A quarrel in an apartment complex courtyard on Sunday morning escalated to gunfire that killed a man and wounded a woman, Las Vegas police said.
Gunshot detection technology called ShotSpotter alerted police about 11:20 a.m. to the 900 block of E. Twain Avenue, south of UNLV, Lt. Jason Johansson said.
Officers arrived to find a gravely wounded man, who was shot multiple times, and a woman who had an injury to her lower leg, Johansson said.
The 46-year-old man died at the scene, and the woman was expected to recover at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, Johansson said.
Detectives learned that there was a discussion in the courtyard before a person pulled out a gun and opened fire, said Johansson, adding that the suspect had not been identified.
Johansson said investigators would remain at the scene for several hours.
Additional details were not immediately available. The Clark County coroner’s office is expected to release the dead man’s name at a later time.
