Multiple reports indicate that a woman employee was apprehended in the early hours of Tuesday following gunfire at the Moonlite BunnyRanch Brothel located in Mound House, Nevada.
The incident occurred at approximately 9:30 p.m., and according to Carson Now News, Lyon County Sheriff Brad Pope reported that his office received a call about a disagreement between two colleagues at the lawful brothel.
As law enforcement arrived on the premises, they heard gunshots and subsequently initiated the evacuation of the establishment.
According to Sheriff Pope, the alleged shooter took refuge in a room within the brothel, prompting the deployment of a crisis negotiation team and multiple tactical units to aid in the situation.
Deputies utilized a loudspeaker to communicate with the barricaded employee, urging her to exit the building with her hands raised.
Carson Now News disclosed that the female worker surrendered peacefully to authorities around 12:30 a.m.
The number of individuals present at the brothel during the shooting is unclear, although News 4-Fox 11 reported that no one was harmed, according to Carson City Sheriff Ken Furlong.
Prior to his passing in 2018, the Moonlite Bunny Ranch was under the ownership of Dennis Hof. The establishment was showcased on the HBO show Cathouse.
