Police say a man who shot two executives, killing one, at a picnic held for a group of employees of a Las Vegas casino-resort was a card dealer at the property.

Police Capt. Robert Plummer says authorities are still looking for 42-year-old suspect Anthony Wrobel, who had worked at The Venetian for 15 years.

Casino operator Las Vegas Sands Corp. is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of Wrobel.

Authorities have said Wrobel walked up to a table at a park Sunday and shot the two executives.

Police say 54-year-old Mia Banks, vice president of casino operations, died at a hospital. They say the other executive, whom the company identified as Hector Rodriguez, is in stable condition at a hospital.
