(Newser) – Employees of the Venetian, a resort and casino on the Las Vegas Strip, were at a company picnic at a Vegas park Sunday night when one of the hotel's employees allegedly walked up to a table and opened fire, killing a 50-year-old woman and critically injuring a man. The suspect, 42-year-old Anthony Wrobel, got away, and police found his car parked at McCarran International Airport. They say the incident was a "targeted act of workplace violence," per the Las Vegas Review-Journal. One of the victims was a Venetian executive, and KSNV reports multiple hotel executives were at the table where Wrobel allegedly opened fire. (Read more shooting stories.)
