Police said they are investigating a deadly shooting in North Las Vegas that started as an argument in a parking lot.

Officers responded to a shooting call in the 3000 block of Las Vegas Boulevard North, near Pecos Road, at about 11:45 p.m. Saturday.

Police said they located a 31-year-old man, identified by family members as Mohammad Nestor Robinson, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds at the scene.

Nestor Robinson was transported to University Medical Center in critical condition, but succumbed to his injuries Sunday morning.

A preliminary investigation indicates there was an argument in the parking lot of a business that escalated into gunfire, according to the North Las Vegas Police Department.

Family members said Nestor Robinson was on his lunch break at a McDonald's when the deadly incident happened. Katra Nestor, Nestor Robinson's mother said her son's friend witnessed the deadly shooting and told her what happened. 

"He was coming into McDonald's and some female was going out. The door closed before she could get out and what happened is she said a few choice words to him," Nestor said. 

Nestor said the woman's boyfriend went looking for Nestor Robinson, an argument took place, and he was shot. 

Nestor Robinson's girlfriend and mother of his children said he was the type of person to shy away from conflict. 

"Mohammad was always the type of person to walk away from problems. Even when we would fight he would just walk away because he wasn't the type of person to argue," the girlfriend said. 

Police said nobody is in custody in connection to the shooting.

Nestor had a message for the person responsible, "I forgive you because God said forgive. If you're not caught, you will have to live with this for the rest of your life."

Police have not released the description of the person or people responsible. The investigation on the deadly shooting is ongoing, police said.
