Two men were shot, one fatally, during a verbal dispute Friday at a northeast Las Vegas apartment complex.

Around 7:30 p.m., police responded to the Agave Ridge apartment homes, 4521 E. Bonanza Road, east of North Lamb Boulevard. People called 911 saying two people had been shot, according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Jason Johansson.

A man in his 20s and a man in his 30s were found shot and taken to University Medical Center. The older man died at the hospital. Johansson said the other man was in stable condition at the hospital.

He said the men were shot by another man who pulled out a gun during a verbal altercation. Johansson said police believe the three men knew each other.

The shooter had not been arrested as of late Friday and was last seen leaving the scene in a dark-colored sedan.

Johansson said traffic was not affected as only a section of the apartment complex was closed for the investigation.

No further information was available.
