Man killed in 'random' stabbing at Muckleshoot Casino

A man was killed in a "random" stabbing at the Muckleshoot Casino early Sunday morning, Auburn Police say.

Around 1:30 a.m., Auburn Police got a call about a stabbing inside the casino.

Police spokesperson, Kolby Crossley says a 29-year-old man was standing at one of the tables when another man came up behind him and stabbed him in the neck.

"It’s a scary and terrible situation that occurred and this person had no idea what was going to happen to them," remarked Crossley. "This happened at the casino on the casino floor. So, there were a lot of people around, there were cameras."

The man later died, and the suspect is in custody.

The suspect and victim had no contact with each other before the stabbing, with police labeling it as a "random incident."

"We’re going to figure out why and how and what drove this person to act so heinously," shared Crossley.

No one else was injured in the stabbing.

This incident remains under investigation.

This is a developing story.
