Las Vegas police investigate possible homicide in central valley

The Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a possible homicide after a Las Vegas man came home to find his roommate dead.

Police were dispatched about 8:30 p.m. Thursday to an apartment complex on the 3600 block of Ala Drive to investigate reports of a man who found his roommate unresponsive in their apartment. Police found the man on the floor; he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Evidence at the scene suggested the death was not natural, police said.

Neighbors said they witnessed arguing and a struggle between the man and an unknown amount of people earlier in the evening.

No suspects or a motive for the homicide have been identified.

The Clark County coroner will release the victim’s identity and cause and manner of death.

Anyone with information about the incident may call Metro’s homicide section at 702-828-3521.
