Shooting On Las Vegas Strip Leaves 2 Dead

LAS VEGAS (December 15, 2012)--A man and a woman are dead after a shooting at a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip that police say was a murder-suicide.

Las Vegas Police Lt. Ray Steiber said the shooting happened at around 8:30 p.m. Friday at the Excalibur hotel-casino.

Steiber said the man shot the woman near the front entrance of the high-rise hotel and then turned the gun on himself.

He was found dead at the scene.

Steiber said the woman was taken to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Neither the gunman nor the victim was identified, but Steiber said the woman worked as a vendor at the hotel's concierge desk, where tourists can get show tickets and restaurant reservations.

He said the relationship between the two wasn't immediately clear.

No one else was injured.
