Las Vegas shooting at the "New York New York" casino

 A gunman opened fire at the New York New York casino in Las Vegas early Friday, leaving three wounded.

Las Vegas shooting at the "New York New York" casino An armed man entered the New York-New York casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, early Friday, opening fire inside the casino, wounding three of the people inside, before being tackled down by the patrons and security officers of the casino. The police has corrected an earlier report saying that four people were wounded in the shooting, which took place a little after midnight on July 6th.

 According to police reports, the man, who is believed to be in his early 50's, calmly entered the crowded casino, pulled out a gun and randomly begun shooting at the patrons within. None of the wounded sustained life-threatening injuries, and all three of them are currently undergoing treatment in a local hospital.

 The police claims this is the first incident of this kind, where a man obviously just snapped and entered the first casino he saw, and start shooting. Surveillance tapes are being analyzed by the local police, but the casino was open for business at 6:00am, informing customers that it's business as usual.

 The New York-New York casino is owned by MGM Mirage Inc. (NYSE:MGM). Authorities confirmed that the gunman, although local, is not an employee or a guest at the casino-hotel.
