LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Las Vegas Metro police said a woman was shot in the back of the head near the University of Nevada, Las Vegas Sunday evening. 

Police responded to 1050 E. Flamingo Rd. at 8:45 p.m. where they found a woman's body, according to Metro Lt. David Gordon. 

Citing the preliminary investigation, police said the woman was shopping at a nearby Dollar Tree before heading outside to possibly wait for a ride. During that time, a person shot the woman in the back of the head. 

Police do not believe it was a robbery, because her phone, purse and shopping bags were untouched. 

The Clark County Coroner's Office will later release the identity of the victim. 

An investigation is ongoing.
