The Clark County Coroner’s Office has identified a California man found shot to death Tuesday morning in the parking garage of the Silverton Casino Lodge.
Jose Antonio Mollinedo, 19, of Victorville, Calif., died of a gunshot wound to the head. The coroner’s office ruled his death a homicide.
Metro Police were called to the south valley hotel-casino, 3333 Blue Diamond Road, after a hotel employee found the man’s body while driving up the fifth-floor ramp of the parking garage. Police began canvassing the area for witnesses and started reviewing videos from the hotel’s surveillance cameras.
Police are asking anyone with information about the shooting death to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
Reminiscent of a rustic lodge, this off-the-Strip casino offers something for everyone, including affordable rooms, an array of dining options and family friendly features.
Silverton Casino Hotel is decorated in earth tones, stone and wood, and accented with amber-tinted lighting. The 90,000-square-foot casino includes more than 30 tables games, 1,900 slots, a high-limit lounge, a newly renovated poker room and the Cantor Gaming Sports Book.
One of the resort's most unique features is its 117,000-gallon saltwater aquarium, which houses more than 4,000 sharks, stingrays and tropical fish — and an occasional mermaid. Just steps away from the aquatic wonderland is the flagship 165,000-square-foot Bass Pro Shops Outdoor World, with everything from hunting, boating, fishing and camping gear.
Surrounding the casino floor is a vast array of dining options, such as the upscale-steakhouse Twin Creeks or the unique Mexican restaurant Mi Casa Grill Cantina.
