A SECURITY GUARD has been shot by police after opening fire at a shopping complex in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Blue Diamond Cross Shopping Centre contains a number of stores including Ross Dress for Less, Target and Kohl’s.
Photos and video posted on social media showed a heavy emergency service presence in the area, including police and paramedic services.
One father told local paper, the Las Vegas Review Journal he was inside the Ross Dress for Less store when he saw a man arguing with a woman.
He then claimed the man made threats and left the store, before returning with a weapon which he fired.
The witness could not confirm whether anyone was struck by the gunfire.
Target employees have been photographed comforting one another outside the store.
The shopping complex is in the south of Las Vegas, around six miles from the world famous Strip.
