Las Vegas police have apprehended a man who opened fire at the Mandalay Bay Casino.

At least 2 people were killed and 24 were hospitalized with suspected gunshot wounds following a shooting in Las Vegas, Reuters reported Monday, citing a hospital spokesperson.

The Las Vegas police confirmed on Monday that a suspect in the shooting incident who’d been apprehended earlier was “down.”

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department had responded to the shooting incident by launching a manhunt as scenes of the carnage were posted online.

The police, nevertheless, continued to urge people to avoid the area; part of the highway was closed off.

The Hollywood Reporter cited officials who said that shots were heard at other locations, indicating that there may have been multiple gunmen.

​​Some flights bound for the Las Vegas airport were diverted in the early hours of Monday following incident, McCarran International Airport tweeted.
