Las Vegas police are investigating a central Las Vegas shooting early Friday morning after a man showed up at a hospital with two gunshot wounds to the back.
Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Peter Kisfalvi said University Medical Center personnel notified police about 12:50 a.m. after the man was brought in. He is expected to survive.
The circumstances surrounding the shooting are still unclear. Kisfalvi said the shooting might have been the result of a street robbery.
About 2 a.m. Friday officers blocked off a portion of Lorenzi Street, near Alta Drive and Rainbow Boulevard, as investigators photographed the sidewalk outside an apartment complex.
