UPDATE: Detectives looking for person of interest in deadly shooting

LAS VEGAS - UPDATE: Detectives are looking to speak with 49-year-old John Moskop in connection to Saturday's shooting. Police are calling Moskop a person of interest.

Police say a man is dead after being shot in the middle of a neighborhood road Saturday afternoon.

It happened in the area of Rainbow Boulevard and Flamingo Road around 12:00 p.m.

Witnesses told Las Vegas Metropolitan Police investigators there was an argument before they heard the gunshot.

The man was shot in the neck and died at the hospital, according to police. Several people were seen leaving the house after the shooting.

Officers believe drugs may have been played a part in the crime. However, they're still waiting for a search warrant to enter the home.

Detectives hope technology can help them track down the killer in this case.

“The home surveillance has been so helpful for us,” said Lt. Dan McGrath, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

“Trying to get images of vehicles or people as their leaving we have video forensics people that are coming out, and that's what their job is going to be is to go all these addresses and see if anybody's camera is pointed at this part of the street."

Detectives believe those involved in the shooting may have taken off in what appears to be a gray Dodge Magnum

They're asking anyone with information to call Police or Crime Stoppers.

Neighbors say this has been a problem house for the community and they're troubled by Saturday’s deadly shooting.

As far as the victim, the coroner will release his name once the family is notified.
