Police are investigating the homicide within the western Las Vegas Valley

Las Vegas Police are investigating a murder in the West Valley early Saturday.

The murder occurred near the 6000 block of West Flamingo Road, near Decatur Boulevard

According to Metro booking logs, ShotSpotter, the division’s shot detection system, reported gunshots to police shortly after 2:50 a.m. in a mall on 6020 W. Flamingo Road.

Officials continued investigating Saturday morning when yellow tape at the crime scene blocked people from much of the parking lot.

A man stood in front of the belt and waited for his wife, who he said was in one of the shops.

The man who refused to give his name said when he got to the facility he saw a body lying on the floor between an Italian restaurant and a hookah lounge. The body was removed from the Clark County coroner’s office, he said.

Further information was not immediately available.
