Las Vegas police shot a man they said randomly stabbed two women Friday afternoon in the west valley.
The man stabbed two women — one on a bus and another on the street — and carried a knife as he ran from officers near Spring Mountain Road and Rainbow Boulevard, Metropolitan Police Department Capt. Jamie Prosser told reporters at a Friday briefing.
Police say there is no connection between the man and the victims.
“We believe it to be completely random,” Prosser said.
An officer shot the man as he made his way past an occupied bus stop on Rainbow, south of the intersection with Spring Mountain. He was hospitalized in critical condition at University Medical Center, Prosser said.
The women were treated and released from the county hospital.
