Las Vegas Police Investigating After Woman Found Shot Dead in Strip Hotel Room

The Las Vegas Metro Police Department has confirmed that a dead body was found in a guest room at a hotel in the 3700 block of S. Las Vegas Boulevard early Monday morning, just before 2 am. 

Local TV news station 8 News Now is reporting that the scene occurred at the MGM Grand

According to police, hotel staff doing a wellness check on a hotel room found an unconscious woman with a gunshot wound. Medical personnel declared her dead at the scene.

No information has been provided about her identity, nor have any details about the gunshot wound and crime scene. LVMPD says they are investigating it as a homicide, and that the Clark County Coroner will provide further information about the cause and manner of death. 

The frequency of wellness checks varies between 12 hours and two days. In February 2018, MGM Resorts made it policy at all its casino properties to do wellness or welfare checks every 24 hours, even if the do-not-disturb sign is posted. 

This policy came after the 1 October shooting at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in 2017. 

Police are still asking for help from anyone who may know something. They are asking anyone with knowledge of the incident to contact LVMPD Homicide at 702-828-3521 or [email protected]. People who wish to remain anonymous Crimestoppers at 702-385-5555.
