Police say a man in the parking lot opened fire and hit four people.

One died on the scene, another at the hospital, and two others were left injured.

Right now police don't have any solid suspect description so they're looking for help to catch a shooter.

"We urge anybody that has any information, please reach out to Crime Stoppers," said Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Ray Spencer. "You can do it anonymously. There is reward money available."

"You can also reach out to homicide@lvmpd.com," he said.

Police say they are canvassing the area for witnesses and looking for any surveillance video in the area that could have caught the shooter.
