Report: Las Vegas Casino Company Picnic Shooter Fumbled With Gun

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Documents say a disgruntled casino employee fumbled with a gun before killing one company executive and wounding another at a company picnic in Las Vegas.

A police report released Thursday by a court in Las Vegas says that the first time Anthony Wrobel pulled the trigger, his handgun failed to fire.

He then shot once into the ground before the report says he shot Venetian casino co-workers Mia Banks in the head and Hector Rodriguez in the back and side.
