The Clark County coroner has released the identity of the man who was killed this week in a shooting in the southeast Las Vegas Valley.
Police said 38-year-old Kevin Alexander Jr. was shot Tuesday at his apartment complex in the 4600 block of Vegas Valley Drive, near Nellis Boulevard.
A man who appeared to be wearing a bulletproof vest shot at Alexander’s apartment from the outside, police said. When Alexander jumped off an outside stairway to escape, the man twice shot Alexander.
Alexander died at University Medical Center. His death was ruled a homicide.
“It was definitely targeted,” Metropolitan Police Lt. Dan McGrath said Tuesday. “It wasn’t some random attack on somebody sitting at home.”
A woman and a 7-year-old girl were in the apartment during the shooting, but were not injured.
The shooter has not been found, police said.
