A male juvenile shot four people at a tourist attraction on the Las Vegas Strip over the weekend, authorities said Monday.
The unnamed youngster was arrested on multiple charges for shooting at Circus Circus Hotel and Casino’s Metrodome.
The alleged assailant is charged with attempted murder, battery with a deadly weapon, discharging a firearm where person is endangered, and minor in possession of a firearm
The shooting took place during a “physical confrontation” involving “a group of juveniles and young adults,” police said.
Las Vegas police have blamed much of the recent uptick in violent crime on The Strip on gang members and out-of-town visitors to Las Vegas. The number of violent incidents has apparently decreased in recent weeks, police said this weekend.
Police did not say if the alleged shooter was affiliated with a gang.
