Teen struck by bullet from outside east valley house

A teen was struck by what may have been “celebratory gunfire” just after midnight Friday and taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center with non-life-threatening injuries, according to Las Vegas police.

The bullet came from outside the boy’s east valley home, on the 2000 block of Raspberry Hill Road, which is just southeast of Charleston and Nellis boulevards, police said.

Officers responded to the call at 12:04 a.m. and were still on the scene trying to determine from where the round was fired as of about 1:30 a.m.

No one else was injured, Metro spokeswoman Officer Laura Meltzer said.
