1 injured in shooting at Miracle Mile Shops on Strip

Updated October 12, 2020 - 12:02 am

A man was injured in a shooting Sunday night at the Miracle Mile Shops on the Strip, according to Las Vegas police.

Lt. Brian Boxler said officers were called to the shops at Planet Hollywood Resort around 7:27 p.m. in response to a shooting that sent one man to the hospital with unknown injuries. The man is expected to survive, he said.

Boxler said police believe the shooter ran north on Las Vegas Boulevard, but “this is NOT considered an active shooter at this time,” Boxler said in a text message.

No arrests had been made as of late Sunday.

Sunday’s shooting is the latest in a wave of violence recently in the resort corridor. It also comes a day after a person was hospitalized after an attack by a group of people on the Strip.

Police said last week that they are making progress. They’ve added patrols, enhanced partnerships with Strip gaming properties and implemented a pair of enforcement operations aimed at pulling guns off people on the boulevard.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo said in a television interview last week that the Metropolitan Police Department is using covert officers to intermingle with the crowds. This includes tactical units involving SWAT and Homeland Security saturation team personnel patrolling in late-night hours.
