An employee was shot Wednesday inside the Trump Taj Mahal Casino Resort and died soon afterward, and a suspect was in custody, the casino's CEO said. Ray Kot was a shift manager who had been with the casino since the day it opened in 1990. "He was the loveliest human being you ever want to meet," said Mark Juliano, CEO of Trump Entertainment Resorts, which runs the casino. "He didn't have an enemy in the world." Juliano said there did not appear to be a dispute between Kot and the shooter, whose identity wasn't immediately disclosed. Kot was shot three to four times in a nonpublic office just off the casino floor, Juliano said. He was taken to a medical center, where he died several hours later following surgery.
