Coroner IDs 2 men killed in Historic Westside shooting

The Clark County coroner’s office identified two victims killed in a Sunday shooting in a Historic Westside parking lot.

They were Laron Dolly, 31, and Hayward Matthews, 38.

Gunfire erupted shortly after midnight in the 700 block of West Owens Avenue.

Officers found a mortally wounded Matthews at the scene, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

Police said they later learned that Dolly had been taken to a hospital, where he, too, died.

The shooting stemmed from a “verbal altercation” between a group of people outside a business, police said.

Police had not announced any arrests or additional information as of Thursday.
