LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) – A man is in the hospital this morning and a police officer is placed on paid administrative leave after a shooting because of a domestic violence situation, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

At 10:22 p.m. Sunday, the LVMPD Dispatch Center received a call from a woman who said her ex-boyfriend had physically battered her and had damaged her vehicle.

Officers found the woman inside of her vehicle in the parking lot of the closed Hollywood Park, 1600 S. Hollywood Blvd. The ex-boyfriend also was located, sitting in the passenger seat of the vehicle.
