Update: Teen shot and killed identified

NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. - The Clark County Coroner's Office has identified the 18-year-old shot and killed late Thursday night as Tyrell Melton of Las Vegas.

North Las Vegas Police say the shooting occurred shortly after 11 p.m. on Via Maria Court near Lone Mountain Road and Commerce Street.

When officers arrived, they found the teen lying on the ground unresponsive, suffering from a gunshot wound. Police say a 14-year-old girl, who was with the teen, was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries.

Evidence suggest the shooting stemmed from an argument that happened earlier in the evening. The suspect in the shooting is still at large.
