According to police Capt. Dori Koren.
Koren stated to reporters that no arrests had been made and that no suspect descriptions were available immediately, but that authorities didn't believe there was any danger for the public.
Koren stated that police went to the hookah bar after multiple 911 calls.
Koren stated that officers arrived on the scene and provided aid, including administering CPR and tourniquets.
Investigators tried to identify the type of gun used in the shooting.
He said, "It's quite large so it's going to take some time to complete the entire scene." We don't know the exact weapon used or if there were more than one shooter. Although we believe there was gunfire, we are still investigating all information.
Koren stated that the medical assistance provided to victims by officers who first responded "definitely had a significance" in this case.
Hookahs water pipes are used to smoke tobacco in different flavors.
The shooting took place in a shopping center that was closed for hours. Officers searched for any stray bullets or other evidence.
U.S. Rep. Dina Titus (D-Nev.) tweeted that "my thoughts are with the victims, their loved ones and all those hurt in last night’s senseless shooting @ a hookah bar." We must do more to stop gun violence.
