A man was shot and killed Saturday night in the central Las Vegas Valley.

Police were called around 7:45 p.m. to the 2700 block of East Bonanza Road, near North Eastern Avenue, according to a Metropolitan Police Department news release.

When authorities arrived, they found a man who had been shot multiple times. He was rushed to University Medical Center, where he later died.
