The Clark County coroner has identified a 17-year-old shot to death over the weekend at a West Las Vegas apartment complex as Leshonta Matthew Jr.
Police found Matthew mortally wounded when officers arrived a little before 3 p.m. Saturday at a report of shots fired at the complex on Doolittle Avenue.
That's near Martin Luther King Boulevard and Washington Avenue.
Matthew was rushed to University Medical Center but he was pronounced dead.
The coroner says he died of wounds to the head and neck.
Police say Matthew was with other people in the courtyard of the complex when an argument broke out and shots were fired.
No suspects have been identified.
