Police: Child, 3 others hurt in Vegas drive-by shooting

Posted: Updated:

Las Vegas Metro police are seeking the suspects in a drive-by shooting that injured four people, including an 11-year-old child.

According to Metro police, officers were called to a home on Bartlett Avenue near Lexington Street at 10:20 p.m. on Sept. 7 regarding shots fired.

There, police found four people who sustained gunshot wounds. Police said those victims were rushed to University Medical Center with critical injuries.

Citing an initial investigation, police said the victims were walking to the front door of the residence when a newer model, black four-door sedan with dark-tinted windows drove by. A suspect opened fire at the residence.

Police said the vehicle was last seen driving east on Bartlett Avenue and south onto Lexington Street.

Next-door neighbor Demetrus Virgio said he is still shaken up by the shooting.

"With me having kids, you don't want that in the neighborhood at all, not for my kids, not for me or anybody. My mother lives across the street, so it was a real shakeup," he said.

Neighbor Lee Edwards heard shots ring out on the night of the drive-by.

"I said that sounded like a shot. Then I heard pow, pow, pow, and I said, ‘Oh, [expletive],' and I went down," he said.

Police also believe the shooting may be gang-related.

"People that did see something are not going to say anything because that's how it goes," said Virgio.

Police urged anyone with information on the incident to contact the Gang Crimes Bureau at 702-828-3309 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
