LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police are investigating after a man was fatally shot at a gas station about a mile west of the Las Vegas Strip.

Las Vegas police say they found the man lying in the traffic lanes of West Tropicana Avenue when they arrived at about 11 p.m. Tuesday. He was taken to University Medical Center and later pronounced dead.

Investigators say the man had parked his vehicle at the gas pumps and stayed there for about 30 minutes. Police say he eventually got out and was standing nearby when he was struck by gunfire.

Authorities say two suspects got into a tan, four-door sedan and fled.

Police said Wednesday afternoon that they hadn’t identified suspects and didn’t have a motive.



Clark County coroner’s officials have not yet released the man’s identity.
