Police ID Gunman In Shooting At Hotel-Casino

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police have identified the gunman who they say fatally shot two security guards investigating a disturbance in a guest room at a hotel-casino.

Police say they don't know why 29-year-old Christopher Olague fired on the security guards.

Authorities say Olague ran from the Arizona Charlie's Decatur west of the Las Vegas Strip after the Saturday morning shooting, tried to break into a home and shot himself in the head on the property. Police described his condition as "non-survivable."
