Gambling continues after 5:45 a.m. shooting at Bally’s in Las Vegas

One person was killed Monday morning in a shooting at Drai’s, an after-hours nightclub in Las Vegas inside Bally’s casino. Three others were injured, including the shooter, who is in custody.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that the man began shooting after he was denied entry to the club around 5:45 a.m. He was apparently subdued by other patrons after he began firing.

The Associated Press described the scene: “Gambling continued in the casino after the shooting, but yellow crime scene tape stretched around several banks of slot machines outside the nightclub. Debris littered the floor as uniformed casino and police officers investigated.”

Bally’s is on the Las Vegas Strip, where another shooting led to a car wreck in February, killing three people. The shooter in Monday morning’s incident has not been identified.
