(donald trump/(r) presidential candidate) "wrong. that's wrong. totally wrong." (sen. marco rubio/(r) presidential candidate) "people can look it up. i'm sure people are googling it right now. trump polish workers, you'll see a million dollars for hiring illegal workers on one of his projects. (applause)" )) ((paula francis)) rubio also took aim at trump over health care ... pressuring him to give details on how he would replace the affordable care act. the two men both accused each other of repeating themselves... then trump called rubio a "choke artist" and cruz a liar. 12 states will vote on super tuesday./// ((paula francis)) 8 news now is your local election headquarters... for everything and anything in this election year... on air and online at las vegas now dot com./// ((dave courvoisier)) > there's been another mass shooting in america. at least four people, including the gunman, are dead. it happened in south-central kansas this afternoon.

critically. it happened inside excel industries, which makes lawn mower products, and the suspect was an employee. one woman's husband survived the shooting... and she later learned the suspect was their neighbor: (( victim's wife: "i'm just glad i heard my husband's voice, but i won't be happy until i see him in person. you know? i feel like i'm in a nightmare right now, you know? i just can't believe that the guy that shot people up lived right across the street from us." )) ((dave courvoisier)) possible identities of the shooter have been made public online... but law enforcement is yet to confirm. the motive is not known. law enforcement shot the man dead./// ((paula francis)) > caught on camera.... this is video provided to 8 news now by a resident in the southwest valley... showing a small group...driving down a residential neighborhood.... appearing to rummage through cars. homeowners we spoke with say they are not aware of anything being stolen, but they are disturbed by what the video shows: ((jeff sarachman/resid ent "it looked like they had it down. this wasn't their first time doing it.
11:09 pm
i mean, it looked like they had their system down, with the guy driving and the guy like i think you could see his head come out of the sun roof looking out and one guy on either side running and just hitting it pretty fast." )) ((paula francis)) jeff sarachman tells us he and his family were home when this happened around 9:30 last night.... he says it's unfortunate you can't make out the license plate number, but he's hoping showing the video provided by his neighbor could help find these guys. if you have any information, call crime stoppers.// ((dave courvoisier)) > iron mike tyson sits down with the i-team's george knapp... and takes on some questions you've never heard him answer before... that's just ahead. but first, no doubt you've noticed... the price of a night out on the strip is outrageous -- even laughable. paul joncich wants to know... are we near the tipping point? next.///

vegas local knows you're going to pay a little more for food and drinks on the strip. but how much is too much when it comes to the prices they charge? 8 news now anchor paul joncich says one local comedian finds the prices so outrageous, it's laughable.. < club doorman: "look, the only way you guys are getting in is vip bottle service." actor: "i got that, no this is on us. 18. okay here's my friend ten and
11:13 pm
your warmth and hospitality." doorman: "18 hundred!" actor: "18 hundred what?" doorman :"18 hundred dollars.!" ((paul joncich)) this scene from the movie last vegas says it all.. anyone who remembers old vegas is stunned by today's prices on the strip. and sometimes it seems they charge whatever they want. $16.95 for a shrimp cocktail at mon ami gabi. $19 dollars for a hamburger at gordon ramsay pub $36 dollars for fried chicken and waffles at yardbird. restaurants and clubs aren't the only ones playing the high price game.. ((11:27:29 brent mukai/local comedian: "i'm from hawaii so we took trips when i was a kids and we went to the m & m store and i remember thinking, oh my god, these m & m's are so expensive.")) ((paul joncich)) brent mukai is a local comedian who makes fun of outrageous prices on the strip....and the people who pay them. ((11:31:42 brent mukai/comedian: "you're paying almost to feel really good about yourself. and people are willing to spend it because they want to feel
11:14 pm
a baller and come to vegas and be the guy throwing off $100 bills and women are just hanging on him lotioning him up....11:31:32:02 that's the vegas....thing that people want.")) ((paul joncich)) he's describing what the industry calls "the vegas experience." judging by our record number of visitors, it's something many are willing to pay for. but is there a tipping point? are we in danger of turning people off by outrageously high prices? (("11:23 paul hobson/stratos phere hotel: "we try to scratch that itch any way we can")) ((paul joncich)) say hello to paul hobson. the general manager of the stratosphere. the one behind a campaign making fun of what las vegas has become. ((actor: "look, i appreciate a good cocktail but i don't need lavender blossom bitters and ice chipped from an alaskan glacier, or a pickled kale garnish when i order one. sometimes i just want a drink.")) ((paul joncich)) hobson is marketing the strat to people who prefer old vegas. ((11:21;37 paul hobson/stratop here hotel: "and that ordinary person is who we are trying to make feel comfortable's like hey man there's a place in las vegas for you too.")) ((paul joncich)) instead of 12 dollar
11:15 pm
still not cheap, but it's a start, and hobson says it seems to be working. ((11:22;09 hobson: "we're just hearing a lot of amens....")) ((paul joncich)) meanwhile, for those who prefer vip bottle service, there will always be plenty of places on the strip to get it....and comedians making fun of it. ((11:32:55 brent mukai/comedian: "it's like i'm the king with the table, come sit and dine and feast on my cranberry juice and the quarter bottle of sky vodka i have left, you know, but that's what people come for.)) ((paul joncich)) here's where it stops being funny. according to a unlv economist, 18-hundred dollars for vip bottle service is not outrageous if people are willing to pay for it. in other words, don't expect the prices to come down anytime soon. what's the most outrageous price you've paid on the strip, go to our facebook page to tells us you story.
