Metro searches for 3 men in home invasion, dog shooting

Metro is looking for three armed home invasion robbers who confronted a man and shot a dog in a central valley home in mid-August.

The robbers on Aug. 16 entered a home near the intersection of Rainbow Boulevard and Tara Avenue, just north of Sahara Avenue, Metro said. Surveillance video shows a man jumping up from a couch when he sees an armed man. The dog appears to be barking when it’s shot in the paw by one of the perpetrators.

The trio is described by Metro as black. One was between 20 and 30 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches tall with a muscular build and short black hair. Another is between 18 and 25 years old, about 5 feet 10 inches tall, thin and has black braided hair. The third man sought is 20 to 30 years old, about 6 feet tall, heavyset with braided hair. He has a tattoo on the outside of his left bicep.

Anyone with information on the men can call Metro at 702-828-3591. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 and www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
