North Las Vegas, Nev— Police circulated a security videotape Monday showing a gunman firing shots and people scrambling for cover in an off-Strip casino where a man was killed and a woman was wounded.

“The tape’s good enough that we think we can (identify him),” said Sean Walker, a North Las Vegas police spokesman.

In video footage, a man who appears to be in his late teens or early 20s is seen firing a handgun during a fight about 4:25 a.m. Sunday inside the Silver Nugget casino, about seven miles north of the Las Vegas Strip.

The Clark County coroner’s office on Monday identified the dead man as Allen Tyrone Smith, 20, of Las Vegas.

Police said a woman in her 40s was shot in the hand, treated at a Las Vegas hospital and released. Her name was not made public.


At least one punch is thrown in an argument between two people before a man splashes a drink in the face of the gunman, who pulls out a handgun and begins shooting.

Neither victim is seen, but video images clearly show the gunman and his clothing, including a dark baseball cap with the brim turned to the back of his head, a dark sweat shirt and oversize cargo shorts.
