RENO, Nev. (Associated Press) — Reno police are searching for a suspect in a shooting over the weekend at a casino south of downtown.

The incident occurred at the Peppermill Casino at around 5:30 am Sunday morning.

Officers say they found one victim suffering from a non-life threatening gunshot wound who was taken to a local hospital.
