LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Metro police are investigating a homicide in the 2700 block of E Bonanza Rd. Tuesday afternoon.

In a media briefing, police said that officers responded to an apartment at around 2:30 p.m. and found a victim, described as a Black man in his late 40s, suffering from a gunshot wound.

Preliminary investigation indicated that the victim was inside the apartment with several other people when the alleged suspect, a Black man described to be 40 to 50 years old, entered and began to argue with the victim.

Police said that the argument led to a physical altercation before the suspect pulled out a handgun and shot the victim multiple times before fleeing out the back window.

The victim was transported to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced deceased.
