A man was killed after a shooting at a park in central Las Vegas on Monday night.

Lt. Jason Johansson said that the slaying happened at Charlie Frias Park at 8:51 p.m. Police responded to the park’s main parking lot for a report of shots fired. In the parking lot, officers located a man who was suffering from a gunshot wound.

The man, who was identified Tuesday by the Clark County coroner’s office as James Edgar May, 30, died at the scene from gunshot wounds of the neck and chest.

Investigators believe the man was in a fight with another man in the parking lot when he was shot. Johansson said the shooter ran off.
