Las Vegas Police are seeking help from the public in identifying three men who were involved in a shooting near the Strip on Friday.
Police received a report of a shooting on the 100 block of East Tropicana Avenue near Las Vegas Boulevard South around 11:30 am, the Metropolitan Police Department said in a press release. When the officers arrived, they found “evidence of a shooting,” but could not find any participants.
Investigators found that the shooting occurred when two men walking along Tropicana got into a “confrontation” with a man who was driving a Toyota Prius.
“At some point, the two suspects made a gun and shot at the vehicle,” said the police.
The Prius was last seen driving east on Tropicana, and the two pedestrians fled. No injuries have been reported, Metro said.
Detectives are looking for the two men and the driver of the Prius.
The two suspected shooters have both been described as 20 to 30 years old, Metro said. One wore a Philadelphia Phillies baseball hat, a red long-sleeved shirt, and blue jeans. The other wore a black vest, white sleeveless undershirt, black pants and red shoes.
The Prius had gray tape on the back of the car, Metro said.
Anyone with information about the shooting can contact Metro’s Investigation Department at 702-828-7826. Anonymous tips can be left at Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
