A man was fatally stabbed late Friday outside a house party in North Las Vegas.
Just before midnight, North Las Vegas police were called to the 3500 block of Stanley Avenue, North Pecos Road and East Owens Avenue, to investigate reports of a stabbing. When they arrived, officers found a 21-year-old man lying in the street with an apparent stab wound, police said.
He was taken University Medical Center, where he died.
Police said the man was at a house party on that block, and that there was “a lot of yelling” heard by witnesses just before the stabbing.
The motive remained unclear Saturday morning, but investigators do not believe the killing was a random act of violence, police said.
The Clark County coroner’s office will identify the man after his family has been notified of his death, which was the 203rd homicide in Clark County this year and the 34th investigated by North Las Vegas police, according to records maintained by the Review-Journal.
Detectives are asking for the public’s help in this case. Anyone with information may call the North Las Vegas Police Department at 702-633-9111 or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
