Witnesses said on social media that the burglars wore pig masks and appeared armed.

According to USA media outlets, unknown persons in pig masks opened fire in the Bellagio hotel in Las Vegas.

"It is believed at least one suspect fired shots inside the store", the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said in a statement. No one was injured. The suspects tried to drive away but their auto wouldn't start so they ran on foot and tried to carjack a driver before running as the carjacking attempt failed, the Sun reported. There were also other reports of tourists hearing gunshots and that there was an "active shooter" in the area. That's when the swine, apparently, was corralled.
