The 12:20 a.m. incident closed the southeast lane of I-15 for hours, and the interstate remained closed at 7:30 a.m. on Spring Mountain Road, causing significant traffic headaches for early morning commuters. Lt. Ray Spencer of Las Vegas Police Suicide Details said he hoped to reopen around 9 a.m.
Spencer said the Nevada Highway Patrol reacted to the scene in what was originally thought to be a two-vehicle crash. The victim was found behind the wheel of a blue Nissan Versa.
“When the coroner arrived at the scene around 4 a.m. and began investigating the body, the coroner discovered the victim, who was in his late 30s, had a gunshot wound,” Spencer said.
Police believe the woman was shot as she was driving and her vehicle collided with another vehicle that was not involved in the shooting. Spencer said the victim worked in a casino area in the city and was driving home while she was dying.
