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.
