LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - Homicide detectives are responding to a double homicide that took place Monday afternoon near the intersection of Glowing Ember Court and Daisy Petal Street. The shooting happened in a neighborhood near the US 95 and 215 interchange.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police found one man dead outside a home in the northwest valley and another dead inside.

It was just before 4:30 Monday afternoon when 911 calls came into metro reporting gunfire. When they arrived a man was lying dead in front of the home. The door was ajar and when police entered the home they found another man with fatal gunshot wounds.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office identified the victims as Isaiah Galindo, 18, and Jesse Galindo, 16. Both died from gunshot wounds and their deaths were ruled a homicide.

As Metro was investigating – a third man self transported himself to Centennial Hospital with gunshot wounds. He is expected to survive.

Police believe everyone involved knew each other and there were at least four people inside the home when some sort of fight broke out. They say there is no threat to the public.

“We don’t believe anybody related is outstanding no one is outstanding,” said Lt. Jason Johansson at the scene of the shooting.

Police do not yet have an answer to what exactly the people involved were fighting about that led to the shooting.

Police tell us they plan to be on scene to investigate what happened well into Monday night.

LVMPD is saying the area should be avoided at this time.

LVMPD said the case is being sent to the Clark County District Attorney’s Office for review. No one was arrested.

Police ask anyone with information to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555. You can remain anonymous.
