Man is shot, killed in eastern Las Vegas Valley

A man was shot and killed in the eastern valley Monday night, according to Metro Police.

Officers were called to the 400 block of Page Street — near East Stewart Avenue and North Lamb Boulevard — about 6:15 p.m. after receiving multiple reports of gunfire in the neighborhood.

As officers fanned around the area, they came across a man's body about a block away. The body was on a sidewalk on the 4600 block of Miratan Street, said Lt. Dan Zehnder.

Officers also located a second man with gunshot wounds a few blocks north near Bonanza Road and Page Street. The man — whose condition is unknown — was transported to University Medical Center's Trauma Unit, Zehnder said.

Police do not know how many people were involved in the altercation or where it started, Zehnder said. The scene is still under investigation.
