A man and woman are dead after an apparent murder-suicide shooting at a hotel on the Las Vegas Strip, police said.

Las Vegas Police Lt. Ray Steiber said the shooting happened at about 8:30 p.m. Friday at the Excalibur hotel-casino.

Steiber said a man shot a woman near the front entrance of the high-rise hotel. He then turned the gun on himself and was found dead at the scene.

The woman was transported to a local hospital, where she was pronounced dead, Steiber said.

Neither the gunman not the victim was identified. However, Steiber said the woman worked as a vendor at the hotel's concierge desk, where tourists can get show tickets and restaurant reservations.

The relationship between the shooter and the victim was not immediately clear. No one else was injured.
