On Sunday, a deadly event occurred at a Las Vegas Strip bar which appears to have nothing to do with the prior gunfire at the Sahara. The event took place inside PT’s Place, which is located near Decatur Boulevard and Charleston Boulevard. According to police accounts, the incident occurred around 3 a.m., as a man approached the victim and shot him fatally before fleeing. The event was reported by KLAS, a local television station and the report stated that the two males did not seem to have related before the shooting.
The authorities have not disclosed any information about the victim or his fatal wounds. The deceased was in his late twenties and thought to be of Hispanic descent according to the report. A post-mortem is expected to be performed soon while the police investigation is ongoing, and they are analyzing the surveillance recording videos from PT’s Place.
