A fight at a Las Vegas Strip parking garage early Friday morning led to the shooting of three people, two of whom died, and an arrest police said.

According to Lt. Dan McGrath, of Las Vegas Metro police, a fight took place on the third floor of the Miracle Mile Shops parking garage at 1:18 a.m. Police said security officers broke up the fight and several of the participants left heading westbound on Harmon Avenue.

At 1:29 a.m., police received reports of a shooting on Harmon near Aldebaran Avenue, which is in the opposite side of the Strip from the Miracle Mile Shops garage. There, officers located a woman lying on the street with apparent gunshot wounds. The woman was rushed to University Medical Center, where she died.

Another call to police at 1:33 a.m. led officers to the nearby Cosmopolitan hotel-casino valet area, where a female driver and a man arrived also wounded. The couple were also sent to UMC, where the woman died. The man was stabilized at the hospital.

Police said they were able to confirm the victims' vehicle was connected to the fight at the Miracle Mile Shops garage through surveillance video.

Authorities arrested 30-year-old Omar Talley in connection with the double homicide and he is booked into the Clark County Detention Center facing murder charges.
