LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Police say a man shot and killed another man in Las Vegas after he was asked to move out of a residence he was subleasing.

According to authorities, 44-year-old Antoine Cloutier got into an argument with his co-tenant at a home on Montcliff Avenue, near Rainbow Boulevard and Spring Mountain Road, on Sept. 10.

The argument turned physical, police say, and Cloutier pulled out a gun and shot the other person.

When officers arrived, they say they found the injured man on the driveway and Cloutier was gone. The man shot was transported to UMC Hospital where he was pronounced dead.
