Harbor Island Apartments

Police are unsure of the circumstances that led to the shooting deaths of two men and the wounding of a third Tuesday at a Las Vegas apartment complex.

Just after 8 p.m. at 370 E. Harmon Avenue, a man with a gunshot wound in his leg ran into the front office of the Harbor Island Apartments for help, Metro Police Lt. Mark Reddon said. The 24-year-old man said there were three men in his apartment, and at least one had a gun.

The man was taken to Sunrise Hospital with what were not thought to be life-threatening injuries, Reddon said. There were no other injuries.

Once police arrived, they went to the area of the man’s apartment and found two men dead, Reddon said.

Initial reports from various media outlets reported the attack as a robbery, which Reddon said was incorrect.

Police are in search of three male suspects, but did not provide further details.
