An argument outside an east valley Wal-Mart led to a shooting in the wee hours Thursday, according to Las Vegas police.
At 12:56 a.m., Metro was called to the 5100 block of Boulder Highway, spokesman Larry Hadfield said. Two men were arguing in the Wal-Mart parking lot when one of them walked away and got in a white SUV.
Figuring the argument was over, police said, the second man turned around and started walking away.
But a third man exited the SUV from the passenger’s side, Hadfield said, ran at the man walking away and shot him in the back.
The wounded man was taken to Sunrise Hospital, Hadfield said. Police did not provide his condition but said it was stable.
No additional information was available, and no arrests had been made as of Thursday afternoon, Hadfield said.
The investigation is ongoing, Hadfield said.
