Las Vegas police are investigating a Thursday night machete fight and shooting that left three people injured in east Las Vegas.

Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Peter Kisfalvi said the fight and shooting were called in just before 10:30 p.m. Thursday as separate events in the parking lot of a 7-Eleven, 4151 Boulder Highway, near Lamb Boulevard.

An altercation led to the machete fight, and then a few minutes later shots were fired. Kisfalvi said one person suffered a stab wound to the leg, and two others suffered gunshot wounds to the leg.

Kisfalvi said detectives are trying to determine what started the fight.
