Coroner releases ID of man shot to death in North Las Vegas

The Clark County coroner’s office on Tuesday identified the man who died in a shooting in the Aliante master-planned community in North Las Vegas.

He was Robert Brown Jr., 30, from North Las Vegas, the coroner’s office said Tuesday. Police initially said Brown was 22 years old.

Brown died of a gunshot wound to the right chest, the coroner’s office said; his death was determined a homicide.

At 8:15 p.m. Monday, police responded to reports of a shooting at the intersection of Deer Springs and Aviary ways, near Aviary Park. Brown was found in the intersection with a gunshot wound to the upper body, North Las Vegas police spokesman Gary Nellis said.

Someone in a white pickup truck fired a weapon after an altercation with Brown, police said. It is unclear whether the shooter knew the victim, Nellis said.

Police did not identify a suspect in a Tuesday statement.
