Two women have been killed and a man wounded in a shooting on the Las Vegas Strip.

Police said the shootings happened after a fight broke out at Planet Hollywood at the southern end of the tourist hotspot.

Officers were called after a car drove into the valet parking area of the nearby Cosmopolitan hotel-casino with a fatally injured woman and a wounded man inside. A second woman was found in the street at the scene of the shooting and died hours later.

The injured man was taken to University Medical Centre.

Police say they are reviewing surveillance video of the fight.

The shots were fired from one car into another after an argument at the Miracle Mile shops.

Surveillance video shows a scuffle, which is broken up by security guards, and a man with a gun gets into a 2015 Toyota Camry moments later.

Police said shots were fired from the Camry into a Hyundai, which then rolled to a stop, bumping another vehicle with a woman slumped behind the wheel.
