LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police in Las Vegas are looking for a suspect or several suspects involved in a shooting between two vehicles that left a man dead.

Las Vegas police said Sunday afternoon that the shooting occurred northeast of downtown on Owens Avenue on Saturday.

Officers found a man around 4:30 p.m. in a white SUV who had a gunshot wound. He died later at a hospital.
