Gunman Fires on Siegfried & Roy's Home
Authorities initially labeled the drive-by shooting as a hate crime but later said a patrol officer had misclassified the case.
According to a police report obtained by the Associated Press, a gardener who witnessed the incident said he saw the gunman driving the van as it cruised twice past the compound about 6:15 p.m. on Sept. 21.
Police spokesman Jose Montoya said shotgun pellets smashed two windows and left a 12-in. hole in the house. He did not know whether Fischbacher and Horn were home at the time. No injuries were reported.
A spokesman for the entertainers declined comment, calling the case a police matter.
Montoya did not identify the suspect but said police traced the registration of the van and a warrant had been issued.
Police announced the shooting on Monday, a day after Horn had an at-home celebration with friends to mark his 60th birthday. Sunday was also the one-year anniversary of his near-fatal tiger encounter that left him partially paralyzed and shuttered for good the long-running Siegfried & Roy show.
