Tribal Casino Crimewatch: Gang Shooting at Tribal Casino

A 15 year old boy was shot, while at a tribal casino in N. California.

An early morning shooting at a local casino left two people wounded and five people under arrest, according to authorities. A crime all caught on a network of security cameras keeping a 24-hour watch in and outside the casino.

The Amador County Sheriff's department said five suspects walked into the Jackson Rancheria Casino in Jackson at about 5:00 a.m. Sunday morning and confronted a group of people playing slot machines near Uncle Bud's restaurant.

During the course of the argument, one of the suspects allegedly pulled out a small caliber pistol and opened fire, striking two teens, ages 18 and 15. One teen was shot in the face and the other was shot in the neck.

Both victims were rushed to the hospital and are expected to survive.

The suspects fled into the parking garage, where three were detained immediately. The other two suspects were located Sunday afternoon trying to hitch hike on Highway 88, according to authorities.

Tribal Casino's breed crime, even though publicity is scarce. The Pechanga Casino in Temecula had to shut down their nightclubs due to thuggish behavior and their tribal members have carjacked people in front of their own casino.
