During the robbery, the victim was shot once. He was transported to the hospital in stable condition.

The suspect remains on the loose.

People who live in the area say this is something they are seeing more and more of. 

"Everyday there's something new that's happening," Kristy Jacobs said.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Enterprise Command Center, located at Rainbow Boulevard and Windmill Lane, receives more calls than any other center in the department's jurisdiction.
The police department is now working on creating a new command center and hiring more officers. There is no official date for an opening, but officers are hoping it will be sometime this year.
