Security guards shot and killed an armed man in a casino in suburban Las Vegas during a confrontation, police said.

The man, whose name was not released, was walking through Green Valley Ranch in Henderson about 3:40 p.m. Sunday when people told security that he was carrying a handgun, police told the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

Three security guards confronted the man, and he drew his weapon, police said. Two of the guards shot the man, police said.


He received medical care at the casino but later died.

No one else was injured, police said.

Henderson Police Lt. Kirk Moore said he did not know whether the man had used his weapon or how many shots were fired.

Green Valley Ranch is owned by gaming company Station Casinos.

Station Casinos spokeswoman Lori Nelson did not immediately respond to an email seeking information.
