LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Following two recent shootings near the Fremont Street Experience, Las Vegas Mayor Carolyn Goodman on Tuesday held a meeting to discuss safety in the area.

According to a tweet from Mayor Goodman, among those in Tuesday’s meeting were downtown Las Vegas property owners and the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

She added that Las Vegas’ city attorney “will prosecute violators to the fullest.” The mayor also mentioned that they were exploring a curfew for those under 21 in the area.
