LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) – One person is dead this morning and two are injured after a shooting in east Las Vegas.

According to Metro, dispatch was called just after 11 a.m. to an apartment complex in the 2600 block of Heritage Court, near East Sahara Avenue and South Mojave Road.

Police say two gunmen walked to an apartment and were invited in. They told the people inside that they were looking for somebody. When they were told that the individual was not there, they opened fire.

One man was killed; two women were wounded by the shootings, suffering serious injuries. One victim was transported to Sunrise Hospital; the other to UMC Trauma. Another woman in a different residence was injured, but it is unclear how she received her wounds.

Police say it is unclear if the incident was drug-related, but neighbors say the area is known for drugs.
