Metro Police Investigate Homicide

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS - Metro Police are investigating a homicide in the northeast valley.

Police arrived at approximately 6 p.m. Sunday at a home on Evening Rain Avenue near Carey Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard. Police say someone found a man with a gunshot wound in a garage.

The man was taken to the hospital, where he died a short time later. Police say they are not certain if the victim knew his assailant. Investigators are looking into robbery as a possible motive.

Police say a crime like this affects many people, especially a few days before Christmas.

"It affects everyone within the family, not only that victim, but those that are closest to that victim as well as the community as a whole," said Metro Police Lt. Ray Steiber. "There are people that want to be and deserve to be safe in their neighborhoods, and no one wants to come out and see the police investigate someone murdered in the neighborhood."

Witnesses say they saw two men leave the home in a minivan. Anyone with information is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
