Police released photos of a man they said threatened with a gun an employee of a Henderson gaming saloon before fleeing from the business with cash.

According to Henderson police, the robbery happened at the Wildfire Casino at 2551 Anthem Village Dr., just off S. Eastern Avenue, about 2:30 a.m. on May 4.

Police said a black man threatened a worker at the rear of the casino with a handgun. They then both entered the business where the employee was forced to lie on the floor, police said.
