LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) - A man was found dead in a North Las Vegas home Tuesday afternoon.

NLVPD Sgt. Jeff Wall said officers were called to a home in the 900 block of Stanley Avenue, near Owens Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard North, around 3 p.m. June 21 for a welfare check.

When police arrived, they found a 53-year-old man dead inside the home. The Clark County Coroner’s Office identified the victim as Ricardo Ramirez-Rios. Ramirez-Rios died from a gunshot wound to the head/neck and his death was ruled a homicide.

No other victims were located and no suspects are in custody, NLVPD said.

Daniel Hernandez, the victim’s nephew, said he was a hard working man.

“My uncle was a generous man, I mean, he liked to gamble a lot, he used to be wise, noble to everybody,” Hernandez said.

Wall said detectives are investigating the incident as a homicide and the investigation is ongoing.
