    Still in progress, they've cleared the first 6 floors so far. Updates as I can find them.

    Marshals Shot In Vegas Federal Building
    Authorities Say Gunman Arrested

    POSTED: 8:28 am PST January 4, 2010
    UPDATED: 8:56 am PST January 4, 2010

    LAS VEGAS -- Surrounding streets around the Lloyd D. George Federal Building in downtown Las Vegas have been blocked off following a shooting inside the building.

    Authorities said two federal marshals were shot in the lobby and a gunman was in custody. Their conditions are unknown.

    The shooting broke out in the lobby of the building, located on Las Vegas Boulevard between Bridger and Bonneville avenues.

    With streets around the building blocked off, drivers are urged to use alternate routes, including Interstate 15 to the west and Maryland Parkway to the east.

    Chief Deputy Marshal Roxanna Lea Irwin said it appeared a shotgun was used during the confrontation.

    No word on the status of the FLEOs involved... First it was Deputy USM then they said Federal Officers.....

    1 Court security officer shot (possibly DOA), 1 Marshal slightly peppered with the shot, should be ok.

    Well, *******!

    Couldn't even make it a full fu***** week before the first one. Hopefully, this isn't the case, and the officer is still alive. And how the holy hell did someone manage to bring a shotgun into a courthouse? Either it happened out front at the mags, security sucks, or someone helped to sneak it in.

    I hope it was the latter...the second choice sucks, and the third one should mean an immediate execution of whomever did it.

    It probably happened in the lobby. I highly doubt the gunman would have been able to get through to the courtroom armed. I hope the Security Officer is OK. Those guys are contract like me. I do it for DHS.


    Update...Security officer dead. US Marshall wounded.

    I want to see the security footage from the lobby. Doubt we ever will though.

    So much for the 3 round theory...

    It sounds like it could be another ambush. There are reports that the shooter was in the bushes across the street.

    Rather difficult to determine the exact number of rounds from the sound track... the abundance of concrete and canyon like architecture can create very deceiving echos.

    Certainly wasn't an average seven yard, three shot scenario.
