Suspicious death of Las Vegas man ruled a suicide

The suspicious death of a Las Vegas man Saturday in the southwest valley has been ruled a suicide by the Clark County coroner.

Metropolitan Police Department homicide detectives were called about 11:35 a.m. to investigate reports of a man who had shot himself inside a home on the 5000 block of Tioga Pass Avenue, near Decatur Boulevard and Windmill Lane, Lt. Nate Chio said.

The Clark County coroner saw something at the scene that prompted Metro’s homicide unit to investigate. Chio said Saturday he did not know what the suspicious circumstances were, but the coroner later determined the man’s cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds.
