The incident occurred on the third floor of the Planet Hollywood parking garage, KVVU reported. It stemmed from a robbery at the Sunglass Hut inside the Miracle Mile shops, as two men stole an undisclosed amount of merchandise, the Las Vegas Journal-Review reported.

Police said “one or two” security guards were shot, adding there were no serious injuries, KVVU reported.

One guard was shot in the hand and a second guard was shot in the neck, the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported. Both were taken to  the hospital. Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Michael Rodriguez said their injuries “were not considered life-threatening.”

A spokesman for the Miracle Mile Shops released a statement confirming the shooting and said the retail outlet is “cooperating fully” with the police, KVVU reported.
