LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Two people have been arrested in connection with the shooting death of a man in the parking lot of an apartment complex in southeast Las Vegas on Tuesday morning.

The shooting happened about 5:30 a.m. at the Sportsman's Royal Manor weekly apartments at the intersection of Tropicana Avenue and Boulder Highway.

Las Vegas Metro police said someone reported a pickup had crashed into a wall at the apartments and that the driver had been shot. They said officers arrived to find 23-year-old Dylan Salazar dead in the truck. He had been shot in his right eyebrow, according to police.

Investigators said they found a large-caliber bullet on the driver's floor board, and a .45-caliber shell casing near the Salazar's truck. They said witnesses reported seeing men dressed in black, hooded sweatshirts, one with a gray stripe, flee the area after the shooting.

According to an arrest report, a witness said he saw a man, later identified as 20-year-old Julio Renteria, of Henderson, jump a wall that separates his yard from the apartment complex and then jump a fence into his neighbor's yard. Police said search dogs found Renteria hiding in a storage shed, along with a black hat, a black, hooded sweatshirt with a gray stripe and a .22-caliber revolver.

According to the report, 21-year-old Adrian McClintock, of Las Vegas, and another man were arrested by officers searching the area after the shooting. The other man told police that McClintock ran up to him, handed him a black, hooded jacket and told him, "Tell them it's not mine."

Both Renteria and McClintock refused to talk to detectives, according to the report.

Detectives said it appeared the pair was trying to steal Salazar's car when the shooting happened.

Renteria and McClintock were each charged with murder with a deadly weapon.

On Wednesday evening, more than 100 people gathered at Lewis Family Park, located near East Sahara Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard, for a vigil for Salazar.
