Recent shootings in North Las Vegas neighborhoods have community members concerned.
As two incidents were fatal with a third injuring children.
Resident Jim Abernethy has called Southern Nevada home for more than 20 years. His strolls around the park now come with a bit of worry these days.
"I’m scared to death to ride up north by Centennial where all those shootings have taken place. I won't go there anymore and there are nice bike trails I wish I could go to,” Abernethy said.
In November, North Las Vegas has seen its share of senseless violence.
On the first day of the month, an innocent 11-year-old was killed by suspected gang members who police said targeted the wrong home near Deer Springs Way and Losee Road.
Tuesday, a 16-year-old boy was shot and killed at a convenience store near Centennial Avenue and Saturday's incident sent two children to the hospital.
Authorities urged anyone with more information on these recent shootings to contact North Las Vegas police at 702-633-9111.
