LAS VEGAS, NV (KLAS)– Police are investigating a fatal shooting in Spring Valley Sunday afternoon.
Police were called to the scene at around 3:45 p.m. on a report of a male shot multiple times in the 4550 block of West Sahara.
The male victim, who is believed to be in his early 30s was transported to UMC Trauma, where he later died.
According to police, this morning at around 7 a.m., the victim’s mother gave him money to buy a money order for the rent. The son didn’t return to the residence until shortly after 3 p.m.
“When he returned he appeared to be under the influence of drugs and intoxicated. He also didn’t have the rent money or the money order,” Lt. Raymond Spencer said. “This caused an argument inside the apartment between the sister, the mother, and the son. At some point, there was another male who was inside the apartment who confronted the victim stating he didn’t need to talk to the women in the apartment in the matter that he was.”
The two males got into an altercation and the suspect shot the victim multiple times, according to police.
Police are still trying to determine who that male was in the apartment.
The victim lives in the apartment with his sister and mother.
