GEORGE NOORY IN LAS VEGAS: Get tickets now -- be there June 9!

(Las Vegas, NV) — Tourism officials say Sin City is a safe place to visit, despite yesterday’s deadly incident on the Strip.

The Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority says its resort partners and law enforcement “work closely to maintain a safe and secure experience” for both tourists and residents. It calls what happened yesterday “isolated events.”

Sheriff Doug Gillespie says Las Vegas is safe, and vows to find the suspects and bring them to justice.

In an interview with the KXNT Morning News, Clark County Commissioner Steve Sisolak says even though a large number of police and security are deployed on the Strip, any area with such a high concentration of people poses potential problems.

He believes it is important to bring the guilty to justice, and send a clear message, “its simply not tolerable–that type of behavior.”
