LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police say a shopper carrying a big-screen TV home from a Target on Thanksgiving was shot by a thief.

Authorities say the incident happened about 9:45 p.m. Thursday on Cambridge Street, not far from the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.

Police Lt. David Gordon says the victim was carrying the TV at an apartment complex when a suspect fired warning shots, prompting him to drop the appliance.

Gordon says the robber snatched the TV and took it to a vehicle, and the victim tried to wrestle it back.

That's when police say the robber fired shots and hit the victim in the leg.

The shopper was taken to Sunrise Hospital with injuries that aren't considered life-threatening.

No arrests have been made. It's unclear what happened to the TV.
