Coroner IDs man fatally shot in central Las Vegas

The Clark County coroner’s office has identified a man who was shot on Monday, the first of three men who were killed that day.

Christopher Brown, 42, of Las Vegas, died at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center from multiple gunshot wounds, the coroner’s office ruled.

Brown was found near East Sahara Avenue and Van Patten Street around 2:15 a.m. after police were alerted by ShotSpotter technology to gunshots in the area, Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Ray Spencer said at the time.

Spencer said at the time that there were no witnesses to the shooting, but on Wednesday he said investigators believe they have identified a suspect.

An hour after Brown was shot, Kashif Brown, 24, was fatally shot at a gas station on the corner of Valley View and Alta Drive.

Around 11 p.m. Monday night, homicide detectives were investigating the death of Jourell Ng, 36, but it remained unclear Wednesday whether his death was being classified as a homicide.

No arrests have been made in connection with any of the deaths.
