FERNLEY, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- A motorcyclist was shot in the arm while riding in the desert on Saturday.
According to Lyon County Sheriff’s Deputies, three motorcycle riders were riding in the desert near a dry lake bed known as Sarasota Flats, when one of them was shot in the elbow. The injury is not life-threatening.
