LAS VEGAS (AP) - A juvenile passerby was injured Friday night after officers fired on a man who was walking in and out of traffic on the Las Vegas Strip waving a gun and pointing at people, the Las Vegas Sun reports (https://bit.ly/20kf7CA .)

Capt, Matt McCarthy tells that Sun that at about 7:30 p.m., officers arrived in front of the Bellagio casino and confronted the man, the Sun reports.
