Driver with gunshot wound crashes truck near Ilani casino

A Clark County sheriff’s deputy was present in the casino parking lot. He heard a crash and found a man with a gunshot wound inside a pickup truck. The person in the truck had a gunshot wound in the pelvis and leg area. The incident happened outside the Ilani Casino on Friday morning at 9:45 am.

The Chevy pickup truck driver crashed his pickup truck outside of the Ilani Casino Resort. His name has not been released, but he was taken to a nearby hospital. The other person in the truck left the scene. At this point, it is not clear where the shooting has happened. The Ilani casino remains open as no one else was hurt in Friday morning’s incident.

The wounded man has not been interrogated yet. Hence, the circumstances surrounding the case are still unclear. Fred Neiman, a Clark of County Sheriff’s Office, said: “I have no details on what that individual was doing her or what their involvement was. There was a (woman) passenger also in the truck. That individual apparently had left the scene before we got a chance to talk to them because the deputies were dealing with the individual who was shot.’’
