>> to have a team -- you got to have players. well.. an expansion draft is still several months away. ((denise valdez)) >> the actual draft takes place june 18th through the 20th. each n-h-l team has to choose a certain amount of players to be available for the draft -- so there's a good chance you could see some big names on the ice here in las vegas./// ((denise valdez)) >> and finally.. what about season tickets.. is it too late to join in on the fun?

meanwhile ... a possible setback on the football front after city officials in oakland say they've found a way to keep the raiders in the bay area -- and stop the team from coming to las vegas. shakala alvaranga has the details. ((shakala alvaranga)) dave, it's not the best news for those hoping the raiders will make the move. an agreement has apparently been reached by the mayor of oakland and a private investor group -- that's willing to fund a new stadium for the team. "the raiders belong in oakland. this is where they were born and raised they are part of our identity." ((shakala alvaranga)) the raider nation rejoices. "we know that we've got to be competitive to get the raiders attention. that's what we're intending to do. this is one small step in a complicated deal." ((shakala alvaranga)) mayor libby schaaf says the city has found a partner in the fight to keep the raiders in oakland -- the lott group. "we're excited that for the first time we're working
not just the passion to keep the raiders in oakland but also the capacity to put upfront the amount of capital it will take to privately finance a stadium." ((shakala alvaranga)) schaaf, who has adamantly opposed using public money for the stadium, was tight-lipped about the deal but says financially ... it works. "private money would go to build the stadium, whereas we would only use new revenues generated by the project itself." ((shakala alvaranga)) framework announcement, nevada governor brian sandoval says: "i trust mark davis. i take him at his word. i will continue to monitor the process established by the nfl." the raiders did not respond to a request for comment tuesday. but schaaf says owner mark davis is aware of the framework. "it's my job to bring him a real deal that is competitive with las vegas or any other market and that is what i'm hoping to have the opportunity to do
the plan still needs approval by the oakland city council. it will be brought to the board in a closed session next tuesday. shakala alvaranga 8 news now. ((denise valdez)) one man is dead and the search is on for his killer. it started as a call for shots fire in the 51-hundred block of east twain near nellis. now it's a homicide investigation. reporter brittany edney was first on the sn brittany? ((brittany edney)) >> i'm told when responders first arrived on scene, two people were performing cpr trying to save the victim but the male in his 20's-to-maybe early 30's did die on scene. while police say there was at least one witness, they're still trying to figure out what exactly happened. and it's still too early in the case to pinpoint an exact motive or give a suspect description. but a witness told police they
then get on nellis. there's still no word yet as to whether this could have been gang or narcotics related. investigators say when the shooting happened... people did the right thing and alerted police. ((sgt matthew sanford, metro police "this time of year there tends to be more interaction with public and sometimes that interaction leads to shootings and sometimes homicides. so just be vigilent, be aware of your surroundings. if you see or hear something happening, please call 911 don't approach people and let the police handle it." )) it >> this is the 153rd homicide in metro's jurisdiction this year... anyone with any information on this case can make an anonymous call to crimestoppers. reporting live, brittany edney, 8 news now./// ((denise valdez)) >> cyber attacks.. happening right here in the valley. and it seems casinos could be easy targets. ((dave courvoisier)) >> we're talking about hackers... major local corporations.. and ransom.. we connect the dots..
this is 8 news now at eleven." ((dave courvoisier)) tonight.. part two of our i-team investigation into cyber security, anyone can fall victim to cyber crime. ((denise valdez)) >> but hackers have zeroed in on some large targets here in las vegas: hotels and casinos. the i-team's vanessa murphy tells us it's an expensive -- dark secret that few want to admit bei
protect customer information... none would agree to any interviews and no official comments. ((jonathan: nobody wants to show where they're weak. and i think that's one of the problems that we have in terms of responding to cyber security threats.)) ((vanessa murphy)) jonathan narveson is a managing director at accenture - a global company which helps businesses with technology. ((jonathan: whether you're talking industry wide in banking, in insurance, in casinos, across the board, cyber crime is a vey those firms.)) ((vanessa murphy)) turns out iranian hackers may have been to blame for the attack against international gaming giant las vegas sands - the venetian and palazzo websites were taken down and employee personal information was stolen... according to bloomberg, damage was estimated at 40-million dollars. ((jonathan: we see it from the cyber activists who
know, the old classic college guy in a bedroom in his basement who's doing the attacks.)) ((vanessa murphy)) arresting the hackers rarely happens... ((adam pranter/fbi: how many we can actually get our hands, that's become harder and harder because the nature of the internet, right? is such that you know every corner of the world can attack anyone anywhere else so vegas isn't immune to that.)) ((vanessa murphy)) pranter runs the f-b-i cyber squad in las vegas. he says cyber attacks have cost businesses in the valley millions - and the i-team has learned that's for a variety of reasons... ((vanessa murphy/reporter: are companies paying ransom to hackers? adam: i believe some companies are paying ransom to hackers. yes. we advise that they not pay ransom you know for the same reason we don't want to keep that - because they're making money off these - we don't want to keep that organization having
often times - hackers will lock information until digital currency is transferred in a nearly untraceable way - and when a company's livelihood is threatened - well....they send the money. ((vanessa murphy/reporter: have any if your local clients paid ransom? troy wilkinson/axiom: yes.)) ((vanessa murphy)) troy wilkinson runs axiom cyber solutions which provides security for businesses in las ga ((troy: we never recommend paying the ransom simply because we're going to encourage this behavior.)) ((vanessa murphy)) the businesses end up funding the enemy. and since there's no requirement to report any attack or whether ransom is paid...the problem is difficult to get ahold of and fight. ((adam: it's difficult for me as well to quantify a lot of what is going on out there.)) ((vanessa murphy)) the head of the nevada gaming control board would not agree to an on camera interview....
property has affected gaming operations... and businesses are encouraged to report any attacks - but again they are not required... ((troy: it's the perfect storm of hackers having the ability to take advantage of open vulnerabilities.))

((denise valdez)) >> the runnin' rebels were in action tonight... chris ((chris maathuis)) >> first it was the big name reveal party.. now we'll see if the rebels are celebrating tonight. the runnin' rebels hosting northern arizona and they'd need a paul bunyon type effort to beat the lumberjacks. plus.. the battle for the fremont cannon is only days away...
coach marvin menzies have gotta be feeling marvelous after tonight's showing. unlv facing northern arizona. fans will buy in if the rebs up this kind of an effort... very impressive performance by the home team. rebels were on fire tonight... shooting 55 percent in the first half... kris clyburn two of his 8. this is what fans like to see and menzies promised the rebels runnin.. six players finished in double digits. unlv had 26 fast break points.. and led 53-25 at the break. even guys who probably shouldn't be poppin' three's were poppin' threes... rebs hit 11 of em in the game. unlv scored 60 points in the paint and scored 27 points off nau's 16 turnovers. ya know where this is going... unlv playing very confident and as a team... they had 26 assists tonight.

((chris maathuis)) it certainly was special... 110 points if fun to watch... now what will they do for an encore... rebels host tcu at the mack on friday night. ((chris maathuis)) unlv's biggest game of the year is coming up this saturday and the cannon is painted red.
up north, where the pack seems to have lost its way. reno will show up... but the wolf pack's bark isn't what is used to be. tony sanchez and his rebels stormed reno and came away with an impressive win last year.. and they fully expect to do the same thing at home this week. tony sanchez/coach: "we want to send sr. off on a good note, it been since the john robinson years since they've been able to win two in a row and send the seniors off with a win so it's a big deal.. we want to send them off the right way. ryan mcaleenan/sr. linebacker: "no matter if we went to a bowl game, it doesn't matter everyone is fun game, most of the time it close, so it'll be a fun saturday. tony sanchez/coach: "last opportunity to walk out and be a rebel and fight for a win, that's special. all of us who played had that opportunity and you never forget it." ((chris maathuis))
((denise valdez)) and we take you to fresno.. for a hair raising rescue. fat boy -- the cat -- has been stuck on top of an electric pole more than a week! seems like he was trying to get away from a dog.. and couldn't get down on his own. after several agencies refused to help -- the electric company shut off power to about 200 homes for a couple of hours -- so workers could reach him. fat boy was hungry ans thirsty -- but should be okay. /// ((dave courvoisier)) that's all for us live at eleven.
