LAS VEGAS (KXNT) – A man was behind bars after allegedly shooting and killing one man and wounding another before reporting the gunfire as a self-defense shooting Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.

Officers responding to the call of a self-defense shooting found the two victims suffering from gunshot wounds outside an apartment building on the 4300 block of North Lamont Street just after 12:30 p.m. Wednesday, a Las Vegas Metro Police statement reported.

One man was pronounced dead a short time later at University Medical Center. The other victim was being treated for non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

Investigators said evidence found at the scene wasn’t consistent with the original claim of self-defense, prompting officers to arrest the shooter, identified as Keon Miller.

Miller, 29, was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on one court of murder.
