Las Vegas casino panic over suspected robber in pig mask

Las Vegas casino panic over suspected robber in pig mask

A team of burglars - including one wearing a pig mask - smashed their way inside a Rolex store at the Bellagio Casino in Las Vegas early Saturday, according to police and witnesses. There were also other reports of tourists hearing gunshots and that there was an "active shooter" in the area.

Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Carlos Hank said a high-end watch store in the hotel was burglarized by armed suspects. One witness describes seeing a man wearing a pig mask and holding a gun standing guard outside a Rolex store while his compatriots used a sledgehammer to break the glass. "No shooting", a police spokesman said in a text to Reuters. Another one wrote that police is everywhere and the shooter is still active. When it wouldn't start, they tried to carjack someone else's auto, and then tried to run away, the Las Vegas Sun reported.
