Two people are dead and another seriously hurt after a shooting around 1:30am in Las Vegas, and the suspect is still at large, Fox 5 Vegas. The incident started with a fight on the third floor of a parking garage for the Miracle Mile Shops about 10 minutes prior to the shooting on the opposite side of the Las Vegas Strip. A vehicle with a man and woman inside, both of whom were shot, was driven into the Cosmopolitan hotel-casino's valet area; they were taken to a hospital, where the woman died. Another woman was found lying in the middle of the street with a gunshot wound; she also died at the same hospital.

Surveillance video at the Miracle Mile Shops shows a scuffle between the three people who were shot and another group that was broken up by security guards, the AP reports. A man with a gun can be seen entering a 2015 Toyota Camry after the fight; police say someone fired from that Camry into a Hyundai. One of the fatally injured women was driving the Hyundai; it rolled to stop in the valet area with her slumped behind the wheel. Las Vegas police say the suspected shooter is a tall, thin black man in his 20s, who was wearing a Chicago Bulls cap, white T-shirt, blue jeans, and white athletic shoes. They are on the lookout for a light blue or gray 2015 Camry. (Read more Las Vegas stories.)
