NLV Police search for possible witness to homicide

LAS VEGAS - Detectives with the North Las Vegas Police Department says it needs the public's help to find a person who may be a witness to a homicide that happened late last year.

According to police, on Dec. 30 around 6:00 p.m., officers were called to the area of Lake Mead Boulevard and Losee Road about a man laying down near the sidewalk.  When police arrived at the scene, they found the man suffering from unknown injuries.

Medical personnel arrived at the scene and transported the man to University Medical Center where he died from his injuries.

The preliminary investigation revealed the man had been shot before he was found by officers.  No one has been arrested for the crime, which is why North Las Vegas Police are still trying to locate any possible witnesses.

Detectives said the man they're trying to find was seen with the victim shortly before his death.  The witness is described as a black male adult who was wearing a red jacket, red beanie hat, red shoes and green camouflage legging style pants.

Anyone with information regarding this case, please call the North Las Vegas Police Department at 702-633-9111.
