A man was shot to death and a woman critically injured Tuesday in a shooting at a Las Vegas restaurant, on the Charleston block, according to Metro Police. The victims’ identities were not released, but police said they were a 40-year-old man and a woman who worked at the restaurant. The suspect fled before officers arrived, police said. No arrests were announced.
Metro police said the shooting appears to be “targeted” and the male suspect may have followed the victim inside the Teriyaki Madness restaurant before shooting and killing him. The 40-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene. There were no customers in the restaurant at the time of the shooting. The suspect, who is described as a thin Black adult man, was wearing a dark sweatshirt, shorts, and a black baseball hat.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the police or CrimeStoppers. A statement from Teriyaki Madness read, “We are deeply saddened to hear of the tragic incident that took place last night. Our thoughts are with the victim’s family and the injured as she recovers. The franchisee who owns and operates the restaurant is working with authorities on this matter.”
