LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
A man was shot in the leg after a police officer responded to a domestic spat late Sunday night, according to Las Vegas Metro police.
According to authorities, a woman called police at about 10:22 p.m. Sunday, requesting help for an ongoing domestic violence situation in the area of Hollywood Boulevard, between Charleston Boulevard and Sahara Avenue.

The suspect was taken to University Medical Center with non-life threatening injuries. He was listed in stable condition.
