Off-duty officer, suspects wounded in shooting

An off-duty Metro Police officer and two suspects were wounded in a shooting late Wednesday. Police are still searching for two additional suspects. The officer’s injuries are said to be not life-threatening.

A Metro Police spokesman said the shooting occurred in a neighborhood near Decatur and Gowan, in northwest Las Vegas. Police did not confirm what led to the shooting or specifically how many people were shot.

Two of the suspects were located inside a car in downtown Las Vegas, near Fremont Street. Both had been shot, but police could not immediately update their conditions. Police have several roads and at least one parking garage closed in the downtown resort area.

Police are searching for at least two more suspects, though a spokesman could not provide a detailed description of either person.
