A man was expected to survive after he was wounded in a drive-by shooting Christmas Eve morning while walking from his northeast Las Vegas home to a nearby store.
Shortly after 7 a.m., a parent called 911 to report that their son had been shot while walking in the area of Lincoln Road and East Carey Avenue, near North Lamb Boulevard, according to Las Vegas Lt. David Gordon.
The man said that while walking to the store, a beige sedan drove past and fired at least three rounds before speeding away, Gordon said. When the man realized he had been shot, he ran back to his family’s home on the 4000 block of Carey Avenue.
The man was taken to a local hospital and underwent surgery, Gordon said.
The shooter or shooters remained at-large Tuesday morning. Anyone with information may contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
