Las Vegas police have taken one suspect in to custody and are on the search for more after armed robbers wearing pig masks burglarized a high-end retail store at the Bellagio Resort & Casino early Saturday morning, according to multiple outlets.
Police were called to the resort around 12:50 a.m., Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Michael Rodriguez said – in response to false 911 reports of an active shooter, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported.
Upon investigation, Rodriguez said there was only one shot fired – isolated to inside the store, which was closed at the time, the Las Vegas Review Journal reported. No one was injured.
“Currently investigating burglary at @bellagio,” Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department tweeted at 2:13 a.m. “Initial reports indicated there was an active shooter’ which was false. NO injuries.”
A Las Vegas police spokesman confirming that the store in question was a Rolex store, located in the basement of the high-end casino, the New York Daily News reported. A preliminary investigation suggested three robbers used a sledgehammer to break in to the property, the spokesman said.
