Metro authorities are on the scene of an officer-involved shooting in the northwest valley.

Authorities are examining an officer-involved shooting that occurred near Buffalo Drive and Alta Drive Sunday early morning.

Sgt. John Sheahan with LVMPD told FOX5 they got a call at 7:30 a.m. of shots fired outside of a house on the 4000 block of Lakehurst Roadway. Neighbors reported a man firing multiple weapons into the air beyond a residence.

The man was shot by officers at 9:40 a.m. and transported to an area healthcare facility where he later on died. The Clark County Coroner’s Office will certainly launch his identity once family has actually been notified.
