LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Police believe a man who was found dead in northwest Las Vegas late Monday night may have been shot execution style.

Las Vegas Metro police were called to the area of Coran Lane and Cypress Trail, which is south of Rancho Drive and Lake Mead Boulevard, at about 11:30 p.m.

According to Lt. Dan McGrath, of Metro's Homicide Section, a white man in his 50s was found face down in the street and handcuffed from behind. Police said the man appeared to have suffered a gunshot wound to the head.

"I would call this an execution," said McGrath. "He's handcuffed. Doesn't look like much sign of a struggle."

Police had no immediate information on possible assailants. They also noted no one in the area called them regarding a gunshot.

The identity of the decedent will be released by the Clark County Coroner's Office.
