9:23 A.M.
Police are responding to an incident near Rainbow Boulevard and Desert Inn Road. Rainbow is closed in both directions. Avoid the area. 13 Action News has a crew on the scene, check back for updates.

6 A.M.
North Las Vegas police say a man was shot near Lake Mead and Las Vegas boulevards after he stabbed a 7-Eleven clerk with a sharp object. Police say the man tried to run from the clerk after stabbing him, heading towards a nearby bus stop, but the injured clerk chased the man down and shot him. Officers say the two got into a fight because the man refused to leave the 7-Eleven property. Both men were transported to UMC Trauma with non-life-threatening injuries. Police are still investigating.

The suspect was later identified as 27-year-old Anthony Wright, who was employed by 7-Eleven. Wright was booked on charges of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, possession of a firearm by a prohibited person, possession of stolen property (gun), and destroying/concealing evidence at Las Vegas City Jail.

Henderson police said a man was found deceased on a sidewalk near Warm Springs Road and North Arroyo Grande Boulevard around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. No word on how the person died, and it is unclear at this time if officers are investigating this as suspicious.

In a separate incident, Las Vegas police say the intersection at Las Vegas Boulevard and Lamb Boulevard is back open following a serious crash around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday. Several people were transported to the hospital but are expected to survive. The intersection was closed for several hours while they investigated the scene.
