NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man whose burned body was found inside a North Las Vegas house believed to be lit on fire by an arsonist.

Family members of 26-year-old Jesse Swan spent Christmas Eve holding a vigil for the Las Vegas resident, whose body was found Thursday after the blaze.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office said that Swan died from a gunshot wound to the chest. His death has been ruled a homicide.

Family members say Swan had four children and was a great father. They say he had Christmas all planned for his brood.

The case is still under investigation. Police say they do not have any suspects at this time.
