Members of a male dance troupe were caught up in a terrifying shooting in Las Vegas on Tuesday night (18Mar14) when they caught an armed man in their backstage dressing room.

The stars of Australia's Thunder from Down Under, a strip group featured on U.S. Tv shows including Project Runway, Drop Dead Diva and The Tyra Banks Show, are said to have found a man rifling through their belongings following their show at the Excalibur Hotel & Casino.

The strippers confronted the suspected thief, who allegedly pulled a gun on the group and the weapon was fired in the subsequent struggle, according to the Las Vegas Review-Journal.

One of the dancers suffered minor facial injuries from the gunshot and a suspect was arrested at the scene.
