NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — Police and the Clark County coroner are still trying to identify a man whose body was found with a gunshot wound last week in a North Las Vegas drainage ditch.

North Las Vegas police Officer Aaron Patty said Tuesday it wasn’t immediately clear how long the body had been in the area near Azure Avenue and Lamb Boulevard before it was found Thursday afternoon.

Patty says the death is being investigated as an apparent homicide.

He says investigators don’t have a lot to go on so far.
