The shooting took place at 3 AM and, according to the police reports, a man walked up to the victim and fatally shot him before escaping. Local TV station KLAS reported the incident. The report says that the two men did not appear to have interacted before the shooting.
There aren’t any details revealed by the police about the victim and his fatal wounds. According to the report, the deceased is believed to be of Hispanic background and was in his late 20s. An autopsy is likely to follow soon. The police continue their investigation, reviewing the surveillance tape videos from PT’s Place.
