A child was injured Friday night when a police officer opened fire on the Las Vegas Strip in a confrontation with a man who waved a gun and pointed at people.
Police arrived at about 7:30 p.m. in front of the Bellagio casino to confront the man. According to Capt. Matt McCarthy, the man did not obey commands and one of the cops fired a shot, grazing two bystanders.
One of them reportedly was a child and taken to a nearby hospital. The suspect, who is known for selling goods to tourists, was arrested.
