A man whose body was found in a burned car died of a gunshot wound to the head, the Clark County coroner’s office said Wednesday.

On June 22, police found the body of 40-year-old Sean P. Bryan on the 6600 block of Castor Tree Way in a car destroyed by flames. Police have said that the fire’s cause may have been arson.

His manner of death has been ruled a homicide. No arrests have been made, Metropolitan Police Department spokeswoman Laura Meltzer said.

Police said the homicide could be related to a nearby robbery, Meltzer said. The burning vehicle matched the description of a vehicle spotted at a robbery on the 2200 block of North Rainbow Boulevard.

Anyone with information on the homicide or the robbery may call Metro’s homicide section at 702-828-3521 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
