On Tuesday, there was a shooting incident in the northeast valley of Las Vegas. According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, one person was killed and another was hurt in the incident.

Joshua Hernandez has been identified as the incident’s victim, who has been officially pronounced dead.

Joshua Hernandez: Who was he?

Twenty years old was Joshua Hernandez. The Clark County Coroner’s Office identified the victim’s body.

He suffered a gunshot wound to the head that caused his death, which the police have labeled as a homicide. On August 8, just before 11:30 p.m., a shooting occurred in the 5200 block of Birdstone Court, close to Owens Avenue and Nellis Boulevard. According to police authorities, when the officers arrived, they discovered two men who had been shot.

Hernandez was taken immediately to UMC, where he later passed away on August 9 at around 1:30 a.m., according to the coroner’s office. The second man, on the other hand, was taken to the hospital, and fortunately, the police said that his injuries were not life-threatening.

After the incident, the case was eventually turned over to homicide detectives so they could continue their inquiry. The investigation has already been sent to the Clark County District Attorney’s Office for consideration, according to reports, and it is thought to be a case of self-defense.

After a man was allegedly shot by Wilson County deputies at a residence on Linwood Road, another incident was reported. According to a statement from the sheriff’s office, the man was ordered to put down the gun he was holding, but he refused.

Authorities were contacted shortly after 6 o’clock to check on a home in the 3500 block of Linwood Road. Deputies discovered an armed man when they got to the call’s location. Bullets were fired when the man refused to put down his weapon as ordered by deputies.
