HENDERSON, NV (KXNT) – Henderson authorities are asking for the public’s help to piece together what led to the death of a man who called 911 to report being shot just before crashing his car into a light pole early Monday, police said.
Dispatchers received the call just before 4 a.m. Monday from a man who told officers he’d been shot, according to a Henderson police statement. While dispatchers spoke to the man, the driver crashed his vehicle into a light pole near Anthem and Bicentennial parkways. The victim was rushed to Saint Rose Siena Hospital, where he died from his injuries a short time later. The man’s name was not immediately released pending family notification.
Investigators believe the man had been at The Bar on the 11600 block of Bermuda Road until 3:45 a.m. He was driving a 2012 black four-door Ford Focus and was heading to Anthem Highlands possibly on Volunteer Boulevard, Executive Airport Drive or Anthem Parkway. Detectives hope someone can help place the vehicle’s movements between 3:45 and 4 a.m.
Anyone with information about the shooting was asked to contact the Henderson Police Department at 702-267-4911.
