Aspiring Rapper Fatally Shot In Las Vegas Suite

LAS VEGAS (AP/CBS Las Vegas) — Police are searching for leads in the shooting death of an aspiring rapper in a posh suite at a Las Vegas resort as reported earlier.

More details have emerged as police say 25-year-old Evan Plunkett, who went by the name Hollywood Will, was shot in the chest after a fight erupted between him and three other men during a party Thursday night in Palms Casino Resort’s Fantasy Tower.

Investigators say other people involved in the fight fled the suite before police arrived and no arrests have been made. About 40 to 50 people attended the party.

The Palms is home to some of the most extravagant party suites in Las Vegas, including a 9,000-square-foot Sky Villa that rents for $40,000 a night.

Friends say Plunkett returned to the Las Vegas area after serving as a Marine.
