LAS VEGAS » Authorities have identified a 25-year-old Henderson man who died after being shot at a posh suite in the Palms Casino Resort in Las Vegas.
Clark County coroner's officials identified the victim as Evan Plunkett.
Police said shots were fired about 9:20 p.m. Thursday after a fight erupted between Plunkett and three other males during a party in the hotel's Fantasy Tower. Plunkett was taken to University Medical Center and later died.
Police say the suspects fled the scene before officers arrived and have not been arrested.
Investigators said some 40 to 50 people attended the party, and the hotel was temporarily locked down after the shooting.
The Palms is home to some of the most extravagant suites in Las Vegas, including a 9,000-square-foot Sky Villa that costs $40,000 a night.
