After a string of shootings to close out the year, it looks like 2022 is getting ready to be another deadly year for Las Vegas. Just a day into the New Year and Las Vegas has already seen three separate shootings, with someone killed in each shooting.

Police believe the victim was in an argument with a male and a female. During that argument, the male took out a gun and shot him dead in the alley.

The second murder happened around 11:26 a.m. on January 1st around the 3200 block of East Flamingo. Police say 68-year-old Glenn Wright shot and killed a woman at an apartment complex in the area.

The third murder happed late last night around 12:30 a.m. Police are investigating a shooting that left one person shot and currently in surgery at a local hospital and one person dead right down the road from the Strat near Industrial Street and Chicago Avenue.

The three latest murders come just hours after a string of shootings and murders throughout the Las Vegas Valley.
