Shots Fired Outside Popular NYC Casino
A casino brawl broke out earlier in the week last week, and a man is still on the large. This man shot rounds outside of the casino while the brawl was taking place. This not only was dangerous, and it scared both visitors and residents alike in the Queens area.
There were around a dozen people involved in a brawl at the buffet in the dining area of the casino, and at the same time, this man fired shots outside in the parking lot of the casino. No one was injured by the gun fire during this time, but it was unclear as to why he shot the gun in the first place. This is what the police are trying to find out.
They used surveillance cameras to follow his moves that night, and have also gotten his identity. Police are saying that it is 22 year old, Jaquan Roberts that fired the gun outside and he is now being looked into. During the time of the gun shots, the police were originally called because of the brawl that was happening inside. People were not only punching one another, but chairs and other objects were being thrown and items we being ruined.
There were dozens of people that were injured during this free for all, and a few of them were even arrested because of the fighting and are held on bail. A few of the officers had minor injuries and everything was dissolved as soon as they arrived.
Hundreds of people stood on the sides and watched as this fight broke out, and around a dozen or more were fighting. It is unclear as to what happened and why all of these people were fighting within the casino. The casino also made a statement about the particular fight that took place, “The safety of our patrons is Resorts World’s top priority, and there is absolutely no room for this kind of behavior at our facility,” the statement said. “We are reviewing all aspects of this unfortunate event and are fully committed to taking steps to ensure similar acts do not take place ever again.”
This is some serious fighting that happened and now people might be a bit afraid to show up in the same casino, again.
As of right now, the police are mostly looking into what caused the fight, and why someone was in the parking lot shooting off a gun for no apparent reason.
