LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

One person is dead following a shooting and four-vehicle crash Thursday night at South Eastern Avenue and Interstate 215.

Police said the crash occurred about 7:30 p.m.

When police investigated, they discovered one of the drivers, a man in his mid-20s, had been shot several times.

Police said the shooting preceded the crash.

The man was taken to Sunrise Hospital Trauma where he was pronounced dead. There was no immediate word about other injuries.

Police said the incident does not appear to be a case of road rage. Rather, they believe it may be connected to a report of gunshots at the Manor Suites, located on South Las Vegas Boulevard near Warm Springs Road.

Metro police, Henderson police and Nevada Highway Patrol troopers responded to the scene.

Police closed southbound Eastern at 215. Northbound Eastern remained open.
