Part Of Las Vegas Strip Closed For Shooting Investigation

Police said Saturday afternoon that the situation was not an active shooter situation.

USA Today reports that one person is dead and another was wounded after they were shot on a two-story bus located on the Las Vegas Strip.

One victim has been taken to the hospital in unknown condition.

A shooting shut down part of the Las Vegas Strip near the Cosmopolitan and the Paris Hotel Casino.

At least three well-dressed masked burglars, carrying sledgehammers, smashed their way into a high-end jewelry store early Saturday at one of Las Vegas' most luxurious hotels.

One woman - who only identified herself as Anita - said she was walking on a skybridge to the MGM Grand from the Cosmopolitan when she saw the police activity. The suspect is barricaded on a bus, and tactical teams and negotiators are on the scene on Las Vegas Boulevard. "There is no credible information that there is a second suspect", Officer Larry Hadfield told CNN. Officials have closed Las Vegas Boulevard between Flamingo Road and Harmon Avenue.

Cops shut down blocks of the Strip after the shooting.
