LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A 48-year-old man was found dead Tuesday night, according to North Las Vegas Police. It happened around 7 p.m. in the 4900 block of Harold Street near E. Lone Mountain and Losee roads.
According to officers, a 12-year-old boy was in the shower in the home, when all of a sudden he heard a gunshot ring out. When police arrived at the scene, they found the man suffering from a gunshot wound near the doorway of the garage.
