Gunman, Guard Wounded in Las Vegas Casino Shooting

A security guard is wounded and an accused gunman was also shot in an exchange of gunfire this morning at a neighborhood bar and casino in northeast Las Vegas.

Details are still emerging. But initial reports are that it all started with an argument between a man and a woman a little before 5:30 a.m. at the Barcelona bar and casino near Nellis and East Craig Road.

The security guard intervened -- and authorities say he was shot in the leg. His wound is not described as life-threatening.

Authorities say the other man was also wounded -- but no official word yet on his injuries. Police are questioning casino patrons and looking for the woman involved in the initial argument.
