Armed man holed up at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas | Daily Mail Online


An armed man is holding a hostage in a hotel room at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, making threats and throwing items out of a window into the pool area below.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said they received a report of a domestic violence disturbance at the hotel and casino at around 9.15am Tuesday.

The male suspect pulled the female victim into the room before police arrived, and when they tried to make contact with the occupants of the room, a man refused to open the door and said he was armed.

He has since been seen hurling large items out of a window, including a chair.

No shots have been fired, and it is unclear if the man actually does have a weapon.

The floor where the man is barricaded has been locked down, and the pools were evacuated.
