Gunshots rang out in two different parts of the Las Vegas Valley early Saturday morning.

Around 1:30 a.m. an innocent bystander was struck by a bullet near Decatur Boulevard and Sunset Road. Officials say two people got into an argument. As the fight escalated, one of them pulled out a gun and fired, striking a woman in the leg.

The woman was taken to the hospital in serious condition. Police are still searching for the suspects in this case.

About one hour later, reports came in of shots fired at a gas station near Tropicana Avenue and Koval Lane. Details about the shooting are limited, as police are still investigating the case.
