Suspected Bandit Shot Dead At Rio Casino In Las Vegas

Police taze, shoot armed robbery suspect at the home of the WSOP.

As a general rule, casinos don’t like it when they lose money. They especially don’t like it when they are robbed of it.

In a story reported by the Las Vegas Review Journal a suspect in a string of armed casino robberies was tazed, shot and killed at the home of the World Series of Poker, the Rio Hotel and Casino on Sunday.

The suspect, who officials have yet to only describe as a “white male adult, heavily armed”, would allegedly approach a clerk, produce weapon and at times comment that he was also carrying explosives before making off with the money.

Today when that suspect, who was being tailed by detectives, was finally approached he “did not comply with their commands” which led to him being tazed (bro).

After tazed officials say he “reached for his waistband” (aka went for his gun) and was subsequently shot dead.
