One man is dead following a shooting Thursday night in North Las Vegas.

Around 8:20 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 2100 block of East Cheyenne Avenue, near Civic Center Drive, regarding a shooting. 

Arriving officers located a 23-year-old man down in the business parking lot.  Medical personnel arrived and pronounced the man deceased on scene.

The preliminary investigation indicates the North Las Vegas victim was standing outside of a retail store when he was approached by another man. Witnesses reported the suspect shot the man at least once before he fled the scene.

Evidence suggests the two men may have known each other.  No one else was injured in the shooting.

The Clark County coroner will release the identity, and cause and manner of death, pending notification of next of kin.

Anyone with information about this homicide is urged to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at 702-633-9111 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
