FERNLEY, NV - The Lyon County Sheriff's Office is investigating a shooting that happened early Friday morning.

Lieutenant Smith with the Lyon County's Sheriff's Office says police responded to 584 Village Drive in Fernley around 2:00 a.m. on Friday, May 9, 2014.

When police arrived, a woman told them her boyfriend, Spencer Brown, 21, shot a man, according to Lieutenant Smith.
