Two people were shot Friday morning a few blocks west of the Las Vegas Strip, according to authorities.

The shooting was reported at 4 a.m., with officers seen in the Emerald Suites parking lot at Tropicana Avenue and Cameron Street, near The Orleans Hotel and Casino.

Officers responded to reports of people hearing shots and arrived to find two victims, identified as a man and woman.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police say the two victims have been taken to UMC, and their conditions are not immediately known.

People from the complex were detained for questioning, though it's unclear if a suspect has been identified.

Police said three people were shot earlier Friday but corrected that figure in an update later in the day.
