Coroner identifies man killed in 'road rage' incident

LAS VEGAS -- The Coroner's Office has identified the man killed during what Metro Police say was a "road rage" incident in the northwest part of valley early Saturday morning.

He's 28-year-old Christopher Dodge of Las Vegas.

Lieutenant Ray Steiber with Metro's homicide division says police received a call from a passerby, just after midnight, to report a body on the sidewalk near near Racel Street and El Capitan Way.

Steiber says a preliminary investigation shows a "road rage incident" led to a fight that ultimately led to Dodge's death.

Police are currently looking for two suspects in connection with the case. Witnesses say they saw a white vehicle driven by an African-American woman with a light-skinned African-American man in the passenger seat.

This is the 67th Homicide in Metro's jurisdiction for 2014. 

Anyone with information in connection to this case is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
