A Henderson police officer and dog were unharmed after someone opened fire on a K9 vehicle on the freeway Wednesday night, according to a release from Las Vegas police.
The officer said that he noticed a car moving recklessly behind him as he drove southbound on U.S. Highway 95 near Flamingo Road. The car began to pass him and he said he heard seven to 10 gunshots come from it, but he was unable to follow it off the freeway. None of the shots hit the officer’s car.
He described the car as a light-colored Lexus sedan with California plates, and reported a partial plate number beginning in 4 and ending in 26.
The shooting is under investigation.
Anyone with information on the car or driver or who may have witnessed the shooting can call Metro’s southeast patrol investigations section at 702-828-4063, or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
