LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- Police are investigating a shooting that took place near Owens Avenue and Pecos Road around 2 a.m. Tuesday.
It happened at an apartment complex located in the 1400 block of North Sandhill Road.
Arriving officers located an adult male inside of an apartment suffering from multiple apparent gunshot wounds. The man was transported to the UMC Trauma Center where he was later pronounced deceased.
Investigators say the victim had been in the apartment with the tenant and other family members when a male suspect kicked in the front door and gunshots were heard. Two black male adults were seen running from the apartment after the shots were fired.
This is the 52nd homicide investigated by the LVMPD in 2016. The identity of the deceased as well as the cause and manner of death will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
No arrests have been made, but the suspect is believed to be known to the victim and this does not appear to be a random incident.
