Metro Police held a news conference at the Circle K on Valley View Boulevard and Alta Drive where Brown was killed.

He had pulled into the gas station around 3:30 a.m. to fill up his car before heading to work when a car pulled up next to him. Police said the suspect was looking for a person to rob.

“At that point, the suspect approached Kashif firing multiple rounds striking and killing him at the gas pumps directly behind me,” said Metro Lt. Ray Spencer.

Metro released this video showing surveillance video which shows the shooting and the suspect’s vehicle which is described as possibly a 2015 gray Chrysler 300 driven by a Black man who had a Black female passenger.

“I urge everyone to please watch the video and reach out to us because you could have the answer that would give this family behind me closure and hold the person responsible for this horrific crime,” Lt. Spencer said.

“His girls will never get to grow up with their dad. He was always there with his family. He wasn’t in the streets. He would go to work, go back home and be with his family.”

Police said a reward is being offered in the case and urge anyone with any kind of information to contact the LVMPD Homicide Section at (702) 828-3521 or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
