LAS VEGAS (AP) — A gunman is being sought after a man was found dead in a Las Vegas street following gunshots northwest of downtown.

Las Vegas police Officer Bill Cassell says the man’s body was found about 11 a.m. Thursday as officers arrived on Ellingson Drive. That’s near Simmons Street and Vegas Drive.

Cassell says there may have been an altercation before the shooting.

There was no immediate information about the shooter.

Cassell says there were reports of a vehicle leaving the area after the shooting.
