Las Vegas police say a man was transported to the hospital after being shot by a female acquaintance's boyfriend.

Officers say the woman drove the injured man to a hospital around 2 a.m. June 11 after her boyfriend shot him in the knee at a home in the 9100 block of McGinnis Avenue, near Warm Springs and Fort Apache roads.

The boyfriend reportedly knocked on the woman's front door, prompting the man to hide in an upstairs bathroom. The boyfriend then gained entrance to the home, kicked down the bathroom door and pointed a gun at the man's head.

The boyfriend then shot the man in the knee before fleeing the home.

Officers say the boyfriend is still at large and the investigation is ongoing.
