Las Vegas police: Drive-by shooter was in dark-colored vehicle

Las Vegas police are looking for clues in the fatal drive-by shooting of a juvenile over the weekend.

The young man — described only as a male juvenile — died after someone in the dark-colored vehicle pulled up to a vehicle he was in and opened fire Sunday near the intersection of Sahara Avenue and Decatur Boulevard, police said. The dark-colored vehicle took off after shots were fired.

The juvenile who died was with four others waiting at a red light when the shooting happened, police said. That vehicle proceeded to the nearby 5200 block of Stampa Avenue where someone called police about 7:30 p.m.

When police arrived, they found the shot juvenile lying in a driveway. He was taken to University Medical Center where he died.

Metro Lt. Craig Klatt said Sunday that his agency thinks the vehicle was targeted. Multiple people were also in the dark-colored vehicle.
