A man was shot in the head and later passed away following a dispute at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Lake Tahoe in Stateline, Nev. on Saturday morning.
The victim, identified as Omar Reyes Garcia, 32, was rushed to a nearby hospital. He was pronounced dead soon after arriving for treatment.
Garcia and Edgar Julian Delgado, 24, had gotten into an argument at the casino’s Center Bar. That led Delgado to pull out a firearm and wound Garcia at about 8 a.m., authorities said.
Within hours, Delgado and another suspect were arrested at gunpoint by Eldorado Sheriff’s deputies on a California highway, authorities said.
Delgado and Garcia had been at the Hard Rock since at least 2 a.m. Saturday. The two men first met at the casino bar and spent several hours together before the shooting, Reno TV station KOLO reported.
Delgado was charged with first-degree murder. A second suspect was identified as Savannah Racquel Tautaupale, 26. She was charged with driving under the influence and being an accessory after the fact.
The two suspects were booked at the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office jail in Placerville, Calif. Delgado was being held without bail
