They were looking to live high on the hog.

Police said three people wearing dress clothing - suits or tuxedoes - and animal masks smashed the windows, grabbed items from inside the store and fled.

Local reports suggest the shooting is linked to an attempted armed raid on a Rolex shop inside the hotel.

Bellagio is a casino, resort, luxury hotel and resort on the Las Vegas Strip in Paradise, Nevada. No one was injured.

Early reports on social media of shots being fired at the busy casino and hotel were false and there were no injuries, the Las Vegas Police Department said on Twitter.

Police said emergency calls initially indicated an active shooter on the scene after witnesses heard gunshots, but Lt. When it wouldn't start, they tried to carjack someone else, and then tried to run away, the Sun reported. That's when the swine, apparently, was corralled.

Terror strikes again, this time in one of the most popular states in America. The Bellagio is home to several high-end jewelry and watch stores, including Tiffany, Tesorini, Omega and Harry Winston.
