LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A man found shot to death in a store parking lot in the west Las Vegas Valley had gotten into a scuffle inside an unlicensed after hours club just before the shooting.

Las Vegas Metro police said officers were called to the 4200 block of South Decatur Boulevard at 6:22 a.m. on Sunday. Police located a man with gunshot wounds on the ground of a parking lot. The man was rushed to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

The victim on Monday was identified by the Clark County Coroner's Office as 27-year-old Ezekiel F. Davis. His cause of death was listed as a gunshot wound to the abdomen, and a homicide. 

Citing a preliminary investigation, the victim was inside an unlicensed after hours club located at the back of a clothing store. Davis appeared to have gotten into a scuffle with at least one person before the shooting.

According to police, the business is called Top Force Apparel, which is also a recording studio.

Police did not not immediately identify any suspects. A motive also remained under investigation. 

The incident marked the 123rd homicide in Metro's jurisdiction this year.

Police urged anyone with information on the case to contact Metro's Homicide Section at 702-828-3521 or at homicide@lvmpd.com. Tips can be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
