Metro releases video of people detectives want to question about deadly shooting


Metro Police released surveillance video Wednesday of a man homicide detectives would like to speak to in regards to a deadly shooting that occurred earlier this month.

According to Metro, at around 1:57 p.m. on Feb. 3, patrol officers were dispatched to a parking lot located in the 3900 block of East Owens Avenue to investigate a report that a man had been shot. 

When officers arrived at the scene, they found an unresponsive man suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The investigation initiated by the LVMPD Homicide Section discovered that the victim, whose identity wasn’t released, and the suspect had a physical altercation inside a local store in the area.

At some point, the suspect left the convenience store and walked outside to the parking lot. He got into a black Dodge Charger, and the Metro said the victim followed and went up to the driver side window.

The two struggled over a handgun, and that’s when the victim was shot, Metro said. The victim fell to the ground, and the suspect drove off and left the area.

The suspect is described as a black man approximately 5-feet-9-inches tall, with a medium build and braided hair. 

The suspect was last seen wearing a doo rag, a dark jacket, dark jeans, and a gold necklace. The identity of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
