LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A fatal shooting in northeast Las Vegas left an 18-year-old man dead late Friday night, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan police.

The Clark County Coroner's office identified him as Aaron Rodriguez. He died of multiple gunshot wounds. His death was ruled a homicide. 

Lt. Ray Spencer with Metro Homicide said officers were called to the area of North Pecos Road and Haddock Avenue, just north of East Carey Avenue, at around 11:30 p.m. 

Witnesses told police they heard fighting outside, followed by multiple gunshots, Spencer said. Witnesses found an 18-year-old Hispanic man lying in the road and two men leaving the scene in an unknown vehicle.

According to Spencer, neighbors tried to administer aid before the victim was taken to University Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.
