HENDERSON, Nev. -- A 23-year-old Las Vegas man was shot in the Galleria Mall parking lot shortly after 9:30 a.m. Saturday.
Henderson police officers say the man got into a verbal confrontation with another man inside the mall. The victim exited the mall followed by the suspect. The suspect fired several shots, striking the victim in the arm.
The victim was transported to the Sunrise Hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
The suspect fled the parking lot and has not been apprehended yet. He is described as a black male in his early 20's, last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and black pants.
Anyone with information in this case is urged to call the Henderson Police Department at (702) 267-4750 or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
Some medical providers say they often deal with Hispanic patients who are afraid to seek medical care. It's hoped the opening of a new medical clinic will change that.
