A 34-year-old man was killed early Wednesday when an argument escalated into a shooting in a central valley business complex parking lot, according to Las Vegas police.
The man was dead from multiple gunshot wounds by the time officers had arrived about 2:40 a.m. at the complex, 1760 S. Rainbow Blvd. near West Oakey Boulevard, said Metropolitan Police Department homicide Lt. Ray Spencer.
The Clark County coroner’s office on Tuesday afternoon identified the man as 34-year-old Anthony Esposito. His death was ruled a homicide.
Detectives believe Esposito was inside a business in the complex before stepping outside into the parking lot to meet with a man. The two got into an argument and the second man shot him as he walked away, according to Metro.
The shooter, who police said drove off before officers had arrived, remained at large as of about 9 a.m. Metro has not yet released a description of the man or his vehicle.
The fatal shooting marked the 111th homicide in the county this year and the 83rd investigated by Metro, according to records maintained by the Review-Journal.
Anyone with information about the shooting may contact Metro’s homicide section at 702-828-3521 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 to remain anonymous.
