LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas Metro Police are investigating a deadly shooting at a laundromat in the central valley.
The shooting occurred at 8:15 p.m. Monday at the 24 Hour Laundromat at S. Maryland Parkway and Dumont Boulevard, across the street from the Boulevard Mall, according to Metro Lt. Greg Phenis.
Callers to 911 reported multiple shots fired inside the laundromat. Arriving officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound, Phenis said. The victim was rushed to the hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police said the gunman fled the scene. Detectives said they are looking for two men, but did not immediately release a detailed description of the shooter or say what led to the deadly gunfire.
One man who was shopping nearby said violence is becoming too common.
“We heard about six to seven shots. The first ones we just looked around real quick, we saw a bunch of people jumping inside the laundromat,” recalled Daniel Depaz. “Sadly, this is a normal thing now here. Maryland Parkway in this area especially. Lately, it seems to be more and more.”
If you have information that could lead to an arrest, you are urged to call Metro Police or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
