An 18-year-old Las Vegas teenager found shot to death inside a car at a local park about 3 a.m. Sunday has been identified.

The Clark County Coroner's Office said he was David Alden Miramontes.

Metro Police received several 911 calls about shots fired at Bob Baskin Park, 2801 W. Oakey Blvd., between Rancho Drive and Valley View Boulevard.
