LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A 16-year-old boy and a 20 -year-old man were arrested by the Nye County Sheriff’s Office after a shooting that caused a high school and elementary school to be put on lockdown.

The shooting occurred Wednesday near 610 East San Lorenzo around 12:50 p.m. When deputies responded to the scene, they found a 40-year-old man who had been shot multiple times in front of his home, NCSO said.

The victim was taken to University Medical Center where he is being treated for life-threatening injuries.

NCSO said that the suspect was identified as a 16-year-old boy who left the scene prior to the deputies arrival. During a search of the valley, the suspect was found with another man, identified as Desmen Sims, 20, near Bell Vista Road and Gay Street.

The suspect and Sims were taken into custody.

Both the 16-year-old suspect, and Sims were booked into the Nye County Detention Center on charges of attempted murder, and battery with substantial bodily harm. Sims will also be booked on a charge of accessory to a felony crime.

Due to his age, the juvenile suspect’s photo and identity will not be released, NCSO said.

As a precaution, JG Johnson Elementary School and Pahrump Valley High School were placed on a soft lockdown and a deputy was placed at both schools.
