A woman wounded in a shooting Tuesday afternoon in downtown Las Vegas is expected to survive, police said.
The shooting happened before 4:45 p.m. at Main Street and Bonneville Avenue. It was not clear how many shots were fired, but a woman was hospitalized at University Medical Center after a bullet grazed her head, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Grant Rogers said.
Details leading up to the shooting were not immediately available.
No suspects were in custody as of 5 p.m., Metro spokesman Larry Hadfield said.
Downtown resident Roger Molett said he was crossing First Street on Clark Avenue, about a block from the scene, when he heard gunshots.
“It was just pop, pop, pop, pop,” he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. At least five rounds were shot, he said.
Main Street was closed between Clark Avenue and Bonneville while officers investigated.
