A “rolling gun battle” in Las Vegas has killed at least three people and injured several others, local news sources are reporting.
The “rolling gun battle” in Las Vegas occurred early this morning in the Strip area, and initial reports indicate that a multi-vehicle crash resulted from the gunfire. One local news source has scant information on the fatal shots or what may have precipitated it, but says:
“Metro Police say three people are dead and at least three more injured from a shooting on Las Vegas Boulevard near Flamingo Road … Flamingo is closed between I-15 and Audrie Street. Las Vegas Blvd. is closed from Caesars Palace to Paris. Drivers should use Spring Mountain Road, Desert Inn Road, Tropicana Avenue, or Harmon Avenue instead of Flamingo and Koval Lane.”

At least one account of the Vegas rolling gun battle indicates the shooting may have been between moving vehicles, and a tweet read:
