Intruder Shot To Death In Home Invasion

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police continue to investigate a suspected home invasion that has left one man dead.

The shooting happened Saturday afternoon at an apartment house on Boulder Highway near East Desert Inn Road.

Metro Police Lt. Ray Steiber says four male suspects entered an apartment while a resident was inside. Some of the suspects and the resident had handguns and a gun battle ensued that left a suspect dead.

Steiber tells the Las Vegas Sun that the resident was uninjured. No names were released.

He says the resident might know the suspects.

The three remaining suspects are at large and one might have a gunshot wound. They are described as white males, ranging in age from 30 to 50 and ranging in height from 5-feet-8 inches to 6-feet tall.
