A man was shot multiple times at an apartment complex in the northeast Las Vegas Valley early Wednesday morning.
The shooting took place about 3:20 a.m. at Estates at Westernaire, 3975 N. Nellis Blvd., Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon said.
The wounded man was being treated at a local hospital as of 4:45 a.m. He was in stable condition and is expected to survive, Metro officer Larry Hadfield said.
Police said a woman was asleep with a man when she woke up to her ex-boyfriend punching her. The sleeping man woke up, grabbed a handgun and shot the ex-boyfriend two or three times.
The shooter left before police arrived.
No arrests have been made, Hadfield said.
