LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -

A man was shot and killed in while working in a driveway in northeast Las Vegas Saturday night, according to Las Vegas Metro police. 

Police went to the home at 1200 North Lamb Boulevard at 7:20 p.m.

Medical personnel initially responded to the home in a mobile home community to treat the 42-year-old man, identified as Jorge Antonio Romero,  for a medical episode but discovered he had been shot multiple times. Medics called the police.

Romero was taken to University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead a short time later. 

Citing the preliminary investigation, Metro said Romero would work on cars at his home then sell them. At the time of the incident, he was working on a car in the driveway when an unknown suspect or suspects fired multiple shots, several of which struck him. 

Police said they didn't know a motive or what lead to the shooting and a suspect was not found.
