LAS VEGAS (KLAS)– The Las Vegas woman killed in a shooting at a house party over the weekend has been identified as 22-year-old Graciela Gomez.

Metro police responded to a report of a shooting at around 12:52 a.m Sunday, at a residence located in the 200 block of Beesley Drive in East Las Vegas.

Police say Gomez was shot multiple times and died at the scene.

Neighbor Maria Alo recalls what she saw Saturday night.

“I saw everyone running out afterward and then we see one of the girls who was hurt or shot, they were trying to give her CPR, but saying that she may not make it,” said Alo.

“There have been times that they have had over 500 people at the house,” added Alo. “Most of them teenagers.”

Two other victims transported themselves to the University Medical Center with non-life-threatening gunshot wounds.

Police said a preliminary investigation indicates that five unidentified males were refused entry to a party at the house. Shortly after, the suspects drove past the residence and fired several rounds striking the victims.
