LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas police are investigating a deadly shooting at a bus stop in the southeast valley.
Tropicana Avenue was closed to traffic east of Nellis Boulevard to Morris Street where the shooting occurred while police investigated.
According to Metro police Lt. Jason Johansson, the shooting was reported around 2:15 a.m. and when officers arrived at the scene, they found a Hispanic man, identified as 62-year-old Paulo Viana, near the bus stop, suffering gunshot wounds.
The man was transported to Sunrise Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead.
Johansson said the investigation is in its preliminary stages but there was some kind of argument between the victim and another man.
“During the altercation, he was shot several times,” Johansson said.
He said the only information police have is that the suspect was wearing dark clothing. Johansson said police are looking for witnesses and any cameras in the area that might have captured video or images.
