Overnight shooting near Washington and H Street leaves 2 dead

LAS VEGAS - Metro Police are investigating a double homicide near Washington Avenue and H Street.

Officers responded to reports of several people injured in a shooting at downtown Las Vegas Wednesday around 11 p.m.

When police arrived, they found a man and a woman shot to death inside a home.

Investigators believe that two male suspects were inside the home and started arguing about drugs with three people. It's believed the argument led to the shooting which also injured another man.

That male victim got away from the shooting and was found with gunshot wounds on both hands a few blocks away near McWilliams Avenue and H Street.

Investigators say the two suspects could possibly be gang members.
