LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Police released photos of two men identified as persons of interest in a deadly shooting that took place last Wednesday in northwest Las Vegas.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, the men were seen in a convenience store near Rancho Drive and Michael Way just moments before the July 2 slaying.

Police said the incident happened about 9:38 p.m. in the 3300 block of N. Michael Way. Citing a preliminary investigation, police said three men were confronted by two others at the entrance of an apartment complex.

A verbal altercation took place between the men before shots rang out, according to Metro. Two of the men fled on foot while the other two fled in a dark-colored, four-door sedan.

Authorities said victim Robert Matthews, 27, was rushed to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Detectives described one of the persons of interest as a black man in his 20s, about 5'8" to 5'10" tall with a medium build and muscular arms. He was last seen wearing a grey tank top with a red and white symbol and white lettering, dark-colored shorts and white tennis shoes.

The other person of interest was described as a black man in his 20s, about 5'8" to 5'10" tall with a medium build. Police said the man was last seen wearing a black tank top with a red symbol and white writing, long white shorts, white socks and black sandals.

Police also described the vehicle the two were seen in as a possible Chevrolet Monte Carlo with a rear spoiler and a sunroof.

Police urged anyone with information on the two men to contact Metro's Homicide Section at 702-828-3521 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
