LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- The Clark County Coroner's Office has identified a man killed Tuesday in the east Las Vegas Valley.

Just before 11 p.m. March 26, a caller reported their friend had been shot, according to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Police responded to the scene in the neighborhood northeast of East Tropicana Avenue and South Nellis Boulevard.

The victim, identified Thursday as Randy Griffin, 31, was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead, Metro said. The coroner determined the cause of death was a gunshot wound to the torso, and has ruled death a homicide. 

Another man was at the scene with Griffin during the shooting, but wasn't injured, police said.
