A teen was shot at during an armed robbery Tuesday night in northwest Las Vegas, police say.
The male was walking southbound on the 3500 block of Hualapai Way, near Cheyenne Avenue, at 10:56 p.m. when two males approached him, Lt. David Gordon said. The two demanded the young man’s phone, but he refused.
“One of the suspects pointed a gun toward the ground and fired one shot,” Gordon said.
The victim was not hit. The suspects then wrestled the phone away and fled. Police arrived moments later and arrested one of the assailants.
Police set up a perimeter and located the second suspect with the help of a K-9 unit. The suspect was hiding in the backyard of a residence on the 3700 block of Wilbur McGee Court.
Names of the suspects were not immediately released. The victim suffered minor injuries in the incident.
