Las Vegas LOCKDOWN as gunman opens fire

One of the most iconic hotels in Las Vegas, The Bellagio, was put on lockdown this morning when visitors began reporting shooting in the casino. They denied earlier reports of an active shooter at the resort.

A gunman wearing a pig mask has reportedly opened fire at a hotel in Las Vegas.

One witness posted to Twitter a picture of a person wearing what appeared to be a pig mask and peering around a corner while standing beneath a Rolex sign.

Las Vegas police said three "well-dressed" suspects used sledgehammers to break the glass of a Rolex Store in the hotel and steal the items, according to the Las Vegas Sun. The Bellagio is home to several high-end jewelry and watch stores, including Tiffany, Tesorini, Omega and Harry Winston.

Casino police said they are investigating the incident, which took place inside the Bellagio Hotel and Casino.

"Initial reports indicated there was an active shooter, however that proved to be false", police said, adding there were no injuries. Large police forces arrived at the scene and it remains unclear whether anyone was injured. The suspects tried to drive away but their auto wouldn't start so they ran on foot and tried to carjack a driver before running as the carjacking attempt failed, the Sun reported.
