Silver Nugget Shooting Caught on Surveillance Camera

A shooting at the Silver Nugget in North Vegas left one person dead and another injured this weekend. The grizzly shooting was caught on surveillance video. Evidently the ruckus ensued when a verbal disagreement escalated to a full on melee after a drink was intentionally splashed in someones face. Police have released the video to the media in the hopes that someone can identify the shooter.

We generally do not post such grizzly news on VegasTripping, mostly because your trip to Vegas should be fun and without fear. Sometimes, things can and will get out of control. If you find yourself in a situation where someone is getting irate over something stupid, just walk away or find security.

What started as a normal night at the Silver Nugget Casino, about seven miles north of the strip, turned deadly in a matter of seconds.

At 4:23 a.m., a group started to walk out of the bar. But then it appears that for some reason, people started arguing. All of a sudden, a man in a white shirt threw a punch, starting the confrontation that ended in a deadly conclusion. A man in his late teens or early 20s pulled out a gun, and started to fire. A few minutes later, police discovered the carnage this suspect left behind.
