Man shot and killed inside bar near Charleston, Decatur; police looking for suspect

Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas police are searching for the suspect involved in a deadly shooting at a bar overnight.

It happened around 3 a.m. Sunday at the PT’s Place near Charleston and Decatur.

Police say a man walked up to another man, shot him and left the bar.

“What we have learned at this point is the victim and the suspect were both in the bar separately for several hours before the shooting,” LVMPD Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said.

The victim is described by police as an Hispanic man in his late 20s. The Clark County Coroner’s Office will release his identity in the coming days.

“There appears to be no interaction between the two,” Lt. Spencer noted.

This happened in the Westland Complex, which has many major retailers and businesses. Shoppers that we spoke to say they have been going here for years without any problems, so this comes as a surprise.

“It is absolutely concerning,” said Beth Lourcey, who lives nearby. “It’s a fluke to me because you don’t hear about stuff like that around here as much. It’s not this side of town.”

“Kind of shocking and kind of scary because I’m like, especially if it was random. That means anybody anywhere can just randomly ‘hey’, you never know,” said shopper Sunday McCollum.

Right now, police are going through surveillance video from PT’s Place. We have requested that video from PT’s and police but have not yet heard back.

If you know anything about this shooting, please call Crime Stoppers, (702) 385-5555.
