A woman suffers non-life-threatening injuries in a Thursday shooting

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A woman has been arrested after shooting another woman inside a downtown Las Vegas hotel, Metro Police said.

Brittney Valentine faces a battery charge with a deadly weapon for the incident inside the Downtown Grand Hotel & Casino.

Police said they were called to the hotel around 9.40am Thursday after a woman came down to the hotel lobby, claiming she had been shot in the chest.

According to the police, the victim and Valentine, who were on the same floor and were in hotel rooms close to each other, had an argument.

Video evidence obtained by police showed the victim and a man exiting their bedroom as Valentine walked by, police said. The trio then argued. The victim walked through Valentine’s bedroom door before the shooting, police said.

When speaking to police, the victim told officers that the shooting may “have been karma” and that “her mouth often gets her into trouble”, investigators said.

A judge set Valentine’s bail at $10,000.

The woman’s injuries were ruled non-fatal, police said.
