The North Las Vegas Police Department reports that multiple people were been shot near Iverson Lane, a residential area Clayton Street and Gowan Road.

The shooting was reported at around 10:13 p.m. on Saturday.

Officers found multiple people with gunshot wounds at the scene, and three people were sent to UMC. NLVPD later discovered that a fourth person brought themselves to the hospital after the shooting.

None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, and police have yet to release any information the ages or descriptions of anyone involved.

News 3 obtained Ring video from a neighbor which shows the violence. The video shows multiple shots fired, and people running.

A witness, who declined to be identified for fear of retribution, says there was a party happening on her street that Halloween night.

NLVPD reports that they are investigating multiple scenes in the area, one of which is a house party. However, its role in the crime remains unclear.

"There had to be around fifty people out here--most of them being teenagers," the witness said.

Police told News 3 they believe the cause of the shooting was a dispute, but could not confirm what it was about. But the witness told our cameras she heard a loud, angry argument outside her home mere moments before bullets flew.

"It sounded like a lot of teenagers fighting over candy," she said. "Like they were going to fight each other over candy."

It remains unclear if that argument was related to the shooting. The witness says she heard shots and screams. She ran outside to help one of the victims, who she described as a teen boy.

"I ran to him, tried to help him to see his wound, and we put him in my friend's mother in law's car and took him to the hospital," she said.

Police say the public should not feel afraid.

“This is not believed to be a random act of violence, nor should the public be alarmed,” NLVPD said in a statement.

Officers are interviewing witnesses and attempting to get information about the suspect.

Anyone with information about the shooting is asked to call NLVPD at 702-633-9111. To remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
