Medical examiners identified a man who police believe was shot by the person he tried to rob.
Las Vegas Metro police said they received a call of a shooting at 9:26 p.m. on August 5 in the 5000 block of Spencer Street, near Tropicana Avenue. Lt. Dan McGrath, of Metro, said the incident happened at the Newport Cove apartment complex.
In the incident, a man and a woman who reside at the complex were approached by multiple people trying to rob them, McGrath said. The male resident pulled out a gun and shot one of the robbers.
McGrath said the wounded robber was rushed to Sunrise Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.
Police did not disclose any other injuries in the incident.
I love a story with a happy ending. The sequel is that the other robbers get shot resisting arrest.
