Las Vegas police search for gunman in Strip double shooting

Updated May 21, 2023 - 3:58 pm

Two men were shot and injured near the Strip and Spring Mountain Road on Saturday night, and police are looking for the shooter.

The Metropolitan Police Department on Sunday morning posted photos of the man they say they’re looking for on Twitter.

Officers responded to reports of the shootings at 9:52 p.m. Saturday night. One of the victims was taken to University Medical Center while the other made his own way to a hospital, police said.

Detectives determined there had been an argument that led to one man pulling out a handgun and shooting the two other men, police said.

The photos show the man wearing white sneakers, black shorts and what police described as a teal shirt.

One of the photos appears to show the man running west on the north side of Spring Mountain Road near the bus stop in front of the Neiman Marcus store at the Fashion Show mall.
