LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - The Henderson Police Department is investigating an officer-involved shooting.  

It began last night when the officer pulled over a stolen motorcycle near Lake Mead and Warm Springs.  

Police say the suspects directed the officer to a nearby home where the bike's rightful owner lived.  

But when he got there, a man inside ran away before opening fire. Police say the two exchanged gunfire and the suspect was taken to the hospital in unknown condition.  

The officer was not injured.  

The shooting is the second involving Henderson Police in the past week. On Tuesday, police shot a man who refused to put down a knife at the Bourbon Street Sports Bar on Boulder Highway and Major. That person is expected to survive.

The officers involved in the shootings have been place on routine paid administrative leave, pending the outcomes of the investigations
