LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A 46-year-old woman was shot and killed by her boyfriend Thursday morning at a home in the southwest valley, according to Las Vegas Metro police.

LVMPD Lt. David Valenta said dispatch received a 911 call around 1:20 a.m. about a woman who had been shot in the 5800 block of Spectacular Bid Street, near Buffalo Drive and Russell Road.

A 6-year-old boy had walked to a neighbor’s house to tell them that his mother had been shot.

“It appears we had a 6-year-old child who went to the neighbor’s home and advised his mommy had been shot,” Valenta said.

When officers got to the home, the woman was found deceased with a gunshot wound. They later determined that she had been shot by her boyfriend, who fled the scene before police arrived.

Police are looking for the boyfriend as a person of interest. He was described as a 43-year-old man, who had relations with the victim, possibly seen leaving the scene on a road-style motorcycle with orange coloring.
