Questions surround shooting, possible home invasion

Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police are looking for another person in connection with a shooting and possible home invasion that happened at a neighborhood near Bermuda Road and Starr Avenue just before noon Monday. According to police, one person has been detained but no one has been arrested in connection with the shooting.One person was shot and taken to University Medical Center in an unknown condition. Police have not talked to that person, because he is not able to speak.

Neighbors told 8 News NOW that they rushed out of their homes Monday afternoon when they heard gun shots and yelling.

"I thought it was an explosion,” resident Buddy Pieters said. "I saw this guy standing right over there and hollering at the house and said, 'Get out!' He said something to somebody. I don't know who it is."

Seconds later, a person suffering from four gunshot wounds emerged from the home on Ethan Brook Street.

Officers say there was blood on the ground and on neighbors' doors. There is still uncertainty of who the true victim of the crime was, according to police.

"Our victim appeared to have run from the scene with the gunshot wound and was going door to door, looking for someone to help him until he finally got someone to call police for him,” Metro Lt. David Valenta said. "There are still multiple stories. They are still investigating. They still have several parties to talk to. No one has been deemed a suspect, and no suspect is in custody."

Police detained one person, calling him a person of interest. K-9 units tried to track another person police want to talk to, but that person is still on the loose.

"It is a very good neighborhood. I've been here for seven years, but this is the first time it is happened to me,” Pieters added.

Neighbors said this is unusual in their gated community, and they will be watching a lot closer from now on.
