Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Metro Police are looking for a white van driven by a gunman who shot and killed another driver on Interstate 15 during an apparent road rage fight, and then kept driving.

The man who was shot was driving a 4-door Chrysler sedan. He was taken to UMC, where he was pronounced dead. His female passenger was uninjured. Both were tourists from California, police said.

Metro Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said the suspect’s van was behind the Chrysler as they traveled northbound on I-15 between Silverado Ranch and Blue Diamond Road.

At some point, police said, the van pulled up beside the victim and several shots were fired, striking him.

The victim was in his mid-50s, police said.

Police believe there were two people inside the van, but there are few details. Metro police are hoping someone will come forward with new clues. They are calling on anyone with dash-cam or GoPro video who might have been traveling on northbound I-15 at that time to come foward.

The call first went out shortly before 8 p.m. as a shots fired call, according to a tweet from Nevada Highway Patrol tweet on Monday night.

The suspect’s vehicle was last seen northbound on I-15.

Anyone with information should call 911, Metro Police, or can remain anonymous by calling CrimeStoppers at 702-385-5555.
