A man found dead early Wednesday in the patio area of an apartment in the eastern central Las Vegas Valley died of multiple gunshot wounds, the Clark County coroner’s office has determined.
The coroner’s office on Friday ruled the death of 33-year-old Oscar Garcia a homicide. His city and state of residence wasn’t immediately known Friday, the coroner’s office said.
Las Vegas police have said Garcia’s body was found just before 7:15 a.m. on the 3500 block of Folage Drive, near Washington Avenue and Pecos Road, but after speaking to residents in the area, homicide detectives believe the man had been shot at least two hours prior to the discovery.
Court and jail records indicate an arrest had not been made in the case as of Friday afternoon.
