    CARSON CITY, Nev. -- Nevada's Supreme Court ruled gun manufacturers cannot be held responsible for the deaths in the 2017 mass shooting on the Las Vegas Strip because a state law shields them from liability unless the weapon malfunctions.The parents of a woman who was among the 60 people killed in the shooting at a packed music festival filed a wrongful death suit against Colt Manufacturing Co. and several other gun manufacturers in July 2019.The suit said the gun companies "knowingly manufactured and sold weapons designed to shoot automatically because they were aware their AR-15s could be easily modified with bump stocks to do so, thereby violating federal and state machinegun prohibitions."Stephen Paddock used an AR-15 with a bump stock when he fired 1,049 rounds in just 10 minutes on the crowd of 22,000 people from his suite in a casino-resort tower before he killed himself.

    Dancer auditions for a soon-to-open Las Vegas strip club were cut short by the fire marshal after too many people showed up to watch the tryouts, with one host reminding a crowd pushed against the stage of this month's Astroworld stampede. Tryouts for Club Ice were held last Wednesday at Blume Lounge in Henderson, Nevada - just outside of Vegas. The event proved to be a little too popular, with TMZ reporting that 1,000 women signed up and the Fire Marshal had to shut it down to avoid any potential injuries. At one point, a host is heard saying: 'This motherf***** too packed, y'all gotta back up. Y'all seen that s*** happen with Travis Scott the other night, y'all better pack up,' referring to the deadly stampede at the Houston festival that killed 10 people.  Auditions for dancers at the upcoming Club Ice were reportedly shut down by the fire marshal  'Y'all not gonna be suing me, talking about 'I let y'all do this s***,' a man who appeared to be a host said.

    A Pac-12 football season stacked with unexpected developments might have a few more in store, including this: Washington State vs. Penn State in the Las Vegas Bowl. That’s right. The team that lost its opener to Utah State, got blown out at home by USC and fired its head coach and four assistants in October — that team has a path to the second biggest stage in the Pac-12’s postseason lineup. The Cougars are one of several teams in contention to become the conference’s first participant in the reinvigorated Las Vegas Bowl, which has moved to Allegiant Stadium and features an opponent from the Big Ten. Penn State might be that opponent. Or maybe Wisconsin. Stranger things have happened.

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — A Las Vegas business executive whose claim of voter fraud was featured by state Republicans in November 2020 as proof of tainted votes has agreed to plead guilty to a reduced charge of voting more than once in the same election. Donald “Kirk” Hartle is expected to pay a $2,000 fine and receive the equivalent of one year of probation when he’s sentenced, according to a plea agreement filed Monday ahead of his scheduled plea on Tuesday in state court in Las Vegas. Hartle, 55, had faced two felony charges in a criminal complaint alleging that he used his dead wife’s ballot. Hartle’s wife, Rosemarie Hartle, died in 2017 at age 52. Hartle’s attorney, David Chesnoff, on Monday called the plea deal fair and said Hartle accepted responsibility for his actions. Through a spokesman, state Attorney General Aaron Ford declined immediate comment. The state Republican Party featured Hartle’s account as an example of widespread voter fraud in Nevada, where now-President Joe Biden, a Democrat, defeated then-President Donald Trump by 33,596 of 1.4 million votes cast, or...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Troopers investigating a crash last year that killed five bicyclists on a stretch of Nevada highway did not suspect the driver of the box truck that hit them was impaired, although a blood test later found he had a potentially lethal level of methamphetamine in his system, a Las Vegas television station reported. KLAS-TV said it reviewed hours of trooper body-camera video, photos, internal documents and court records about the wreck that resulted in an agreement that let driver Jordan Alexander Barson plead guilty to two counts of driving under the influence causing death. He originally faced 14 felonies. The lead prosecutor said the evidence against Barson was weakened because Nevada Highway Patrol troopers at the scene didn’t find probable cause to require a blood sample for testing. Instead, Barson submitted to a voluntary blood draw two hours after the crash. “They didn’t get a search warrant in the case, and that had to do with they didn’t suspect DUI,” former Deputy Clark County District Attorney Thomas Moskal told the station. Moskal has since left...

    A Las Vegas woman died in a chair in her home and her body remained there for years, until intruders found it and buried it in the yard, police say. The death of Lucille Payne, 82, had previously been declared a homicide, but that is no longer believed to be the case. Investigators now say Payne, who lived alone, probably died in the summer of 2018, TV station KLAS reported. The death was apparently natural; the precise cause has not yet been determined. Nobody realized anything was amiss until April 15 of this year, when someone tipped the police off to unusual goings-on at the woman’s house. It was discovered that squatters were living there — and a dismembered Payne was in a shallow grave in the backyard. Police say that sometime this year intruders discovered the body in the chair and decided to live in the home and sell off Payne’s possessions. The police have not identified the suspects or even said how many were involved in the scheme. They face charges of selling stolen property and improper burial,...
    The body of a deceased elderly woman who died in 2018 was dismembered and buried in the backyard of her Las Vegas home by at least two squatters who sold her car and lived off her wealth before being caught by police this spring, authorities said. Lucille Payne, 82, passed away while sitting in a chair and remained there for three years inside her Northwest Valley home before squatters mutilated her mummified body and dug up a shallow grave to bury her, according to police. 'After finding her, the decision was made between several people that they were going to dismember her body and bury her and then basically drain her finances and sell off her belongings, fraudulently,' Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Ray Spencer said. Payne's death had initially been ruled a homicide by blunt force trauma after investigators received a tip about two people seen digging, and authorities later found her body buried at the Shore Breeze Drive home in April.    Further investigation concluded the cause of Payne's death was 'undetermined,' Metro Police said.  Payne had no...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) — Prosecutors in Las Vegas have filed additional felony charges against a 22-year-old man accused of killing a local filmmaker sitting in a parked car outside a convenience store but missing customers inside during what authorities characterized as a random shooting rampage.
