LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say they’ve arrested a man on suspicion of murder after a body was found in the back of a car earlier this week in a neighborhood east of downtown Las Vegas.

Authorities say 28-year-old Josue Nunez of Las Vegas was found hiding in a nearby shed when investigators responded to a burglary call Monday morning on the 4000 block of Alameda Avenue.

He was later booked on charges of murder, burglary, robbery and kidnapping.

The Clark County coroner’s office has identified the man found dead as 31-year-old Las Vegas resident Steven Roy Blair. Officials say he died of multiple gunshot wounds.
