The Texas deputy who first flagged the license plate on suspected Las Vegas killer Anthony Wrobel’s vehicle outside a freeway rest stop last week is in his first year on the force, a fellow deputy said Thursday. When the Oldham County Sheriff’s Office rookie radioed K9 deputy Taner Blackburn, 34, for backup and to tell him the Utah plate came back stolen, Blackburn told him to stay back until he got there. Wrobel, 42, is suspected of opening fire at Sunset Park on two casino executives during a company picnic for employees of The Venetian on April 15. The arrest put an end to a days long nationwide manhunt that included investigators from several local and federal agencies.
Las Vegas police were searching Monday for a Venetian employee suspected of opening fire at a company picnic Sunday night, leaving one woman dead and a man critically injured. The suspect has been identified as 42-year-old Anthony Wrobel. The shooting happened just before 6 p.m. Sunday at Sunset Park, near Eastern Avenue and Sunset Road, where the Strip resort employees were gathered for a company picnic. The victims were taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, where the woman, who was in her 50s, died. The man was in critical condition late Sunday, but his condition Monday morning wasn’t immediately known.
