Woman shot, wounded in east Las Vegas Valley

A woman was hospitalized Thursday morning after she was shot in the east valley, Las Vegas police said.

Police originally were called at about 7:30 a.m. to the 2700 block of Mossy Oaks Lane, near Sahara Avenue and Sloan Lane, for a domestic disturbance between a man and woman, Metropolitan Police Department spokesman Aden OcampoGomez said. The man had left the scene.

Police were called back just after 9:10 a.m. in response to a report that the man had returned and shot the woman. She was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center with at least one gunshot wound to the leg. The man fled the scene before police arrived.

Las Vegas High School and Mendoza, Wengert and Goldfarb elementary schools all went on “hard lockdowns” around 9:30 a.m. because of the shooting, Clark County School District officials said. All lockdowns were lifted at 10:20 a.m.
