LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Police investigated a triple shooting that left a man dead and two women injured near a Jack in the Box drive-thru window in the northeast Las Vegas valley.
It occurred Thursday, Nov. 24, at 5:38 p.m. at 4385 N. Las Vegas Boulevard (near Craig Road).
Initially, police said they received calls from several people reporting a man had been shot.
When officers arrived they found a man described as an “adult teenager” on the ground behind the restaurant with gunshot wounds.
He was taken to UMC in critical condition and was later pronounced dead, police stated.
Two female victims described as “adult teenagers” were also shot and are said to have non-life-threatening injuries. One of the women was taken to the hospital and the other remained at the scene of the shooting.
The suspect and the male victim were both near the drive-thru window on foot when they were involved in an argument that quickly became physical, detectives stated.
The suspect then pulled out a gun and shot the victim multiple times, and then left the scene of the crime, Jason Johansson Homicide Lieutenant with Metropolitan police said.
The shooting is not believed to be a random incident and police said they believe the suspect and the victim may have known each other.
The suspect is described by police as a man wearing a “black hoodie and grey sweatpants.”
The Jack in the Box parking lot remained closed off to the public due to the investigation Thursday night. Police also stated that the building was hit by gunfire and there were employees inside the establishment at the time of the shooting, but that no one was injured.
No arrests have been made in the case and police ask the public to contact Crime Stoppers with any information regarding the crime at 702-385-5555.
