A man was fatally shot Monday afternoon in northeast Las Vegas.

Officers were called about 2:40 p.m. after a report of gunshots on the 6900 block of Mendon Lane, a residential area near East Lake Mead Boulevard and Los Feliz Street, according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Richard Meyers.

Arriving officers discovered a man outside who had been shot multiple times, Meyers said. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

Meyers said there was no description available of the shooter, and investigators had not yet determined a motive behind the killing.

The Clark County coroner’s office will identify the man killed once relatives have been notified.
