Upon arrival, Deputies observed an adult male victim with a gunshot wound to the chest. The victim was transported to Kingman Regional Medical Center and later transported by helicopter to a Las Vegas hospital where he is currently listed in critical condition.

Detectives with the Mohave County Sheriff’s Office responded to the scene and assumed the investigation.
