Las Vegas patrol officers were sent to an apartment located in the 3600 block of Ala Drive to investigate a report of a man down inside of the residence and possibly deceased at approximately 8:39 p.m. on June 29.

A resident of the apartment had come home to discover a roommate lying on the floor and unresponsive. Arriving officers located an adult male deceased inside of the apartment. Evidence at the scene indicated the death was not natural and homicide detectives were called to the scene.

The investigation initiated by the LVMPD Homicide Section revealed that arguing was heard coming from the apartment earlier in the evening.

There appeared to be a struggle between the victim and suspect or suspects that resulted in the death of the victim. The identity of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office when it becomes available.

At this time, no suspect or suspects have been identified and the motive is unknown.

Anyone with any information about this incident is asked to contact Crime Stoppers by phone at 702-385-5555.
