RENO, Nev. (AP) - Police have identified a man fatally shot at a Nevada Wal-Mart parking lot, possibly in self-defense during a road-rage-sparked fight.

The Reno Gazette-Journal reports (https://on.rgj.com/2fuszpZ) that officers confirmed Monday the death of 33-year-old Matthew McGraw on Thanksgiving night wasn’t related to early Black Friday shopping deals at the store.

Police believe he may have hit the gunman’s car with a metal pipe or bat before the shots were fired.

Reno Police spokesman Tim Broadway says the fight started after the drivers stopped in the lot near a freeway exit.

No one has been arrested and the shooter’s name has not been released.

Police haven’t said how the fight started.
