LAS VEGAS (FOX5) — Las Vegas police arrested three suspects in a shooting earlier this month in front of the Paris hotel and casino.
About 2 a.m. on September 19, police and emergency personnel responded to the sidewalk in front of the Paris Hotel. There, they found a man and woman both injured from gunfire.
They were taken to a local hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Detectives said the shooting happened after a fight between two groups of people. “Multiple” people were taken into custody, police said, including the suspected shooter.
According to their arrest reports, the suspects were identified as Anthony Wade, Derrion Cox and Jalondon Parker. Police said at the time, the victim was walking with his uncle on the Las Vegas Strip.
The victim was carrying a boombox and bumped into the crowd and ignored them, as did his uncle, police said. He stopped to confront the group of three which led to a fight. The uncle shouted there was a gun and according to police, multiple rounds were fired.
The victim was shot in both arms and both legs, police said. A bystander suffered abrasions and another had shrapnel in his arm. Nine bullet casings were found at the scene.
Wade allegedly told police that Parker was the shooter after speaking on a similar incident on Fremont Street. Surveillance footage showed the victim punched Cox before Parker fired the weapon.
No additional suspects were outstanding, according to police.
