LAS VEGAS -- A girl shot and killed during a home invasion in a western Las Vegas neighborhood has been identified as 15-year-old Alexis Postorino, according to the Clark County Coroner's Office.
Postorino and an unidentified man were both shot and found by police at a townhouse on Villa Lorena Drive near Grand Canyon Drive and Tropicana Avenue early Monday morning.
The teen was pronounced dead at University Medical Center, while the man was rushed into surgery and remains in critical condition, authorities said.
Some residents of the townhouse complex said they heard screams coming from Postorino’s home, and one neighbor told FOX5 she heard a man yelling that his daughter had been killed.
Police have not commented on the relationship between the victims.
The complex, which is not gated, had only recently opened, residents said. Several homes remain empty, and many people commented that they hadn’t yet met their neighbors.
Witnesses told police two men dressed in black clothing were seen running from the home, but did not provide any further description.
Anyone with information about the shootings is urged to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
