Two people were arrested and a third person is being sought after a shooting that left a Las Vegas Metro police officer wounded Friday morning.
The shooting happened about 4 a.m. at a home in the 6700 block of Oveja Circle, near the intersection of Rainbow Boulevard and Alta Drive.
According to Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, Officer Jeremy Robertson and his partner were called to the home after the resident reported that someone was trying to break into the house. The officers arrived, met with the caller at the front door and walked to the back door, where the prowler was last seen. The officers were met with gunfire when they opened the back door. Robertson was shot in one of his legs by an AK-47 and fell to the ground. His partner returned fire, wounding one of the two people in the backyard.
Lombardo said assisting units arrived and one of them deployed a K-9, which stopped 20-year-old Clemon Hudson, who was armed with a shotgun, from fleeing. Hudson was arrested.
