Las Vegas' Bellagio put on lockdown following armed burglary

People fled the Bellagio casino in Las Vegas as a suspected robber wearing a pig mask sparked fears of a shooting.

In a statement, police said that a preliminary investigation suggests at least three suspects entered a high-end retail store to commit the burglary.

One witness posted to Twitter a picture of a person wearing what appeared to be a pig mask and peering around a corner while standing beneath a Rolex sign. Parts of the casino property were closed as police investigated. The Bellagio remained on lockdown for about 30 minutes after the incident.

Bellagio is a casino, resort, luxury hotel and resort on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada.

The Las Vegas police confirmed that a burglary took place but any reports of an "active shooter" were false.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department attempted to calm down the guests of the casino and tweeted that there was "no active shooter" in the region and that no one has suffered any injuries in the incident. When it wouldn't start, they tried to carjack someone else, and then tried to run away, the Sun reported.
