Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police were involved in a shooting near Industrial Road and West Sahara Avenue on Friday evening.

Police told Action News the situation began as a robbery near Town Square. A suspect allegedly robbed two females in a parking lot near Stoney's Rockin' Country.

A police chase then took place, and there were reports the suspect was shooting at officers out of a vehicle during the chase.

The pursuit continued to Sahara and Industrial where an officer crashed. It's unclear whether anyone was injured.

The chase then continued to Tam Drive and Northbridge Street, where officers shot and killed the suspect.

Sahara was closed from Las Vegas Boulevard to I-15 while police investigated.

In addition, northbound I-15 was down to one lane at Flamingo where another responding officer was involved in a crash.
