LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The coroner's office has identified a man found by police with gunshot wounds in an east Las Vegas parking lot over the weekend.

Clark County Coroner's Office says 27-year-old Bliod E. Engeda is the man police say was holding a gun when officers found him with gunshot wounds on Saturday. He was pronounced dead on the scene.

Police say Engeda was confronted by two men in a parking lot on Twain Avenue near University Center Drive, leading to a fight. The men shot at each other, according to authorities.

Shortly after the shooting, a man was brought to Sunrise Hospital with a gunshot wound. Officers believe he is involved in the deadly shooting and was taken into custody.

Detectives also say Engeda was a person of interest in a separate shooting earlier that same day, on Wynn Road near Twain Avenue. There were no injuries from that incident.

The deadly shooting remains under investigation.
