Police accuse Wrobel of strolling up to the victims as they sat at a picnic table at a company gathering. “Those employees were having a picnic when the suspect arrived on scene and walked up to a picnic table where several hotel executives were at,” the spokesman said. “There was a female in her mid 50s who he walked up to. At that point he shot that female who was deceased…he also then targeted another male employee who was at that table.”

The male victim is in critical condition and was transported to the hospital. Neither victim has been named, and their positions at the casino were not yet confirmed.

“This is an isolated incident. This is an act of workplace violence. The individuals at the table were the targets of the shooter,” the police spokesman said. However, Wrobel was at large in the hours immediately following the double shooting.

“We are actively tracking him currently now to try to find his location,” authorities said.

One of the victims was an executive at the hotel, and the other was an employee at the hotel, authorities said. Police would not say whether the executive was the female or the male victim. Police released a photograph of Wrobel and said they have located the suspect’s vehicle, but he was not in it. They aren’t sure what type of vehicle he is in now, and they said that his vehicle was recovered at the las Vegas airport.

“I do know he was an employee at the hotel,” said the police spokesman, who alleged that Wrobel had “targeted the individuals at the table.” According to 3 News, the shooting occurred at a park near Eastern Avenue and Warm Springs Road. “The call was reported around 6:00 p.m. on Sunday,” the television station reported.
