Las Vegas Metro Police say, two men broke into a home and tied up a man and woman who were inside. The man got loose, grabbed a gun, and started shooting at the suspects.
KVVU reports, a suspect was killed and another was injured and arrested after a home invasion in northwest Las Vegas, according to Las Vegas Metro police. Investigators said they believe a third suspect could be on the run.
Officers responded to the incident Monday night. A neighbor said he called police after hearing gunshots and screams.
One of the suspects was found dead inside the home and another suffered gunshot wounds to the lower back, police said. The second suspect, identified as 21-year-old Arnold Morales, was treated at hospital, before being booked on charges.
Morales is facing a variety of charges including attempted murder with use of a firearm, two counts of first degree kidnapping and assault with a deadly weapon.
"I would have shot him a couple of more times to make sure he was dead, absolutely yeah there's no reason to be that way there's no reason to steal or rob,” neighbor Tom Shiloh said.
Neighbor Lisa Warren said this was a quiet neighborhood, but the crime makes her wish she had more protection.
" I wish I still own a gun. I used to, I wish I still did,” she said.
The female victim of the home invasion was struck in the arm and was receiving treatment at University Medical Center.
