Botched Suicide Attempt in NLV
Police say a man is hospitalized in critical condition after shooting himself following a two-vehicle crash in North Las Vegas. Police Sgt. Tim Bedwell says alcohol appears to have been a factor in the crash and the shooting about 7 a.m. Monday near Losee (LOW-see) Road and the northern 215 Las Vegas Beltway. Bedwell tells the Las Vegas Review-Journal that two people in the vehicle that was struck escaped serious injury. The wounded man’s identity wasn’t immediately made public. Bedwell says the man was alone in his vehicle when he passed a stop signal and hit the other vehicle. Investigators think the driver was headed to the desert north of the Beltway to commit suicide.
