LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

Police are investigating a deadly shooting in a central Las Vegas neighborhood early Sunday morning.

Metro said they received multiple emergency calls from witnesses that a shooting took place inside an apartment complex on 2600 Sherwood Street, between Sahara and Karen Avenues, just after 6 a.m.

Arriving officers located a Hispanic man shot multiple times and police said medical personnel pronounced him deceased at the scene.

Metro Homicide Lt. Dan McGrath said the victim was shot at least 10 times and the gunman was last seen running through the complex.

Police are working with several witnesses who were home when the gunshots rang out, according to authorities, and initial reports indicate the incident may have been narcotics related.

McGrath said detectives believe the suspect is still in the area and described him only as a short Hispanic male.

Authorities have the incident under investigation and the name of the man deceased will be released by the Clark County Coroner's Office once the family has been notified. 

Police urge the public to contact the LVMPD Homicide Section at 702-828-3521 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 with any information leading to the arrest of the suspect.
