Metro Police were expected to make arrests today in connection with a stabbing death that occurred early this morning during a fight on a walkway over the Las Vegas Strip.
Homicide detectives were interviewing two suspects this morning in connection with the stabbing death of one man and the injury of another man who underwent surgery this morning for his wounds, according to Metro Police Homicide Lt. Lew Roberts.
Roberts said police were called about 4:15 a.m. about a fight involving several people that was taking place on the walkway between the MGM Grand and New York-New York.
As officers arrived on the scene, they discovered two Latin male adults on the walkway suffering from multiple stab wounds, Roberts said.
Both victims were transported to UMC Trauma, where one of them was pronounced dead, Roberts said.
The second victim was taken into surgery and is expected to survive his wounds, Roberts said.
Officers were able to capture two suspects who were near the stabbings and took them into custody without incident, he said.
As of this morning, both suspects were being interviewed by homicide detectives and arrests are expected to be forthcoming, Roberts said.
The identify of the victim was being withheld pending notification of next of kin and an autopsy by the Clark County Coroner’s Office, he said.
