LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified a 42-year-old man who died after a weekend shooting at a Las Vegas auto repair shop.

Clark County coroner’s officials say Nevada resident John Benjamin Kraai died of a gunshot wound to the torso.

Police say officers found two people with gunshot wounds when they responded to the shop on Western Avenue near Oakley Boulevard on Sunday evening. They eventually found a third injured person and transported all three to area hospitals, where Kraai later died.

Police Lt. Ray Steiber told KLAS-TV the shooting may have stemmed from a dispute between the three. He says the victims knew each other but it’s not clear if they worked at the auto shop.
