LAS VEGAS (AP) — Ten weeks after a weekend shooting wounded two people at the busy Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas police have posted an Internet video to try to identify their assailant.

Officer Jose Hernandez says the 2 a.m. June 8 gunfire left two bystanders wounded at the downtown pedestrian casino mall.

A 28-year-old man and 24-year-old woman were treated for minor wounds and released.

Crowd surveillance video posted Thursday to YouTube shows a fistfight that leaves one man unconscious on the concrete pavement before a male steps toward one of the combatants and apparently fires a handgun.

Both the intended victim and the apparent shooter run away.

Hernandez says the unconscious man recovered and fled before security arrived.

Police describe the suspect as black and between 17 to 22 years old.
