Authorities say a casino dealer identified as the suspect in a deadly company picnic shooting on Sunday has been arrested in a small town in the Texas Panhandle.
Las Vegas police said on Twitter Thursday that Anthony J. Wrobel was taken into custody “by Texas law enforcement” near Vega, Texas. That’s a town off Interstate 40 in the Texas Panhandle between New Mexico and Amarillo.
In Texas, Oldham County sheriff’s dispatcher Billie Jo Miesner confirmed that Wrobel is being held by sheriff’s officials.
Officer Larry Hadfield, a Las Vegas police spokesman, said additional information would be provided later.
Wrobel is accused of killing Venetian executive Mia Banks and badly wounding co-worker Hector Rodriguez at close range while they sat at a table at a Las Vegas park.
