((richard broome/caesars entertainment corp: "even if the main power gets cut you have back up generators just for that purpose and that didn't work so we're going to be working closely with the county and local officials to make sure we have a back up system is functional when the main power goes down." )) ((mauricio marin)) however...clark county building inspectors say emergency lights did work---using battery power. ((samuel palmer/clark
5:02 pm
"emergency lighting system performed very well. the battery packs only last about 45 minutes to an hour. but the emergency systems along with the suppression systems did perform very well." )) ((mauricio marin)) once the lights came back on---battery packs were re-energized before guests were let back inside. ((elaine mckenzie/paris hotel guest: "at our age we've been though a lot so this is not a big deal." )) ((mauricio marin)) elaine and gary are just glad they were able to go a day without their medicine left in the room.

temporary repairs yesterday? ((mauricio marin)) hotel leaders say this is a permanent fix. the repairs took longer than they had hoped for but don't anticipate any problems moving forward. back to you./// ((denise valdez)) frustrated guests left comments on our facebook page... derek said: going to cost someone a lot of $$$$ whoever caused this and nanci suggested: why i always take a coupe think out of the box people. you can leave your thoughts on 8 news now facebook page./// ((denise valdez)) one police sergeant in new york has been killed in the line of duty -- and another shot after a confrontation with a robbery suspect. it happened in the bronx. the robbery suspect was killed in the exchange of gunfire. the condition of the second officer is not known. the officers have not been identified./// ((dave courvoisier)) today is the last day for early voting. this is a live look at the
5:04 pm
tropical parkway. it is one of 97 around the valley. some locations are open until 8 .. but many do close at 7 so make sure you check times first before you head to one of the locations. ((dave courvoisier)) >> a record number of nevadans have voted early. through thursday.... more than 680-thousand nevadans had voted.. that total could go above 700-thousand by the end of today. more people registered as democrats have voted than those registered as republican... percent. about 20 percent are non-partisan or independent so far. more people early vote than on election day... so more than half the votes are likely in. however democrats are more likely to vote early.. and republicans tend to vote more on election day itself./// ((dave courvoisier)) and you can thank a lot of outside group spending for all those ads filling up the airwaves. so far outside pacs and super- pacs have spent 80 million dollars on the senate race between catherine cortez masto and joe heck..
5:05 pm
org. the candidates have spent nearly 27 million.. pushing well above 100 million dollars total. and more pac and super-pac money has been spent on nevada's congressional district 3 race... than any other in the country. so far those groups have poured 14 point 7 million into the race between danny tarkanian and jacky rosen for an open seat. in 2014... just under 2 million was spent on that race./// ((denise valdez)) still no charges yet in about six months. three las vegas men we're arrested for damaging federal property. they face several charges including killing an endangered species, destruction of property and trespassing. sharie johnson did some digging to see why there are no charges from either the county or feds? ((sharie johnson)) the men we're arrested then released from nye county. that's because they expected federal charges. but those have yet to come.
5:06 pm
feds wouldn't explain why. the pupfish only live in one spot... devils hole... which is right here on the ash meadows wildlife refuge. and it was back in april when this surveillance video was taken.. showing three men men... 29-year-old steven schwinkendorf, 35-year-old edgar reyes and 26-year-old trenton sargent... vandalizing a pupfish habitat. it's believed the intrusion caused the death of one pupfish. it was one of 115 endangered desert fish. the men are accused of spraying gunfire, tossing beer cans, vomiting and even skinny-dipping in devils hole. nye county's sheriff's office

5:12 pm
ask yourself: if joe heck was on your side, why did he threaten to shut down the government on his crusade to defund planned parenthood? when he called nevada's foreclosure crisis a "blip"? and why did joe heck put payday lenders and their shameful interest rates first when he took their money? nevada, it's time to put people before the corporate special interests. it's time to vote no on joe heck. senate majority pac is responsible
5:13 pm
i'm catherine cortez masto and i approve this message. as a doctor, i see how decisions in washington impact my patients here in nevada. so even though i'm a republican, i won't be voting for joe heck. joe heck's voted ten times to defund planned parenthood, which thousands of women depend on for cancer screenings. and heck opposes a woman's right to choose even when her health is at risk. for me and my patients,

5:15 pm
noticed something suspicious about the one he got near neonopolis. he wrote me on facebook saying he was suspcious of the parking ticket from the city of las vegas ... because he was supposed to send his payment to an address in los angeles. and i get it .. that sounds pretty weird ... but there is a reason for it . according to the city's website ... bank of america was chosen through a competitive their banking servcies ... and b-of-a's central payment processing center is in l-a. it's is a safe and secure way to send the money .. and it is deposited directly into the city's account... according to the blurb on their site. so there's the answer. it's 100% legit. and while i couldn't fix that parking ticket for chris .. i was glad to put his mind at ease as to where his money was going.
