LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police are investigating after a male victim was found shot dead on a sidewalk west of downtown Las Vegas.
Authorities say they found the victim dead on the 1000 block of North Decatur Boulevard a little before 11 p.m. Tuesday.
Investigators say the victim had been walking on the sidewalk when someone in a red sports car pulled up next to him. Police say the victim and the driver spoke briefly before the driver got out and shot the victim multiple times.
The driver fled before officers arrived.
Police said midday Wednesday that nobody had been arrested yet, and a motive was unknown.
The Clark County coroner's office has not yet released the victim's identity.
