LAS VEGAS — Authorities say a naked gunman has been shot by Las Vegas police.

Police say the shooting happened Saturday morning in southeast Las Vegas.

The suspect, who was reported to be running in the area armed and nude, was shot by police.

The man was then taken to nearby hospital. His condition hasn't been released.

No officers were hurt.

This is the 16th police shooting in Las Vegas so far this year, a sharp increase from the 10 total police shootings in 2016. The shooting Saturday also marks the eighth instance where officers were shot or shot at in the past seven weeks.

On Tuesday, a man in a stolen truck died in a shootout with police, which also left an officer injured.
