Double shooting leaves one dead near Jones and Robindale

By Cindy Harb. CREATED Mar 27, 2014

Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police were called to the scene of a double shooting that left one dead Thursday night near Jones Boulevard and Robindale Road.

Police responded after a gunshot victim walked into a convenience store and asked the clerk to call 911 because he had been shot.

Shortly after, police dispatchers received a separate call, claiming there were shots fired in the same parking lot.

When officials arrived on scene, they located a male in the back seat of a car, with a gunshot wound to the head. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

The other victim was transported to University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries.

The preliminary investigation indicated the two male victims had arrived together. A third man, who had arrived separately got into the vehicle where the victims attempted to rob him.

The suspect in turn shot both victims and fled the scene.

The suspect remains outstanding.

Anyone with information on this case is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
