Police seek help in identifying two from shooting

Las Vegas police are asking for the public’s help in identifying two people believed to have information about a November shooting in downtown Las Vegas.

About 7:45 p.m. on Nov. 5 a vehicle described as a white Nissan Maxima with a sunroof drove up to three people who were walking in the 2000 block of Stewart Avenue, near North 21st Street, according to a Metro press release.

Someone in the vehicle shouted something and then shots were fired from the passenger side, the release said. One of the victims suffered a non-life-threatening gunshot wound to his foot. The vehicle left at a high rate of speed, police said.

Detectives are asking for the public’s assistance in identifying two males shown in security photos from a convenience store in the area who police believe got into the suspect vehicle before the shooting.

Surveillance photos show a young man police believe could be teenage or in his early 20s with a heavy build and shaved hair. He was last seen wearing a blue shirt and appears to have tattoos on his right forearm.

The other young man is described as in his teens to early 20s with a thin build and short hair. He was last seen wearing a white shirt and black pants.
