2 Dead, 2 Injured in North Las Vegas Shooting

Posted: Updated:

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev., -- Two men are dead and two women are in critical condition after a shooting at a North Las Vegas apartment near Lake Mead Boulevard and Civic Center Drive.

Police responded to a duplex at around 6 a.m. after neighbors reported hearing gunshots. When police arrived, they found four victims inside. Police do not believe this was a random shooting, but say the suspect is not among the victims.

"It is the kind of thing that shocks neighbors and family members, and you do worry, and particularly where you live. It's scary," said North Las Vegas Police Sgt. Tim Bedwell. "We don't think this is somebody just going around randomly shooting people."

Police have not released a description of the suspect at this time, but they are speaking with neighbors and think there may be some witnesses to the shooting. Police say when they are trying to solve a case like this, they look at the history of the area, past crime at the residence and they talk to people that live nearby.

They also hope that the female victims will pull through and will be able to shed some light on the case to give them a better description of who shot them and the two men who were killed in this attack.
