A shooting outside Gold Strike Casino in Tunica, Mississippi has left four people in need of hospital treatment.

One of the victims called 911 from the scene at around 3am Sunday morning. The assailants targeted her and three others while they were walking through the parking lot toward Gold Strike Casino, which is owned by VICI Properties and operated by MGM Resorts International.

According to witnesses and surveillance footage, multiple suspects inside a car shot at the victims before fleeing the scene. They drove a white Infiniti with the Mississippi license plate CONILOU, which deputies have since discovered is a stolen tag.

All four of the victims suffered gun shot wounds. Three have since left hospital, while one is still receiving treatment. The authorities have urged anyone with any information on the incident to contact the Tunica County Sherriff’s Office or Crime Stoppers.

Just last October, another shooting took place in the parking lot of an MGM property. The BetMGM Sportsbook at Nationals Park, Washington DC had to close after a man was shot in his car, parked outside. Despite life-saving efforts, officials pronounced the man dead at the scene.
