Man shot, killed at northwest home; Metro ramps up efforts to stop violence

LAS VEGAS - A man was shot and killed in a northwest valley neighborhood Wednesday, Metro Police said.

The incident happened just before 12:00 p.m. in the area of El Capitan Way and Iron Mountain Road. 

According to officers, the man was shot by his ex-girlfriend as he entered her home, but at this time, it's unclear if her action was self defense.

However, police said the woman called 911 and reported that she was being attacked inside of her home.  Metro said it's unclear why the man was at the home.

The deadly shooting unfolded during a time when the captain of Metro's Northwest Area Command ramps up efforts to put a stop to the violence in the community
