UPDATE APRIL 28: The Clark County Coroner has identified the deceased victim as 26-year-old Darrell White. White's death was due to a gunshot wound to the torso and it was ruled a homicide.

Police are investigating a deadly early morning shooting on the Las Vegas Strip Sunday where one person was killed and two others were injured.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer says around 3 a.m. a group of men got into a fight outside of the Hawaiian Marketplace on Las Vegas Boulevard, near Harmon Avenue.

Soon after, one of the men in the group began shooting, striking a man involved in the altercation before taking off from the scene.

Spencer says two men tried chasing the suspected gunman, Frost, with one throwing a rock at his head.

However, Frost then turned and fired three more shots, striking another man in the leg with a ricochet hitting a third person. Both of these men were expected to survive with treatment being done at Sunrise Hospital for the man who was shot in the leg.

Spencer says police arrived within a minute of the shooting and officers were able to take the gunman into custody at a nearby motel.

Frost was transported to University Medical Center where he was treated for his head injury.

After being released he was booked at Clark County Detention Center on Open Murder and Attempted Murder charges.

The identification of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.

All of the men involved in this incident were in their 20s, according to police, and the shooter is believed to be from Las Vegas.
