Man hurt in Five Corners shooting

By , Columbian Features Editor

A man was shot in the leg Friday night outside his home in the Five Corners neighborhood, according to the Clark County Sheriff’s Office.

At about 8:25 p.m., deputies responded to reports of gunfire in the 9400 block of Northeast 100th Way.

The victim told deputies he had been followed home by a man he didn’t know, maybe driving a red Jeep, who shot him once as he was getting out of his car in the driveway. Deputies collected several shell casings from the victim’s driveway, and noted his car had bullet holes in the driver’s side, roof and rear.

Witnesses in the neighborhood reported a vehicle fleeing the neighborhood just after the shooting, according to the sheriff’s office. The witnesses described the vehicle as being a red or orange SUV or hatchback.

The sheriff’s office is continuing to investigate.
