Three people are dead and several others have been injured after an early morning shootout on the Las Vegas Strip, reports The Associated Press.
The incident occurred around 4:30 a.m. Thursday (Feb. 21) when individuals in a black Range Rover fired shots at a Maserati, which led to a fiery crash at the intersection of Flamingo and Las Vegas boulevards. The popular area is surrounded by several casinos on the Strip such as the Bellagio, Caesars Palace and Bally’s.
In all, five vehicles were involved in the crash, including a taxi.
The Maserati driver, the taxi driver and a passenger in the cab were killed. The Range Rover was gone when police arrived.
Four people were taken to University Medical Center. Hospital spokeswoman Danita Cohen said three were treated and released, while one person remained in the hospital. Their condition was not released.
The intersection is expected to be closed for hours to complete the investigation.
