At the scene, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said while officers were on the way to respond to a call of a shooting, a car crashed into a parked car. 

Neighbors tried to help the driver, who Spencer said was also shot. The man was taken to Sunrise Trauma where he died.

The investigation showed the man was in a fight moments before driving away, and the suspect shot him while he was in his car, causing the crash.

Officers put out a description of the suspect and he was soon arrested by a nearby patrol officer. The suspect was taken to Clark County Detention Center to be booked on a murder charge, Spencer said.

Police identified the suspect as 36-year-old Seldon Harris. Police said Harris began the fist fight over money owed.

The victim was identified by the Clark County Coroner's Office as Arnel Sylvester Bruce Adams, 36, of Las Vegas. Adams died of a gunshot wound of the chest and his death was ruled a homicide.
