LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A shooting in the west Las Vegas valley left one person dead and three others injured, according to Metro police.
Around 2:45 Thursday, officers responded to an apartment complex in the 3900 block of South Jones Boulevard near Flamingo Road after a report of a shooting.
When officers arrived they found four victims, three of which were shot and one was stabbed. Three of the victims, a woman in her 30s, a man in his 30s, and a woman in her 40s, were taken to a local hospital. While at the hospital the woman in her 30s succumbed to her injuries and was pronounced dead.
The 14-year-old stab victim was treated at the scene. Police also said a 2-year-old was at the scene but was unharmed.
