Makes you wonder how these bad guys got their guns; where did they come from, and how did they go from legal to illegal?
From Reuters and the AP by way of MSNBC:

Gunman fires on mourners of man killed on Las Vegas strip

Suspect mingled with funeral-goers before shooting 7 people, police say

LAS VEGAS — A gunman who at first appeared to mingle with funeral-goers on Wednesday later sprayed bullets at those paying respects to a man stabbed to death on the Las Vegas strip, police said.
"An individual ... wearing a red shirt approached a group of mourners who were outside the funeral and appeared to mingle," police spokesman Bill Cassel said. "After a few moments this individual opened fire."
The victims' injuries were not life-threatening. Cassell said six adults and one juvenile were wounded.
The incident occurred at just before 7 p.m. local time (10 p.m. ET) at the Palm Mortuary,
The Las Vegas Sun reported.
Cassell said police were looking for a white car with spoke chrome rims and a purple and brown design on the side as a vehicle of interest in the case.
Police do not know if the shooting was gang-related or how it was tied to Elena's stabbing, The Sun reported.
