UPDATE: The Clark County Coroner identified the victim as Canderio Duran.

The official cause of death was a homicide from multiple gunshot wounds.


LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- A man's body was found Saturday afternoon near Cheyenne Avenue and Pecos Road.

Las Vegas police received the call around 1:17 p.m. in the 3200 block of Covey Lane. A woman found a man shot in the back of an apartment building.

Six separate neighbors told police they heard gunshots. No one said anything to police about hearing a struggle or any shouting that might have been part of an altercation.

Officers say the shots most likely weren't reported because the sound is heard often in this neighborhood. Neighbors say getting used to gunshots the way they have is no way to live.

"I have to be here with my husband and it's scary to see all of the drug addicts and all these crazy people around here," Joanne Rasmussen said. "No control over it and we need more help."

The suspect remains on the loose.

This is the 109th homicide investigated by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in 2016. The identity of the victim will be released by the Clark County coroner.

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
