Las Vegas Metro police investigated a homicide in northeast Las Vegas on Thursday evening. 

Officers responded to the incident at 7:31 p.m. near Lewis Family Park located near Sahara Avenue and Hollywood Boulevard. 

Citing the preliminary investigation, police said the 16-year-old victim and his friends met with two suspects which led to an argument and then a physical fight. The fight escalated when both the victim and suspect fired their guns. One of the rounds struck the victim in the upper body, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
