About a dozen people had to be evacuated early Monday morning after a suspicious device was found.

This is one of the people who got evacuated last night while the bomb squad was working. He's heading to work and barely got any sleep.

The incident started as a shooting near Las Vegas Boulevard and Serene Avenue. A man was hit. While police were investigating, officers found out the man who had been shot had also been threatening to blow up the Paradise Spa Apartments. Police found a suspicious device near where the shooting happened, but it was eventually rendered safe.

The man was taken to the hospital.

"Yes I was scared because it's the first time I heard someone shouting help," said Bernard Creencia, who heard gunfire. 

Police are looking for two people in connection to the shooting.
