Manhunt on for shooter in Las Vegas police officer shooting.

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A man opened fire Thursday and wounded a police officer responding to a nearby domestic dispute, sparking an hours-long manhunt in an area of high-rise condominiums, homes and businesses south of the Las Vegas Strip, authorities said.

Clark County Sheriff Joe Lombardo, who was driving nearby at the time, told reporters he gave chase on foot when he saw a man matching a description of the assailant running from the area.

Police cordoned off a wide area around the apartment complex on Las Vegas Boulevard near Pebble Road and enlisted dogs, a helicopter and dozens of officers to search parking lots, apartment hallways and nearby vacant buildings.
