Police are reviewing casino surveillance videotape and continuing their search for a man suspected of shooting two people over the weekend at the Caesars Palace hotel-casino.

34-year-old Richard Earl Shepherd Junior is identified as the shooter in the early Saturday gunfire that left two men wounded.

Both men have been released from a Las Vegas hospital. One was
wounded in a knee. The other was shot twice in the arm.

Police say Shepherd was knocked down in a fight with several people near the elevators leading to the parking garage.

He's accused of retrieving a gun and returning before opening fire.

The shooting was the second inside a Las Vegas Strip casino in the last month.

A man police described as emotionally troubled opened fire July sixth inside the New York-New York casino. That shooting left four people wounded and a fifth hurt in a rush for the doors.
