LAS VEGAS (AP) - The coroner in Las Vegas has identified a 26-year-old man shot and killed in Sin City’s first homicide of 2015 as Kendral Leonard Earl Anderson.

The release of Anderson’s name on Monday came after Las Vegas police reported that he had a gun when he was shot, and the early Jan. 1 slaying appeared to have been self-defense.

Police say Anderson forced his way into a Bruce Street apartment in an apparent effort to confront people with whom he had a prior physical dispute.

Anderson was pronounced dead later at University Medical Center.
