RENO, Nev. - John Ascuaga's Nugget in Sparks was under police lockdown after reports of multiple gunshots fired inside the casino late Friday night. Multiple witnesses say the incident involved a motorcycle club known as the "Vagos." Reports say the shooting happened near Trader Dick's on the casino floor.
Witnesses say at least one person was seriously injured. Police would not confirm injuries.
Witnesses report gunshots shortly after the initial shooting about one block north of the Nugget, near the Century Sparks 14 movie theaters. Police mobilized near the venue, but no further incidents were reported.
The police lockdown caused some hotel guests to seek new lodging early Saturday morning.
