Shooting Reported on Las Vegas Strip near Sahara Avenue

A black female theft suspect and a security guard were wounded in a shooting outside the Bonanza Gift Shop on the corner of Las Vegas Boulevard and Sahara Avenue.

Las Vegas Metro Police say Mercedes Cage, 35, allegedly stole a sweater from the gift shop and fired nine rounds from a handgun when two security officers, Adolfo Rivera and Juan Hernandez, approached her.

Officer Larry Hadfield, a department spokesman, said both the woman and the Rivera were were injured by gunfire, police were investigating how the shooting happened, and no other suspects were sought.

The shooting is the latest bit of violence in what’s become an almost daily occurrence on the Las Vegas Strip. It’s become virtually impossible to walk anywhere on the strip without putting your life in danger, and our local politicians, Sheriff Joe Lombardo, and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police do almost nothing to stop the gangs and homeless drug addicts who have taken over and declared war on the public.

This is what you face walking down the Las Vegas Strip

When will this end?

Since the start of the year, we’ve had several shootouts in the middle of our roads, an off-duty cop killed by a homeless addict, a shooting inside Downtown Grand, a mass shooting at an illegal blacks-only club, a murder inside the Rio, a shooting inside Bally’s, a housekeeper killed at Bally’s, a man beaten almost to death for not wearing a mask inside a Las Vegas storea man stabbed by a homeless man inside the Paris Casino, a man shot 11 times by a homeless addict in Chinatown, and countless assaults inside Casinos and throughout Las Vegas

  1. Another murder down town- outside Golden Nugget. They had one outside 4 Queens about 2 years again. No Suspects in that one. Happy Juneteenth!!

  2. They are everywhere openly soliciting drugs. I remember having a really bad night, down $14,000 and had a black drug addict vagrant sit down next to me, smelling like he shit himself, start selling a vacation scam, and put his foot on me. like this is my turf .. get out. I reported to Cesaers security they refused to remove him. saying how do I know he’s a drug addict and talking about my “voice tone” . I told them I lost $14,000 at your Casino tonight and I’m upset remove him or I don’t come back .They said ok so what .. ok .. never lost money there again.

    But it doesn’t matter were you go anymore. The only place I could find to drink without looking at them is the bar in the Delano and that’s because it’s only a Hotel .. Even in the “High Limit” room they come in and stare you up….

    Vegas must get rid of these people and restore the Strip .. I don’t care what they build .. it won’t matter if you allow those people to loiter in your environment..
