In a press briefing on October 6, 2022, Las Vegas police Capt. Dori Koren stated that there were a total of eight casualties, with two of them having passed away and the remaining three being in serious condition. The other victims seem to be doing okay, he added. At the scene, a kitchen knife was discovered. In custody is the suspect.
Koren refused to disclose whether the victims were street entertainers or showgirls. It’s unclear how many of the deceased were showgirls according to those accounts, which were based on interviews with witnesses at the site with local media.
The guy was detained in front of the Venetian and had “blood on his sleeves,” according to KTNV-TV. One person was described as “appearing to have been stabbed at the Fashion Mall and was ‘lying on the ground among the stores'” by that station, citing a witness.
Dewaun Turner, 47, who saw five of the stabbings, described to the Review-Journal two women running while a guy with a knife followed them. One of them hit the ground and was stabbed. The suspect, according to him, then stabbed a male who was out with a girlfriend. According to Turner, the perpetrator then stabbed two more victims.
According to a tweet from a local journalist, the stabbings happened as the showgirls were roaming the strip and posing for pictures with tourists.
I recently spoke with a Montreal visitor who claimed to have witnessed at least two showgirls being stabbed on the Strip. The showgirls stroll the Strip to chat with tourists and take their pictures. Reporter Joe Moeller of ABC 13 tweeted, “He provided photo below of one being taken away on a stretcher @KTNV.
“#BREAKING I’m talking to a woman who claims to employ 4 wounded showgirls. We are now awaiting information from Metro @KTNV. “She said the suspect had a knife, pretended to be a chef, and wanted to take a photo with the showgirls. When they said no, that is when the stabbings started,” he tweeted.
“At this time, caution tape is obstructing the Strip on the north and west sides of Palazzo,” continued Moeller. Showgirls I spoke with the claim there were several places where the stabbings occurred @KTNV.
Multiple victims received help, according to Koren, and the culprit was immediately apprehended. Two of the victims have regrettably passed away, according to Koren.
Despite a portion of Las Vegas Boulevard being closed for investigation, “the scene is under control.”
There are no longer any safety worries, he claimed. The object was characterized as a “big kitchen knife” by him.
The mass stabbing incident, according to Reuters, took place in front of a casino on the Las Vegas Strip.
