LAS VEGAS - Metro Police are investigating a homicide near Flamingo Drive and Maryland Parkway Sunday night after a woman was shot in the back of the head.

The Clark County Coroners Office identified the victim as 39-year-old Layota Norgina Woolen with city of residency unknown.

Police say Woolen was found with several 'Dollar Tree' shopping bags.
