The Clark County coroner’s office has identified a man who was shot and killed early Sunday at an apartment complex in the southwest Las Vegas Valley.

He was 24-year-old Marcos Valenzuela, of Las Vegas, the coroner’s office said.

About 3 a.m. Sunday, police received multiple reports of gunshots at an apartment complex at 6355 S. Durango Drive, near West Sunset Road, Metropolitan Police Department homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said. Police found a scene at the complex, and were told a man suffering from a gunshot wound had been dropped off at Spring Valley Hospital and Medical Center.

Valenzuela died at the hospital from a gunshot wound of the leg, and his death was ruled a homicide, the coroner’s office said.

On Sunday, Spencer said police were attempting to determine why Valenzuela was at the apartment complex and who shot him.

As of Tuesday morning, police had not arrested anyone in connection with Valenzuela’s death, Spencer said.

Further information was not immediately available.
