LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A man is dead and another person is critically injured after a shooting on Thursday.
It happened at 11:14 p.m. (July 7), when officers from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department responded to a report of a man who had been shot on the 2300 block of Paseo Del Prado, northwest of West Sahara Avenue. Police found two men with gunshot wounds on the ground near a parking lot.
One victim, 23, was pronounced dead at the scene. The other, 24, was taken to UMC Trauma where his condition Friday was listed as critical.
