Man shoots, kills self inside M Resort

HENDERSON, Nev. (AP) -- The man who opened fire at a suburban Las Vegas casino-resort on Easter Sunday reportedly says he killed himself after being banned and accused of harassing female buffet workers.

Police say the man was found dead with an apparent self-inflicted wound around 5 p.m. Sunday near the buffet at M Resort Spa and Casino in Henderson. At the same time, a car fire was reported in the parking garage. Police said on Monday the car fire was linked to the suicide.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal said Monday that it received a package from John Noble.

The Las Vegas man had said the casino gave him a free lifetime gift of daily buffet meals but revoked it over alleged harassment of the restaurant employees.

The package contained nearly 300 pages, photos and a DVD.

The casino could not immediately be reached for comment.

'Brady's Bill' to ease penalties of underage drinkers

LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas mother is teaming up with a valley teen in an effort to change a Nevada law involving underage drinking.

Kimberly Caipa and 18-year-old Rose Asaf introduce State Senate Bill 464 to the State Senate Judiciary Committee Monday. SB 464, also known as 'Brady's Bill,' will give immunity to minors who were drinking if they end up having to call 911 to help a fellow teen.

"We want to stress that SB 464 addresses concerns about underage drinking by empowering young people to make the right and responsible decision to seek medical assistance without hesitation and without fear of legal consequences," said Rose Asaf, Nevada Youth Legislature.

Similar laws already exist in 23 states and the District of Columbia.
