Burglary at Bellagio Hotel and Casino prompts lockdown on Vegas strip

A suspected robber wearing a pig mask is seen outside the Rolex store in the Bellagio Casino Hotel in Las Vegas

Early Saturday, at least three people in "dark, nice suits" and animal masks entered the Bellagio in Las Vegas and ripped off a "high-end retail store". There were also other reports of tourists hearing gunshots and that there was an "active shooter" in the area.

Tyler Perkins said he was stood outside the complex when "hundreds start pouring out the door".

Police have taken one suspect into custody.

"Currently investigating burglary at [Bellagio]", police said on Twitter.

First, the suspects couldn't start their auto in the hotel's parking garage and then they failed to carjack another driver, Lt. Carlos Hank told the paper.

Local reports suggest the shooting is linked to an attempted armed raid on a Rolex shop inside the hotel.

The suspects wore character masks during the incident, including a pig mask seen in photos from the scene posted on social media.

The Bellagio was placed on lockdown for about 30 minutes after the incident.

The legendary Bellagio Resort and Hotel is on the Las Vegas Strip and is recognizable for its dramatic, choreographed fountain shows. They reportedly smashed the window with a sledgehammer.
