Las Vegas police seek suspect in shooting of teen girl

Las Vegas police are searching for a man suspected of shooting a 14-year-old girl, according to a statement Tuesday.

A warrant was issued Jan. 19 for Gregory Williams on two counts of attempted murder and one charge each of battery with a deadly weapon resulting in substantial bodily harm and child abuse with a deadly weapon resulting in substantial bodily harm.

Williams was in a fight with another man on Dec. 29 near Palos Verdes Street and Kolson Circle when he opened fire, according to a statement from the Metropolitan Police Department.
