A fight led to a shooting on the Las Vegas Strip around 2:19 a.m. Monday.
Police say a 26-year-old male suspect got into an altercation with two male victims on the pedestrian bridge between the Cosmopolitan and Planet Hollywood. At some point during the fight, the suspect pulled out a gun and fired several shots, striking both victims.
The suspect fled the scene but was taken into custody by patrol officers on the first floor of the Planet Hollywood parking garage.
"It was crazy," says one witness, Kave'h Flowers.  "A lot of crazy stuff happens, I'm used to it.  I'm not going to let it phase me, as long as it doesn't happen to me." 
Both victims were transported to the hospital.
