Las Vegas News for Monday, February 20th

1. A 17-year-old boy was fatally shot after a fight on a basketball court near the West Las Vegas Library. The teen was shot multiple times around 5 p.m. Sunday and died half an hour later. Just before the shooting, a Metro sergeant was handing out stickers and baseball cards to kids on the court. 2. An exodus of big-box stores has left gaping holes in retail centers around the valley. According to Sage Commercial Advisors, there are 107 empty retail spaces in the valley that are at least 10,000 square feet each. The wave of closing stores has left many shopping centers without an anchor. 3. State transportation officials are bracing for a traffic boom in northwest Las Vegas. The Centennial Bowl project is expected to be the second busiest interchange in Nevada and isn’t expected to be finished until this summer. An NDOT spokesman said among the improvements, U.S. 95 will eventually be widened, but advertising for that project won’t begin until late 2019.
