One person was shot dead and four others injured on Thanksgiving after police in Henderson, Nevada say a man and woman fired at people while driving in the city.
“It is believed that the suspects were driving around the city randomly shooting at citizens with no apparent motive,” Henderson police said in a news release.
Henderson police officers responding to the Thursday shooting at the 800 block of East Lake Mead Parkway found a 22-year-old man who had died from an apparent gunshot wound, a 23-year-old injured woman, a 18-year-old injured man, a 53-year-old injured man, and a 41-year-old injured man, all suffering from apparent gunshot wounds, according to a news release.
The four injured victims were taken to a local hospital and are expected to survive. The identity of the deceased man will be released by the coroner’s office after notifying next of kin.
The suspects, a man believed to be in his 20s or 30s and a woman in her 20s, were later arrested and taken into custody for unrelated charges by the Arizona Department of Public Safety. A USA TODAY request for more information wasn’t immediately returned.
The investigation, which is still active, marks the thirteenth homicide case for the city this year.
