LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas detectives are investigating a deadly shooting in the east part of the city early Thursday morning.

Authorities say a man was shot during a fight near Boulder Highway and Nellis Boulevard.

That man then ran to Sam's Town hotel-casino, where he told people he had been shot, according to police, but he collapsed. The man was then taken to a local hospital where he later died.

Investigators determined the victim was sitting at a bus stop when he was approached by two unidentified male suspects, according to a Thursday afternoon press release from Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

Police say the victim and one of the suspects got into an argument before the suspect pulled out a firearm and shot the victim.
