A shooting at a Maverick gas station in Las Vegas, Nev., left one person dead and two others injured on June 26, 2016, according to KTNV News. Las Vegas Metropolitan Police arrived at the 10400 block of Bermuda Road, near Cactus Avenue, and found three men had been shot.

All three injured men were transported to University Medical Center. The man who died was initially listed in critical condition, before being pronounced dead. The two surviving victims are in stable condition. The identities of the victims have not been released.
