North Las Vegas Police Investigate Triple Shooting
Crime

NORTH LAS VEGAS -- North Las Vegas Police say three people were wounded in a running gun battle in a neighborhood near Ann Road and Decatur Boulevard.

Sgt. Tim Bedwell says one of the wounded was taken to University Medical Center in Las Vegas with a critical injury after the 2 a.m. Thursday shooting.

Two others showed up at area hospitals with less serious gunshot wounds. Bedwell says investigators don't know yet what sparked the gunfire.

Police say the gun battle broke out between rival gangs at a party in a vacant house. 

"What we're seeing is a resurgence from these late teens early 20's hybrid gangsters who are dangerous because they have guns, shoot indiscriminately, and they don't represent a particular neighborhood," said Sgt. Bedwell.
