LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – Las Vegas Metropolitan police said a possible pipe bomb explosion was reported in a residential area in the west valley.

A male victim was found with significant injuries to his upper body and face.
8 News Now spoke to a man who said he heard the explosion and his entire home shook.
“I lived here 25 years, it’s the safest little pocket neighborhood. I’ve never heard anything like that, and it was loud,” Lance Allen told 8 News Now. “I’ve been to Korea and Vietnam and I know what an explosion sounds like and it was an explosion.”
