Metro seeks 4 people in connection with May shooting

Las Vegas police are asking for the public’s help in finding three men and one woman in connection with a May shooting in a southeast valley parking lot.

Metro officers were called about 1 a.m. May 28 to a Walmart parking lot in the 5100 block of Boulder Highway, south of Flamingo Road, where they found a man with a gunshot wound, police wrote in a release Tuesday.

The man was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center where he was treated for his injuries, the release said.

Preliminary investigation indicated that two people were approached in a parking lot by a white SUV, occupied by four people. The pedestrians and the people in the SUV argued and a man got out of the SUV and fired a handgun, striking one of the pedestrians.

The shooter got back in the SUV and the vehicle fled, the release said.

Police are looking for a large, white older model SUV with tinted windows, a lift kit and large, off-road style tires.

The first man police are looking for in connection with the shooting was described as in his 20s with a thin build and dark hair. The second man was in his 20s and wore a red shirt at the time of the shooting, the release said. The third man was described as in his 20s with long hair. The fourth occupant of the SUV was a woman in her 20s who was wearing a white tank top and black shorts when the shooting happened, police said.

The release did not specify what role each person may have played in the shooting.

Anyone with information about the shooting or whereabouts of the people or vehicle involved in the shooting should call Metro’s violent crimes section at 702-828-5634 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or visit www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
