Husband held in Vegas airport carpark shooting


Two people shot in apparent domestic violence incident at Las Vegas airport

On Monday night, a man was arrested for allegedly shooting two people inside a parking garage at McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas.

Police did not identify the suspect as of 11:45 p.m. Monday.

According to the KTNV.com, a man and a woman were shot on the sixth level of a parking garage at the Las Vegas airport at around 6 p.m. local time.

The victims, a man and a woman whose names and ages were not immediately available, were walking to a auto in the airport’s parking garage when the shooter ambushed the pair at around 6 p.m., Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Capt. Vincent Cannito said at a media briefing. Two people were taken to local hospitals, according to that Twitter account.

Metro’s Officer Larry Hadfield reported that the shooting, which was reported at 5:57 p.m., stemmed from a domestic violence incident.

Airport Director Rosemary Vassiliadis (vas-ill-ee-AH’-dehs) said airport operations and flights weren’t affected.

He says the wounded woman and man were hospitalized in stable condition. She added that all of the airport’s terminals remained open as police and medical crews responded to the garage.

For about 20 minutes, the Airport Connector, which links the 215 Beltway to McCarran’s main terminals, was shut down as officers converged on the scene, which caused a significant traffic backup.
