Man killed in shooting after park brawl identified

A man killed in a shooting that left three others wounded early Saturday morning has been identified by the Clark County coroner’s office.

Geovany Garcia, 19, of Las Vegas, died from multiple gunshot wounds, the coroner’s office said Monday.

Garcia’s body was found in a vehicle near the intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Desert Inn Road, about 2:40 a.m., Las Vegas police said.

Police later found out that Garcia and three other people had been shot as they dispersed during a brawl at a park in the 5000 block of Hollywood. The other three people went to area hospitals on their own and were expected to survive.

Police initially said Garcia was a boy.

No arrests have been announced.
