LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas police held a press conference on Wednesday morning to further discuss a homicide investigation from March.

Authorities were originally called to a scene in the 300 block of Valley View Boulevard, between Meadows Lane and Alta Drive, back on March 22 at about 3:30 a.m. with reports of a shooting.

A clerk at a Circle K gas station told police about hearing gunshots before the body of 24-year-old Kashif Brown was found dead near one of the gas pumps.

No immediate arrests were announced at the time of the shooting and police are currently asking for the public's assistance to help with their investigation.
