1 Shot Dead, 1 Wounded, 3 Arrested in Las Vegas Police Drug Raid

One person is dead, another is wounded and three other people were arrested after a police-involved shooting overnight in northeast Las Vegas.

Police say SWAT officers shot one person when he reached for a gun during a raid on an apartment near Cheyenne Road and North Las Vegas Boulevard.

Another person was shot with what police call a "low-lethal" round when he tried to escape by smashing out a window.

Police say they confiscated drugs and weapons in the apartment and arrested three women.

No names have been released.

Police say it's the eighth officer-involved shooting this year involving Las Vegas police.
