- Sense of normalcy returns to Excalibur after shooting (12-15-2012)
- Man, woman killed in double shooting at Excalibur (12-14-2012)
A man who fatally shot a woman at the concierge desk at the Exacalibur on Friday and then killed himself has been identified as Edward Brandt, 31, of Lake Forest, Ill., the Clark County Coroner’s Office said.
Brandt died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head, officials said.
The woman Metro Police said Brandt targeted in the shooting, Jessica Kenny, 30, was taken to University Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead.
She worked as a vendor for travel website VEGAS.com, which is owned by the Greenspun family, publishers of the Las Vegas Sun.
No one else was injured in the shooting, which took place about 8:30 p.m. and sent casino patrons stampeding for the doors. Police have not said what relationship Brandt might have had to Kenny.
Sources said the shooter might have dated Kenny, but they parted ways in 2009. Within the past few months, the shooter made sporadic contact with Kenny, but the two were not seeing each other, sources said.
