View Comments

LAS VEGAS (AP) — One person is dead, another is wounded and a gunman in a Dodge vehicle is sought after a shooting outside a food distribution warehouse in a southern Nevada industrial area.

North Las Vegas police Officer Chrissie Coon says one man died after the shooting a little before 5:30 a.m. at Farm Fresh Foods on Civic Center Drive just east of Interstate 15.

Another man was taken to University Medical Center in Las Vegas with injuries that were described as life-threatening. A third man escaped injury.

Coon wouldn’t say what prompted the shooting or if anything was taken after the gunman confronted the three men in the parking lot.

Coon says a surveillance image shows a getaway car described as a light-colored Dodge Charger or Challenger with a dark racing stripe.
