LAS VEGAS, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- Police said a man and woman are dead after an apparent murder-suicide shooting at the Excalibur Hotel in Las Vegas.

The incident occurred Friday night near the registration desk at the hotel, the Las Vegas Sun reported. The female victim, whose name was not reported, worked at the hotel's concierge desk as a vendor for travel website www.vegas.com. She was taken to University Medical Center with a gunshot wound, but was later pronounced dead.

Metro Police homicide Lt. Ray Steiber said the woman was the apparent target of an alleged male shooter who appeared to have died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound.
