LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities say drugs and gang activity may have led to two shootings in Las Vegas that left one man dead and another injured.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Lt. Dan McGrath says the first shooting was reported about 8:40 p.m. Sunday.
McGrath says a man was shot after an altercation that may have been narcotics-related. He was taken to a hospital, but died in surgery about 11:15 p.m.
McGrath says Police heard more gunfire at about 10:40 p.m. They found another man suffering at least one gunshot wound, just one street over from the earlier shooting.
McGrath says the second victim is expected to survive.
McGrath says the shootings appear to be related. He says the second shooting may have been in retaliation to the first.
