ORIGINAL STORY
LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police say a preteen child called 911 around 9 p.m. on Thursday and told authorities their family member had been shot in a fight, possibly involving another family member.

Police say the child did not witness the shooting, only heard it. When crews arrived, police say a man -- believed to be in his late 40s -- was found with multiple gunshot wounds and pronounced dead on the scene.

Another man was brought into custody without incident. It is unknown at this time what led to the shooting.

Officials believe this was a domestic dispute. They say there is a woman involved who has a connection to both the deceased and the man in custody, though they are unsure exactly what the connection is at this stage in the investigation.

Police also say there are resources out there and urge the public to call SafeNest, 2-1-1, or seek counseling to try and prevent escalated disputes.
