LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A person died at the hospital after three people were found shot in the parking lot of a hookah lounge in the west end of Las Vegas on Sunday.

Las Vegas Metro police said at about 4 a.m., three people were found suffering from apparent gunshot wounds in a parking lot at 5150 Spring Mountain Rd., between Lindell Road and South Decatur Boulevard.

All three victims were taken to University Medical Center Trauma. One of the victims was pronounced dead shortly after arriving at the hospital. A second victim was listed in critical condition and the third person sustained non-life-threatening injuries.

According to Metro, an investigation showed people were exiting a lounge within the complex at its normal closing time. People were in the parking lot when numerous shots were fired, wounding three people, police said.

There were no arrests made immediately following the shooting.

People who work in the area said the victims were leaving the Cazino Hookah Lounge.

"I think it's shocking in this neighborhood because it's a working-class neighborhood. It's a busy neighborhood. Everyone comes to eat and basically back to work," said Connie Lee, who works at restaurant in the area. She said she feels safe at work but hopes police find out who is responsible for the shooting.

The Clark County Coroner's Office was expected to identify the man killed in the shooting.

The investigation into this incident remains ongoing. Anyone with any information concerning this crime is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
