Fear is sparked by a theft at the Fashion Show mall on the Las Vegas Strip.
KLAS LAS VEGAS — On Wednesday, there was no shooting or danger despite reports of gunshots and a gunman inside the Fashion Show mall near the Las Vegas Strip, a representative for the Las Vegas Metro police said.
Someone took something from a business within the mall at 4 p.m. and fled. That individual “damaged mall property” at some time, presumably by making a noise that others mistook for gunshots.
Police asserted there is no solid evidence to support witnesses’ claims that they heard what seemed to be gunshots in the mall.
Police near the mall detained the theft suspect.
In a another incident that occurred last Saturday and similarly raised anxiety on the Strip, a man is accused of throwing rocks at the MGM Grand hotel.
