According to a statement from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, officers responded to the 4100 block of Silver Dollar Avenue, near Pennwood Avenue and Arville Street, to investigate reports of a shooting.  

Arriving officers located a small sedan with three victims suffering from gunshot wounds.  The driver and front passenger were pronounced deceased on scene and the other victim was transported to UMC Trauma in critical condition with a gunshot wound to the head.

The investigation initiated by the LVMPD Homicide Section says the three victims were inside of the vehicle with the suspect and at some point, all three victims were shot while inside of the vehicle.  

Evidence at the scene indicates the vehicle was in motion after the shooting and impacted a utility pole causing it to stop. A suspect, described as a black male adult with a stock build and short, was seen fleeing the area on foot.

The identity of the victims, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.  As of this release, the suspect has not been identified.
