Man Accused Of Opening Fire In Casino Indicted

The man accused of opening fire inside the New York, New York Hotel and Casino was indicted yesterday.

In July, witnesses say Zegrean fired a number of shots from a semiautomatic handgun. Four people were injured.

Prosecutors told a judge Wednesday that he had more than 200 bullets on him at the time he was captured.

Judge Kathy Hardcastle agreed to raise bail from $1.5 million to $3 million.

Zegrean is expected to be arraigned later this month.

He attorney has said he will enter a not guilty plea.
