Gunman shoots 2 Vegas medical clinic workers, then kills self, police say – CBS News
LAS VEGAS — A patient denied a same-day appointment at a pain-management clinic in Las Vegas shot and injured two employees Thursday before fatally shooting himself, police said.
As other patients and staff fled, the man, who was a regular patient at the Center for Wellness and Pain Care, turned the gun on himself, police spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said. He died before police arrived.
The two employees’ injuries are “fairly minor,” Meltzer said.
CBS Las Vegas affiliate KLAS-TV reports Meltzer said things could have been much worse but, “Officers’ response was very quick to this incident. Once we received those initial calls of possible shots fired, a possible active shooter, the very first officers that arrived formed a team and immediately went in to try and take care of the situation.”
Bystander Michel Evans remarked to KLAS that, “It’s really shocking how people could do something like that, you know? For something so small.”
Caitlyn Jones said she was one of about a dozen people in the clinic when the gunman opened fire just a few feet from her.
