Man killed, another hurt in shooting outside strip club

A shooting outside of a strip club left one man dead and a second wounded early Sunday morning, Las Vegas police said.

The identity of the deceased man was not released.

The shooting occurred about 4:48 a.m. outside the Deja Vu club, in the 4700 block of Arville Street near Tropicana Avenue, west of the Strip.

Police said two men were asked to leave the club. Once outside of the club, one of the men, who had been involved in a verbal altercation inside the business, was shot while standing in the club's valet parking area. Multiple rounds were fired at him, police said.

Homicide Lt. Lew Roberts said the shooting victim died at University Medical Center.

He added another man, who appeared to have no relationship with the men asked to leave the club, was struck in the foot with gunfire.

Roberts said two men wearing dark clothing fled the scene. The shooter was wearing a hooded sweatshirt. Police did not have better descriptions. Roberts said the slaying victim and suspects appeared to be gang members.

Roberts said the shooting did not appear to be related to the previous night's basketball game between UNLV and top-ranked North Carolina at the nearby Orleans Arena. The Rebels beat the Tar Heels, 90-80.
