Officers responded to a call about a possible shooting at about 3:45 a.m. at a nightclub in the 3300 block of East Lake Mead Boulevard, the North Las Vegas Police Department said.
Arriving officers located a man suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. He was transported in critical condition to University Medical Center, where he died from his injuries later Saturday.
