Posted: Updated:
LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Police say a man is in critical condition Friday morning after an overnight shooting on Boulder Highway and Tropicana Avenue.

Officers say a call came in at 3:09 a.m. reporting shots fired at the Sportsman Royal Manor Apartments at 5600 Boulder Hwy.

A Metro officer was already in the apartment complex on an unrelated call when he heard five to six shots fired, police said.

After heading in the direction of the gunshots, the officer says he was approached by a citizen who told him a man was shot.

The officer located the victim, who police say is a man in his early 30s who had suffered two to three gunshot wounds on the left side of his torso.

The wounded man was taken to Sunrise Hospital in critical condition.

Police say the shooting may have been the result of an attempted robbery and are still investigating the incident.

There is still no word on a possible suspect.
