A shooting at Drai's nightclub in Las Vegas this morning has left at least 1 person dead and 2 others injured ... TMZ has learned.

Here's what went down ... witnesses tell TMZ a person, who appeared to be a white male, was loitering in the cashier area of the famous after-hours club around 5:45 AM. 

When the man was approached by a club employee and asked to move, the suspect pulled out a gun and started yelling back at the staff.

One witness tells us someone in the area (not a member of the security team) tried to apprehend the suspect ... and that's when shots began to ring out.

We're told at least one person died from a gunshot and at least 2 others were injured.

The man was eventually taken into custody.

Drai's has been a staple in Vegas for years -- and has been popular with huge stars like Paris Hilton and Nick Cannon.

With all the Douchebags that populate Las Vegas every weekend, trying to act as if they're big time, I'm surpized this doesn't more often. Someone puts a table on their Credit Card and they think they're a super star. Real VIP's don't pay.

This sounds like another case of the obama-loving media initially and falsely identifying shooters as "appearing to be a white male," only later to be corrected, as in the Washington Navy Yard massacre, which was perpetrated by -- WAIT FOR IT -- a black male. What a surprise!

As a Vegas native I hate to see how it has changed. No one would have the balls to bring a gun into a casino back in the 80's or earlier. Today nobody feels they need to account for their actions. I would assume that the man had a certain target in mind. The radio stations out here (Vegas) are saying to stay off strip unless your going to work on the strip.

Perhaps he was ticked off by how much those Vegas casino clubs charge for entry and drinks.

This kind of crap never happened when the mob ran Vegas, back in those days it was a safe clean place.

Latest news is, the suspect was wanting his money back (after being in the club for awhile) saying it wasn't as packed as he had hoped. Maybe he was planning a mass shooting? The first security guard and manager asked him to leave after a verbal fight and he shot the manager in the arm and then the security guard. Another guard comes up and is shot trying to subdue the suspect. A patron of the club is then shot and killed in a fight with the man trying to get the gun away. So one shot a patron of the club and killed and three employees shot all males
