LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Police released Monday video of two people and a moving truck believed to be involved in a deadly robbery case over the weekend in the central Las Vegas Valley.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, a person in a checkered shirt and another person wearing a white shirt and black backpack - both wearing hats - were seen entering the victim's home about 2:07 p.m. on Nov. 5 in the 6300 block of Sandpiper Way, near Torrey Pines Drive and Flamingo Road.

Police said the two men also were seen arriving in the area in a yellow moving truck that officers located around the corner from the victim's home. The truck was reported stolen.

Authorities identified the victim in the case as Thomas Frank Jones IV. The Clark County Coroner's Office ruled his death a homicide as a result of a gunshot wound.

Police said the shooting appeared to be a result of a home invasion that was likely narcotics-related. The two men tied to the incident were last seen walking northbound from the home.

Police are urging anyone who recognizes the men to contact Metro's Homicide Section at 702-828-3521 or at homicide@lvmpd.com. Tips can also be submitted anonymously to Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555, at crimestoppersofnv.com or by texting "CRIMENV" to 274637.
