Las Vegas Strip briefly closed after shot fired

Police say a gunshot fired after an argument on the Las Vegas Strip temporarily shut down the road, but no injuries were reported.

Metro Police say they arrested a man near the Bellagio fountains after the shot was fired early this morning.

Authorities say it started when a group of men got into an argument near Planet Hollywood. They were walking away toward the Bellagio when a man came up from behind and fired a shot. He ran, but was arrested nearby.

Police briefly closed Las Vegas Boulevard between the Bellagio fountains and Harmon Avenue for the investigation. The sidewalk in front of the fountains remained closed longer.
