Police looking for man in connection with shooting death

Las Vegas police are looking for a man they say fatally shot another man in the head at a west valley home Thursday afternoon.

Fuyan Liao, 56, is suspected of firing a gun at two men, killing one, after an altercation inside the residence at 7843 Nookfield Drive, near Flamingo Road and Buffalo Drive, Metro said in a news release Friday.

The second victim “was able to escape the area without being hit by gunfire.”

The man who was shot was taken to University Medical Center’s trauma unit, where he later died. He will be identified by the Clark County coroner’s office.

Liao is described as Asian. He stands 5-feet-6-inches tall and weighs 152 pounds, the release said. He was last seen driving a white 2009 Infiniti SUV with Nevada license place 712ATZ.
