Coroner identifies man found dead after North Las Vegas house fire

The Clark County coroner’s office Thursday identified a North Las Vegas man found dead after a house fire.

Deshante Andre Sherman, 48, was found Monday inside a two-story home in the 2200 block of Keller Court.

North Las Vegas police responded to the home around 10 a.m. for a domestic disturbance. A woman called police saying her husband had a firearm and had lit the house on fire, according to the department.

Police used a loud speaker in an attempt to get the man to come outside.

Sherman died from a gunshot wound to the head, according to the coroner. His death was ruled a suicide.
