The Clark County coroner’s office has identified the 33-year-old man killed at a birthday party at The Strat on Friday.
Brandon Tucker of Las Vegas died of gunshot wounds, and his death was ruled a homicide, the coroner’s office said.
Police were called to the hotel around 10 p.m. Friday after a report of gunshots. They found Tucker dead in a hotel room, police said.
Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said early Saturday that investigators believe a birthday party in the room led to an altercation when several shots were fired. The investigation is ongoing.
