LAS VEGAS (AP) — A 23-year-old suspect has been arrested in the fatal shooting of a man in North Las Vegas.

Police say Jeffery Moore has been booked on suspicion of several charges, including murder with a deadly weapon.

The shooting was reported at about 3 a.m. Sunday in the 3100 block of East Tropical Parkway.

Officers responding to the scene found a 32-year-old lying in the street with apparent gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police say the victim apparently was shot while inside a vehicle with acquaintances, including the alleged shooter.

Investigators say they allegedly left the victim in the median of the road and fled the scene.

It’s not clear if Moore has a lawyer or will be appointed a public defender.
