Las Vegas City police were examining a shooting that killed a 2-year-old kid in northeast Las Vegas late Wednesday morning.

Officers responded to the incident at the Estates at Westernaire apartment building on 3975 North Nellis Boulevard, near Las Vegas Boulevard at 11:52 a.m.

Murder Lt. Ray Spencer said 5 young boys, all under the age of 12, were playing in the back room of an apartment or condo, according to a preliminary examination. A 10-year-old kid who seemed the one who brought the gun, shot the 2-year-old in the center of the forehead, Spencer said.

Three of the kids ran away, while the mom of the child shot and a neighbor tried CPR unsuccessfully. Spencer said they were attempting to figure out where the weapon belonged and how the shooting occurred. A toy weapon was also recuperated from the scene, authorities said.

This is the second kid shot in the valley within 24 Hr. A baby remained in important condition after being shot in the stomach late Tuesday night.

No even more details were immediately launched.
