La Vegas police are trying to piece together what occurred before a man with multiple gunshot wounds was dropped off at Spring Valley Hospital Medical Center early Tuesday.

The injured man was dropped off at the hospital just before 4 a.m. with “several gunshot wounds to various parts of his body,” according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon.

The man was transported from there to University Medical Center for treatment and as of 9:30 a.m. remained in critical condition, said Metro spokeswoman Laura Meltzer.

Police also have not been able to determine where the man was shot but Meltzer said officers were investigating near Tropicana Avenue and Decatur Boulevard.

Metro’s homicide unit had not been requested to investigate the shooting as of 9:30 a.m., Meltzer added.
