UPDATE: Vegas casino exec shot dead by disgruntled employee during company picnic, cops say

The victim of a violent homicide at an event for employees of a Las Vegas casino this week has been identified.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, 42-year-old Anthony Wrobel was soon identified as a suspect in the shooting at Sunset Park Sunday.

He was described as a Venetian Hotel employee who fatally shot a female victim in her head and chest, killing her. The shooting also left another attendee critically injured.

A police statement Tuesday identified the woman killed in the attack as 54-year-old Mia Banks, an executive at the resort and casino.

The property’s parent company confirmed she had been employed at the Venetian since it opened nearly 20 years ago, working her way up to vice president of casino operations, the position she held at the time of her death.

Police say another executive, Hector Rodriguez, was also shot. Details regarding the extent of his injuries were not available as of the latest updates.

According to Fox News, Wrobel approached a table at the a company picnic where both victims were seated and opened fire. He had reportedly worked at the Venetian for 14 years.

The suspect’s vehicle was later located at a nearby airport terminal but he has not been located as of the latest reports available.

As the Las Vegas Sun reported, the Las Vegas Sands Corp., which owns the Venetian, has announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to Wrobel’s arrest.

The company released a statement expressing its sympathy for “both families, and everyone who has been affected by this senseless act of violence.”
