Police believe a man was shot to death inside a car before being left at a North Las Vegas median Sunday morning.

According to North Las Vegas police, Jeffery Moore, 23, was arrested as a suspect in the death of a 32-year-old man, whose body was found in the 3100 block of East Tropical Parkway at about 3 a.m. on Sunday.

Citing a preliminary investigation, police said the victim, who was identified by the Clark County Coroner's Office as Willie R. Parker,  was in a vehicle with acquaintances and the suspect when he was shot. Parker was left on a median and his acquaintances did not remain at the scene.
