Updated December 21, 2017 - 4:32 pm

One man was killed and another was injured after a shooting Tuesday night in the west valley, Las Vegas police said.

Police were called about 6:30 p.m. to the 3600 block of Starbright Lane, near El Capitan Way and Spring Mountain Road, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. David Gordon said.

The men were in front of a home when a man they knew approached them, police said. Moments later, the man shot both of them multiple times before leaving the scene. Metro said an argument about money or property may have prompted the shooting.

They were hospitalized at University Medical Center, where one of them died, police said. The second man was in critical condition, police later said.

The shooter remains at large, police said.

The Clark County coroner’s office will release the identity of the deceased man after relatives have been notified.

His death marks the 213th homicide Metro has investigated this year, and the 244th investigated within Clark County, according to Las Vegas Review-Journal statistics, which include deadly police shootings and the 58 people killed in the Oct. 1 mass shooting on the Strip.

Metro asked that anybody with information call Metro homicide detectives at 702-828-3521 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
