Homicide detectives determined the victim was standing in the doorway of a motel room when he got into a verbal argument with an unknown suspect. The suspect opened fire striking the victim, and drove off in a white 4-door sedan with dark tinted windows. The vehicle was last seen driving eastbound on Fremont Street.
The suspect is described as a tall, Hispanic or Filipino adult male in his 20s and having a skinny build. He was also described as wearing a black hat, white T-shirt, and a black hooded sweatshirt.
The identity of the deceased victim, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
