Las Vegas Police are investigating a Christmas Day shooting in the central Las Vegas Valley in which a man was critically injured.
Ken Nogle said police were called to the 500 block on East Sahara Avenue near Paradise Road at 11:05 am for a report of gunfire. Witnesses said the shooting took place at a liquor store and went to Van Patten Street.
“Citizens reported that a grown man was shot dead outside a company,” said Nogle.
Police had taped an area of nearly two blocks that spanned the parking lot of the East Sahara Plaza shopping complex, where the liquor store was located, and the adjacent Speedee Mart.
Crime scene analysts have also been spotted taking photos and collecting evidence.
Officers came and found a man who had “at least one gunshot wound”.
“The man was rushed to a nearby hospital with serious injuries,” Nogle said. “He lives at this time.”
A suspect was taken into custody around 12:45 p.m., Nogle said.
