Nye Co. investigating shooting into woman's car

LAS VEGAS - The Nye County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that resulted in a bullet going through the back window of a woman's car as she dropped off her child at a bus stop.

The shooting happened Wednesday morning in Pahrump.

According to the sheriff's office, after the man fired the shot, he ran to a nearby home, broke into the residence, ran out the back door and was picked up by a man in a SUV.

Deputies were able to locate the SUV driver, but that driver said he didn't know the suspect. He had just given him a ride because he requested one.

The shooting suspect, who has not been found, is identified as a black man with a tattoo, possibly a bird or butterfly, on his face.

Anyone with information is asked to call (775) 751-7000.
