LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Metro police on Thursday afternoon said they are looking for two men in connection with a robbery and shooting Saturday near Valley View Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road.

Police said at about 9:55 p.m., the victim was approached by two men, who may be white or Hispanic, who had been traveling in a light blue sedan.

The men exited the vehicle, pointed a gun at the victim and demanded property. The victim complied, handing over his or her wallet, but one of the men shot that victim in the face.

Police said that although the victim's wounds are serious, they are not life-threatening.

The shooter is described as between 26 and 30 years old and between 5'8" and 5'10" tall with a medium build. He has a crescent-shaped green tattoo on the front of his neck.

The other man is described as 5'8" tall and 150 pounds with a muscular build and black hair. He was wearing a plaid, black and grey, button-up shirt.

Anyone with information is urged to call Metro's Robbery Section at 702-828-3591 or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555. You may also leave information online at www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
