LAS VEGAS (AP) - Authorities have identified a 25-year-old man found shot dead in a desert area in south Las Vegas earlier this week.

Clark County coroner’s officials say Las Vegas resident Rashard Felipe Acuna died of a gunshot wound to the back before being found Monday evening not far from the Henderson Executive Airport.

Authorities say gunshots were reported about 7:30 p.m. Monday near La Cienega Street and Neal Avenue. Acuna was found about 100 feet off the road and pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the Acuna had been having a conversation with two people near a dark-colored vehicle just before shots rang out.

Authorities haven’t identified any suspects, and say a motive is unclear.
