Updated October 23, 2018 - 5:16 am

Las Vegas homicide detectives are investigating after a man was shot early Tuesday morning at a central valley apartment complex.

Police responded about 12:30 a.m. to an “unknown trouble” call at the Desert Garden condominiums, 1720 W. Bonanza Road, where they found a man in his mid-30s suffering a gunshot wound, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Ray Spencer said.

The first officer at the scene gave the man emergency medical aid until the fire department and medical personnel could arrive.

The man was taken to University Medical Center in critical condition, but homicide detectives were called in to investigate due to the extent of the man’s injuries.

Spencer said the man was at a party at one of the condos when an altercation broke out, but no one could describe the shooter. Witnesses told police they saw two other men flee the scene after the shooting.

Anyone with information on the shooting can contact Metro’s homicide section at 702-828-3521 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 to remain anonymous.
