Las Vegas (AP) Police have made an arrest in Tuesday's school bus stop shootings in Las Vegas that injured six young people.

The suspect, identified as 18-year-old Nicco Tatum, was arrested in Denver last night after authorities got a tip that he was headed to Chicago by bus.

Tatum is being held in the Denver City Jail on a hold from Las Vegas.

It's expected Tatum will be booked on six counts each of battery and attempted murder.

At least four of the victims have been released from the hospital. Doctors have upgraded the condition of an 18-year-old from critical to serious.

Information about a 17-year-old is being kept private. He was earlier reported to be in serious condition.

Las Vegas police say they think the shooting stemmed from an earlier fight at a high school over a girl.
