Detectives had few leads to follow Tuesday in the homicide investigation of two slain roommates found in their apartment earlier this week on Decatur Boulevard near Flamingo Road, a Las Vegas police official said.
Homicide Lt. Lew Roberts said police have not identified a motive or suspects in the shooting deaths of two men found Monday at the Polo Club apartments, 4201 S. Decatur Blvd.
Roberts said police also haven’t located any witnesses.
The Clark County coroner’s office did not release the identity of the victims Tuesday.
Roberts said the victims might have been dead for up to 24 hours before their bodies were discovered. A friend of the roommates went to the apartment to check on their welfare and called police, Roberts said.
The apartment where the bodies were found is marked with a sticker warning that said the property is not to be entered or touched because it is under police surveillance.
Neighbors said detectives were at the complex Tuesday searching for clues.
Several neighbors said they had not heard anything suspicious in the past few days and were startled by the slayings. Neighbors also said they didn’t know the men who lived at the apartment.
“I haven’t seen or heard anything unusual. That’s why this is sad and shocking,” said Tasha Jones, who noted that she had been at her apartment regularly for three consecutive days and had not heard gunshots.
“If there was a shooting, people would have heard, dogs would have been barking,” she said.
Anyone with information on the shootings is urged to call the Las Vegas police Homicide Section at 828-3521 or Crime Stoppers at 385-5555.
