Gunman Shoots 7 After Las Vegas Funeral

MSNBC.COM - A gunman who at first appeared to mingle with funeral-goers on Wednesday later sprayed bullets at those paying respects to a man stabbed to death on the Las Vegas strip, police said.

The mourners had been attending a funeral for Andres Elena, who was slain on June 25 in the first of three recent killings in the city's main tourist area that police said were isolated incidents. Seven people were shot and wounded in Wednesday's attack, officials said.

"An individual ... wearing a red shirt approached a group of mourners who were outside the funeral and appeared to mingle," police spokesman Bill Cassel said. "After a few moments this individual opened fire."

The victims' injuries were not life-threatening. Cassell said six adults and one juvenile were wounded.

The incident occurred at just before 7 p.m. local time (10 p.m. ET) at the Palm Mortuary, The Las Vegas Sun reported.

Cassell said police were looking for a white car with spoke chrome rims and a purple and brown design on the side as a vehicle of interest in the case.

Police do not know if the shooting was gang-related or how it was tied to Elena's stabbing, The Sun reported.
