LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County Coroner identified Gary Adam Ferency, 49, as the victim who died after a physical fight in the southeast Valley on May 11. His death was ruled a homicide, caused by blunt force injuries to the head.

The incident occurred just before 6 p.m. in the 5500 block of Gateway near Russell and Lamb.

Police say when officers responded, they found Ferency lying and bleeding on the ground.

Someone who lives in the area said they heard a commotion beforehand, Metro said. When that resident came outside, they found Ferency on the sidewalk.

Investigators said Ferency had severe injuries to the head, and according to detectives, he appeared to have been in some kind of physical fight with an unknown suspect. He was taken to the hospital, where he died from his injuries.

The suspect remains at large.

“We have no witnesses to what occurred,” said Metro Lt. Ray Spencer. “We are in the area canvassing for video right now, attempting to identify a suspect. We don’t know how the suspect came or left the scene. We also don’t know how the victim came or left the scene.”

This is the second homicide in Las Vegas in just the past two nights.
