Las Vegas crime: Tourist shot to death at a Las Vegas hotel

A woman was shot to death in a hotel room on the Las Vegas Strip early Monday. The shooter remains at large.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) officers discovered the victim around 2 a.m. When police arrived, she was unconscious and died a short time later. Police believe the shooting was a homicide.

Officers initially arrived at the hotel to conduct a welfare check on the woman, Las Vegas television station KLAS reported.

In the initial report, police did not reveal the name of the hotel. But KLAS reports that the MGM Grand Las Vegas is located at 3799 South Las Vegas Blvd.

Police may review hotel surveillance footage for evidence and speak to possible witnesses. The Clark County Coroner's Office may conduct an autopsy on the victim to confirm the manner and cause of death.

As of noon Monday, no suspects had been arrested.

Fatal knife attack near strip

A man has been arrested after a death occurred near the Las Vegas Strip on Friday.

The fatal stabbing happened about 10:45 a.m. at the corner of Palos Verdes Street and Twain Avenue, east of the Las Vegas Strip. The victim was transported to a local hospital for emergency treatment but died shortly after arrival.

Hassan Howard, 20, was arrested on open murder charges in connection with the death, Las Vegas television station KLAS reported.

Police said the victim and Howard got into an argument before the stabbing. There was no mention of what led to the controversy.

Howard was being held Friday at the Clark County Detention Center. He remained in custody on Monday and was due to appear in a local court on Tuesday.

The victim's body may undergo an autopsy. The Clark County Coroner's Office may identify the victim and confirm the cause and manner of death.

Ponzi scheme leads to $3 million theft

A man was arrested last Tuesday on 17 counts for allegedly stealing more than $3 million from investors in a Ponzi scheme in Las Vegas. He used the money to pay for gambling and personal expenses, police said.

The victims believed they were investing in a legitimate business selling luxury watches, Las Vegas television station KLAS reported. The plot was reported to local police in September.

The defendant, Nicholas Trimble, currently faces charges including multiple counts of theft of $100,000 or more.

One of the victims involved in the scam lost $800,000 and several watches, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD). Another victim lost about $1.5 million.

Apparently the money was lost due to Trimble's gambling addiction or was used for personal expenses. Police said Trimble withdrew approximately $50,000 from accounts at Wynn Las Vegas and $400,000 from accounts at Red Rock Casino Resort & Spa.

A company founded by Trimble, Colorado-based Cherry Creek Capital LLC defaulted on payments in 2018 and 2022, according to KLAS.
