Two people killed in shooting outside Silver Nugget

North Las Vegas police are investigating shooting that left two people dead early Sunday morning outside the Silver Nugget.

About 4 a.m., officers responded to the report of a shooting in the Silver Nugget casino parking lot in the 2200 block of North Las Vegas Boulevard. Officers found two men suffering from gunshot wounds, spokeswoman Ann Cavaricci said Sunday.

Medical personnel pronounced the men dead on the scene, she said.

No one is in custody as of late Sunday night, and the incident remains under investigation.

In May, homicide detectives were called to the casino to investigate another fatal incident involving the officer-involved shooting of a Silver Nugget security guard who beat a fellow casino employee to death.

Anyone with information about the shooting is urged to North Las Vegas police at 702-633-9111 or Crime Stoppers at 702-702-385-5555.
