Burglary at Bellagio Hotel and Casino prompts lockdown on Vegas strip

According to Daily Mail, a very popular casino and hotel from Las Vegas, Bellagio, is locked down after receiving reports of a gunman.

The legendary resort was on lockdown for about half an hour following reports of an active shooter, ABC News reported.

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. No one was injured and a suspect was taken into custody. Some others reported that tourists heard gun shots and that an "active shooter" was in play.

On social media, one witness shared a photo of a man wearing a pig mask. Parts of the casino property were closed as police investigated.

Local reports suggest the shooting is linked to an attempted armed raid on a Rolex shop inside the hotel. Police did not specify in which store the incident occurred; the Bellagio is home to several high-end jewelry and watch stores, including Tiffany, Tesorini, Omega and Harry Winston.

"He was yelling", Kamil added, the Las Vegas Sun reported. When it wouldn't start, they tried to carjack someone else's auto, and then tried to run away, the Las Vegas Sun reported.
