LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A man was killed in a shooting early Thursday morning west of the Strip, Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said.

LVMPD Lt. Jose Hernandez said officers responded to the 4200 block of West Viking Road near Flamingo Road and Arville Street around 2:45 a.m. Oct. 10 to reports of a shooting.

Officers found a man with an apparent gunshot wound when they arrived who was pronounced dead at the scene.

According to Las Vegas police, an investigation determined a woman and the victim were inside the apartment when she heard a knock at the door. The woman opened the door and three suspects wearing hoodies pushed their way into the apartment.
