Police found a man dead inside a home Saturday afternoon.
Around 1:43 p.m. Saturday, police received information that a man may have been shot two to three days before inside a residence in the 4400 block of Via San Rafael, near Flamingo Road and Arville Street. Officers entered the residence and found the man dead from an apparent gunshot wound.
The preliminary investigation indicated the house is not occupied by any owner or renter, but is used by many different people.
Two to three days ago, the victim and several other people were at the residence when a verbal argument occurred, police said. At some point in the argument, a gunshot was heard and the victim was seen lying on the ground, according to police.
No suspect or suspects have been identified, but the motive may be narcotics related, police said.
This is the 115th homicide investigated by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in 2015.
The identity of the victim will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
Anyone with information is asked to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
