Two women were killed and one man hospitalized following a fight and car-to-car shooting on the Las Vegas Strip Friday morning, police said.

Two women were killed and one man hospitalized following a fight and car-to-car shooting on the Las Vegas Strip Friday morning, police said.

The incident began with a fight between two women and four men on the third floor of the parking garage for the Miracle Mile Shops at Planet Hollywood, according to KTNV, our sister station in Las Vegas.

Surveillance video from the Miracle Mile Shops parking lot shows security guards breaking up the scuffle near the southern end of the tourism hot spot at about 1:30 a.m. The video also shows a man with a gun get into a 2015 Toyota Camry moments later.

Shots were then fired from the Camry into a silver Hyundai near Polaris and W. Harmon avenues.

"We're trying to piece it all together but we do know there was a fight involving two females and up to four black males, and there's three vehicles involved," Las Vegas police Lt. Dan McGrath said.

The Hyundai then rolled to a stop in the valet area of The Cosmopolitan hotel-casino after bumping into another vehicle.

The female driver, who was found slumped behind the steering wheel, died from her injuries. The wounded man in the car was taken to University Medical Center in Las Vegas and has been in surgery. The hospital said he remains in critical condition.

A third victim, a woman who was left lying in the street, also succumbed to her injuries. The women have not been identified pending notification of next of kin.

McGrath says no one is in custody. No further details were immediately released.
