At least two people were killed and six injured after a series of stabbings outside a Las Vegas casino Thursday, police department officials said.
Three of the victims are in critical condition, Dori Koren, captain of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, told reporters.
“The others appear to be stable, but we’ll update as soon as we have more information,” he said.
The scene is under control and everything appears to be safe, Koren said. He added that the weapon used was a large kitchen knife and they had a suspect in custody.
The incident happened just before noon on the 3100 block of South Las Vegas Boulevard. Koren said it was too early to determine a motive.
“Our thoughts today are with the victims of this senseless attack on the Strip,” Clark County officials said in a statement posted to Facebook. “We are grateful for the quick response from our Clark County Fire Department, LVMPD and other first responders.”
