Details scarce in fatal shooting of juvenile in Pahrump

A juvenile has died after sustaining injuries in a shooting.

The Nye County Sheriff’s Office has declined to release details regarding the shooting death at a residence along the 300 block of Jarvis Road this week.

Crews were dispatched to the home at approximately 10:20 a.m on Monday, Jan. 3 after reports of a gunshot wound, Pahrump Valley Fire & Rescue Services Chief Scott Lewis said.

Medics said the patient did not survive the injury.

It’s too early to determine if the shooting was accidental, Lewis said.

The sheriff’s office is investigating.
