LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say a man is dead and a woman critically wounded after being shot by a man who apparently followed the male victim into a restaurant before opening the fire.

The shooter ran off and no immediate arrest was made following the Tuesday night incident in the Summerlin area west of downtown.

No identities were released but police said the victims were a 40-year-old man and a woman who worked at the restaurant.

“The victim appears to have been specifically targeted by the suspect,” a police statement said.

There were no customers in the restaurant at the time of the shooting, according to police.

Police responding to 911 calls about a shooting found the two victims, police Lt. Dave Valenta said.
