Early this year, an 18-year-old young man has been arrested as a suspect in a shooting in a casino parking space in Las Vegas. The Las Vegas Review-Journal claimed that the Justice Court of Las Vegas scheduled him on 18 March for a preliminary hearing. He was hired on 3 March toward the Clark County detention and attempted to murder. His name is Romell Buckly, but in police documents, his surname is spelled as Buckley.
Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino called the metropolitan police department of Las Vegas before 3 am on 16 January. The hotel is located behind Caesars Palace and the Las Vegas Strip west. According to the newspaper, when police reached the Rio parking Lot, they found a man with a few gunshot wounds. After discovering him in a life-and-death condition, he was taken to a hospital and survived after several surgeries.
In surveillance camera footage, Buckley is seen leaving the casino with the victim’s girlfriend. They were chased by the victim and eventually got into an argument. Buckley then entered the hotel and came back outside soon after. He went closer to the couple and shot the man. According to the police’s arrest warrant, Buckley ran off after shooting the man, leaving him to die. The newspaper revealed the police’s statement that the car and the gun were recovered by police on 18 January.
