LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — The Clark County Coroner has identified Lonnie Duane Stribling, 51, as the man shot and killed at a gas station near Jones and Warm Springs Thursday night. His death was ruled a homicide, caused by a gunshot wound of the neck.

Metro Police say Stribling was killed after an argument with workers at a food truck.

Police say this incident happened around 8 p.m. An NHP Trooper was driving by when a group of people flagged him down. He then came upon citizens giving first aid to a man who had been shot.


In the group of people, the Trooper noticed a woman with a gun. It is believed that she was the shooter.

Based on preliminary investigation, Lt. Ray Spencer with Metro police says they have discovered that Stribling approached the food truck and got into an argument with the workers. According to witness interviews, police believe he pulled a gun on the food truck workers. Then, the female worker fired her gun at Stribling, killing him. It is not yet known if he fired any rounds.

Police also say they think the woman is Stribling’s sister-in-law.

Police are not yet sure if the woman will be charged, or if this is a self-defense situation.

This is an ongoing investigation. Police say they will be interviewing “quite a few witnesses” at the scene.
