LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

The office of the Clark County Coroner on Thursday identified the victim of a shooting on Tuesday as Jose Martinez, 42, of Las Vegas.

About 10:44 p.m., Metro police responded to a call about a man who had been shot on a sidewalk at North Decatur Boulevard, near Washington Avenue.

Police said it appears Martinez had been walking along the sidewalk when someone in a red sports car pulled up next to him, and the two briefly spoke.

Witnesses said the driver then exited the car and shot Martinez several times, fleeing before officers arrived.

An investigation into the incident is ongoing. Anyone with information is urged to call Metro's Homicide Section at 702-828-3521 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
