Metro police say a man is dead following a drive-by shooting on a Las Vegas street.

The shooting happened just before 11 p.m. Saturday near the intersection of St. Louis Avenue and Fremont Street.

Police say the victim was walking down the street when he was approached by a light-colored four-door sedan. A person inside fired several shots at the victim.

The car then took off down Olive Street.

The victim was taken to UMC where he was later pronounced dead.

This is the 100th homicide in Metro's jurisdiction.

Anyone with any information on the suspect is asked to call Crimestoppers at (702)-828-3521.
