Posted at 6:52 AM, Dec 16, 2015

Police have released images of three suspects in a shooting last month.

Around 8:40 p.m. Nov. 20, officers responded to the 900 block of North Pecos Road, near Washington Avenue, for a man who had been shot. The man was transported to UMC Trauma with non-life threatening injuries.

The investigation indicated the victim and his wife were in a parking lot when they were approached by three black men. One of the suspects pointed a firearm at the victim, at which point the victim pulled out his own firearm, police said. The suspect fired at the victim, striking him, and the victim fired multiple rounds toward the suspects.

The suspects then fled the area. This incident appears to be robbery motivated.

The suspects can be further described as men, in their teens to 30 years of age. Two of the suspects are described as having a thin build and one suspect is described as having a heavier build.

Anyone with knowledge as to the identity or whereabouts of these suspects is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
