LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police are searching for a suspect in a deadly shooting at a Las Vegas apartment complex.

Authorities said Friday that they are looking for 23-year-old Jessie Sheppard.

The incident began when officers were called to a domestic disturbance just after 5 a.m. Thursday. Upon arrival, they found a man dead in the parking lot with gunshot wounds.

According to investigators, a woman reported that her ex-boyfriend had forced his way inside and battered her before leaving.

Family members of the woman then forced their way into another unit to confront the suspect.



Police say that is when the victim, one of the relatives joining the confrontation, was fatally shot.

The suspect was not there by the time officers arrived.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office will release the victim’s identity.
