Police say a boy shot in the central Las Vegas Valley on Saturday was killed during a drug deal.
Las Vegas police said they believe shots were fired during a “narcotics-related transaction” near Casada Way and Torrey Pines, and that the boy fled through an apartment complex on the 6400 block of Casada Way after he was shot.
They said he was shot a second time in an alley toward the back of the complex, where police found him around 12:30 p.m. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Clark County coroner’s office has not identified the boy.
