Las Vegas police fire upon gunmen exiting Bellagio

Las Vegas police and SWAT have apparently fired upon masked gunmen exiting the Bellagio Casino through walls of fire, apparently at least wounding some of them, as the United States’ gambling playground is rocked by an apparent siege of one of its signature buildings.

Homeland Security and the Department of Defense say they are monitoring the situation. The mayor of Las Vegas has called President Obama requesting help, even though he “has no idea what is happening or who might be responsible.”

There has been no comment from MGM, which owns the hotel or from founder Steve Wynn.
