Baby killed in North Las Vegas shooting

Las Vegas Nevada - A baby was killed following a shooting in North Las Vegas on Saturday night.

A car was parked at an apartment complex on E. Deer Springs Way around 9:15 p.m. when the suspected shooter or shooters opened fire, according to Off. Aaron Patty of the North Las Vegas Police department.

Inside the car were two adults and three children ranging in age from one month to 4 years, said Off. Patty. 

The one-month-old boy in the car was stuck by a bullet along with a 22-year-old man, said Off. Patty. 

The 19-year-old female driver of the car attempted to rush the victims to the hospital, but ran a red light and crashed into another car at Craig Road and N. 5th Street, said Off. Patty. 

Medical responders rushed the one-month-old boy and 22-year-old man to UMC Trauma where the child succumbed to his injuries, said Off. Patty.

The man is still at UMC and is listed as stable. The female driver and two other children were not injured in the incident. 

Police do not believe this was a random act of violence. They suspect the shooter or shooters and the victim knew each other. 

Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at (702) 633-9111 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
