LAS VEGAS (KSNV – 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.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
