LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - A gunman who at first appeared to mingle with funeralgoers on Wednesday later sprayed bullets on those paying respect for a man stabbed to death on the Las Vegas strip late last month, injuring seven, police said.
The mourners had been attending a funeral for Andres Elena, who was stabbed to death on the strip on June 25 in the first of three recent killings in the city's main tourist area that police said were isolated incidents.
"An individual ... wearing a red shirt approached a group of mourners who were outside the funeral and appeared to mingle," police spokesman Bill Cassel said.
"After a few moments this individual opened fire," he added, saying that seven people were shot and wounded. Their injuries were not life threatening.
Cassell said police were looking for a white car with spoke chrome rims and a purple and brown design on the side as a vehicle of interest in the case.
