One man dead and one wounded following shootout

A confrontation over a debt left one man dead and another with a gunshot wound to the head.

Allen Ray Prince was pronounced dead upon arrival Tuesday evening at Sunrise Medical Center in Las Vegas. Prince, 40, of Kingman was airlifted from Kingman Regional Medical Center with multiple gunshot wounds to his torso and leg.

Blake Andrew Bloomberg is in stable condition at Sunrise Medical Center. Bloomberg, 20, of Kingman was also airlifted from KRMC with a single gunshot to the head.

"It appears that Prince arrived at the residence to confront one of the residents about a debt," Kingman Police Sgt. Rusty Cooper said.

"The confrontation ended in gunfire, with Prince being shot several times to his body, and Bloomberg being shot once in his head."

The Kingman Police and Fire departments responded to a report of shots fired at the residence in the 500 block of Wilshire Avenue around 4:55 p.m.

Upon arrival, officers found Prince in the street in front of the residence with multiple gunshot wounds. River Medical transported Prince to KRMC.

While securing the scene, officers learned Bloomberg had also been shot and was taken to KRMC by a private vehicle before police arrived.

On Aug. 22, 2005, Bloomberg was found guilty of theft in Mohave County Superior Court.

On Feb. 21, 2006, he was found guilty of attempted possession of a weapon by a prohibited person, which violated his probation.

No arrests have been made, Cooper said. He added no charges have been filed yet.

KPD detectives are investigating the shooting as a homicide. They have obtained a search warrant of the residence and are examining the vehicles connected with the incident.
