On Feb. 2, 2018, at 10:03 a.m., patrol officers responded to North 14th Street and US 95 to investigate a report of an unresponsive adult male under the freeway bridge.

When officers arrived, they found a deceased adult male who appeared to have been shot.

The investigation initiated by the LVMPD Homicide Section indicates the victim was homeless in the area and was sleeping under the bridge.

At approximately 4:16 a.m., video surveillance in the area captured a dark colored SUV drive up and park near where the victim was found. An unknown race adult male can be seen walking up to the victim and shooting him. The suspect then runs back to the SUV and drives off.

Currently, the police are doing forensic testing to determine if and any of the killings could be linked. They also said the FBI is working to enhance the video they are asking the public to look at.

The identity of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
