    Las Vegas police have arrested a couple in a carjacking and shooting in central Las Vegas on Saturday afternoon that left a woman gravely wounded. Edchela Robinson, 20, of Phoenix, and her boyfriend, Jaylynn Brown, 17, of Las Vegas, were each charged with attempted murder and multiple other felonies in the attack at an apartment complex on the 6200 block of West Tropicana Avenue, near South Jones Boulevard. Las Vegas police said in arrest reports for the couple that a female motorist was sitting in her car at the apartments, talking on her cell phone at 2:57 p.m. when she...
  • Developers plan 735ft-high Vegas resort in shape of the MOON that has 4,000 hotel rooms, a lagoon and its very own 'lunar colony'

    Renderings have been released of an eye-opening Las Vegas resort that takes the form of a giant moon. Its name? 'Moon', naturally. According to the Canadian entrepreneurs behind it, it would cost £3.6billion ($5billion) to build and, with a height of 224 metres (735ft), would become the joint-second-tallest building in Sin City with the JW Marriott, which is currently the second-loftiest structure behind the 350m- (1,149ft) tall Strat Observation Tower. The celestial retreat – which would be the world's largest sphere - features 4,000 hotel rooms, a 'crater café', a spa, a casino, a lagoon and guests seeking a space-age...

    Mask requirements are popping back up again across the United States following new Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidance that even vaccinated people should wear masks indoors in public in high-transmission communities. Nevada quickly reinstalled a statewide mask mandate within hours of the CDC’s Tuesday announcement, requiring face coverings be worn indoors in public in counties with “substantial or high transmission” starting Friday. Twelve of Nevada’s 17 counties fit that criteria, the state said. That includes Clark County, home to Las Vegas, where the renewed mandate has raised questions about how it will affect its tourism industry, which had...

    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The push to get vaccines to everyone is personal for some people. Friday afternoon, a group of local volunteers tried to convince the unvaccinated to get vaccinated. Since the beginning of las month, Mi Familia Vota has been knocking on doors throughout Las Vegas.

    Workers in Las Vegas and other parts of Clark County, Nevada, will have to resume wearing masks indoors but customers will not under new rules. The Clark County Commission voted Tuesday in an emergency meeting to require face coverings for all employees working indoors and around co-workers or members of the public in an increase in Covid cases driven by a more transmissible variant and a slowing vaccination rate.

    O.J. Simpson will keep fighting recent court orders in Nevada that he owes at least $60 million in judgments stemming from the 1994 killings of his ex-wife Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend, Ron Goldman, his lawyer said Friday. Attorney Malcolm LaVergne said he intends to ask the Nevada Supreme Court to overturn one judge’s order to pay the slain man’s father, Fred Goldman, and another judge’s order in favor of Paul Dorsey, a Connecticut man holding rights to collect the wrongful death claim of Ron Goldman’s mother, Sharon Rufo. “I will be appealing both of those,” LaVergne said, “and...

    I live in Vegas and I've been watching a live traffic cam showing the traffic near Primm, NV , which is at the NV/CA state line on I-15. It's been going on since 10:00AM this morning, and it's been 5mph, bumper to bumper all day and is continuing into the night. I've never seen anything like it. It's mostly Californians returning home after spending the holiday weekend here. Here's the website. Type "Primm" in the "find" box and then click the blue box in the upper right corner to expand the picture. Drive time from Vegas to L.A. is normally...

    LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A home near Jones Boulevard and Hacienda Avenue sits vacant. Inside, there is trash on the ground, house fixtures ripped out, profanity scribbled on walls and cigarette butts in the toilet. "It gives me a knot in my stomach. I don't even want to see what it looks like," homeowner Dawna Priest said. Priest purchased the home in 1998. Since 2004, she has rented it out. "Being a single woman and buying a house by myself it was really special to me," Priest said. For the last five years, the same renter has lived in the...

    A woman in Las Vegas was arrested after she was found naked and passed out in her car. It turns out, the woman was Feven Kiflegiorgis, Fox 5 Las Vegas’ morning weekday anchor. The Las Vegas Review-Journal reported that Kiflegiorgis, who is known as Feven Kay, was busted nude and asleep behind the wheel of her Audi at about 7:30 a.m. March 20. Kiflegiorgis said she could not remember how she got to the location where she was found. The report didn’t explain why she was fully naked either.

    From a tourist destination and business oasis that once attracted some of the richest people in the world and gave visitors the illusion of glitz and glamour to a shithole overrun by gangs, degenerate drug addicts, disease-ridden bums, and people bent on destroying our city, Las Vegas now looks more like a third-world country than a place to put on your travel bucket list. Today, you can’t walk the Las Vegas strip without being bombarded by signs telling you to mask up and bizarre recordings telling people to maintain their social distance. But the so-called pandemic is the least of...

    LAS VEGAS (AP) - A county board voted unanimously Tuesday to rename busy McCarran International Airport in Las Vegas after former U.S. Sen. Harry Reid of Nevada. The all-Democratic Clark County Commission approved a measure directing the county’s airport staff to file a change with the Federal Aviation Administration renaming the facility Harry Reid International Airport. The county commission oversees the airport and is the final authority on a name change. There have been longstanding calls to rename the airport. Its current namesake, former Nevada Sen. Patrick McCarran, served as one of Nevada’s two U.S. senators from 1933 until his...

    I’ve been a Las Vegas oddsmaker and sports gaming expert for four decades- long before I became known as a nationally syndicated conservative talk show host. I understand odds and gambling in a way that no other conservative media personality, host, or politician in this country could. And I can tell you something is very wrong with this presidential election. It reminds me of a fixed football game. Remember the famous fixed 1978 game between the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. The Giants quarterback handed the ball off. The running back didn’t want it. It fell on the ground....

    Around 7 a.m. on Sunday, several cars were driving recklessly along Las Vegas' Hollywood Blvd toward Sahara Blvd, witnesses told police, according to KSNV News 3. The witnesses said that a passenger in a minivan was hanging halfway out of the car, attempting to strike people on the sidewalk. The passenger missed two pedestrians, but then struck a middle-aged woman riding in the bicycle lane further down the road, according to KSNV. "While driving down Hollywood Boulevard, they pulled along-side a female bicyclist and the passenger leaned out of the vehicle window and pushed her to the ground," a press release...

    **SNIP** Speaking on Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight” later that evening, he said that the problem as it pertains to signatures is two-fold. First, the machines that process ballots in Clark County have had their signature accuracy threshold reduced from 80/90 percent to 40 percent. Second, if a bad ballot makes it through the machine, “there’s no way to challenge that.” **SNIP** And even if the ballot fails to make it through the machine because less than 40 percent of the signature on it matches the signature on file, there’s still a chance of the ballot being counted. “If it’s...
