Police investigate fatal shooting overnight in NE valley

Body discovered

A suspect in an overnight slaying at an apartment complex in Sunrise Manor has not yet been identified, Metro Police say.

In a news release this afternoon, Metro said police were called about 11:30 p.m. Thursday to the 3400 block of Marion Drive, near North Nellis Boulevard and East Cheyenne Avenue, to investigate a report of an injured male lying on the sidewalk.

Arriving officers found an adult male, dead from an apparent gunshot wound.

Investigators determined the shooting took place about a block away, in the parking lot of the Heritage Estates Apartment Homes complex, and the victim had walked to where his body was discovered.

Witnesses told investigators they had seen the victim with three other men in the parking lot of the apartment complex. There, an argument reportedly took place between some of the men, and multiple shots were heard.

Police say they do not know the motive for the shooting.

The victim’s identity, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.

Anyone with any information about the shooting is urged to contact Metro’s Homicide Section at 702-828-3521, or to remain anonymous contact Crime Stoppers at 702- 385-5555 or on the Internet.
