LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A suspect is on the loose as Henderson police work at the scene of a double shooting at a Wendy’s in the southeast valley near the Galleria at Sunset mall. The shooting happened just after 1 p.m. on Friday.
Police were not releasing any details at the scene, and they would not confirm whether Wendy’s employees were part of the shooting, but a witness who tried to intervene told 8NewsNow two of the people involved were wearing Wendy’s uniforms.
“It was just terrifying and my first thought really was to call the police so that someone could come out and help out with the situation and hearing, not just my husband but having my baby so close to something like that was horrible,” a witness tells 8 News Now.
Two people were shot, police said. Both were taken by a driver to an area hospital. The ages of the victims were not available.
The restaurant is at 1131 W. Sunset Road in Henderson, at Sunset and Marks Street. The area was blocked off by police for more than three hours.
Henderson police said this is an active investigation and no further information will be provided at this time.
