What Progressives will not acknowledge

A man arrested for allegedly shooting five people at a 50th birthday party in Las Vegas, Nevada, had been deported four times previously and pled guilty to kidnapping.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said that 36-year-old Alberto Santacruz shot a man in the leg after a heated argument at a party on Sunday morning with about 100 people attending. As he was running away, he allegedly shot four other people but was chased down and tackled by the other partygoers, who held him down until police could arrive.

Police were called to the home at about 12:54 a.m. where they found the five victims and took Santacruz into custody.

Witnesses at the party said that nine shots were fired by the suspect.

Police said that the man was initially uncooperative and had an identification card from Mexico that they later determined to be fraudulent. After an investigation, they determined the man was Santacruz. 

Santacruz is facing a slew of charges, including five charges of attempted murder, five charges of battery, two charges of discharging a gun, and charges of a prohibited person owning a gun.

Of the five victims who were transported to University Medical Center for treatment, two were admitted with critical injuries from gunshot wounds to the back and chest.
