.
