The shooting happened Saturday at Arizona Charlie's Decatur. Police have said 29-year-old Christopher Olague ran away after the shooting and was later found at a nearby residence with a self-inflicted gunshot wound.

University Medical Center on Tuesday confirmed Olague died Sunday.

Authorities have not disclosed Olague's motive.

Golden Entertainment owns the hotel-casino. The company in a statement says Archuleta and White were dedicated to protecting guests and employees.
