A man killed Thursday night in a park in northern Las Vegas has been identified.
It was Dylan Dubois, 26, of Las Vegas, the Clark County Coroner’s Office said. He died of a gunshot wound to the chest.
North Las Vegas Police said Dubois was shot at around 5:10 p.m. in a parking lot on the east side of Craig Ranch Regional Park, 628 W. Craig Road. He died at the University Medical Center.
“It’s something we never want to see,” police spokesman Aaron Patty told media on the spot.
The shooting did not appear to be random, he said. A police statement Friday morning said there had been an argument between Dubois and another man before he was shot.
There were a few people in the area at the time, Patty said. Police are asking members of the public to contact if they have any information relating to the shooting.
“Sometimes it’s this piece that is that nugget that we needed to get further into the matter and allow us to find the suspect,” said Patty.
Detectives and crime scene analysts were on the scene Thursday evening. A crime scene analyst put yellow evidence markers on the parking lot sidewalk and photographed the area.
A family pushed strollers past the park stage on Thursday night, and children played basketball and skateboarded in other unaffected areas of the approximately 170-acre park.
Anyone with information can call North Las Vegas Police at 702-633-9111 or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 to remain anonymous.
The Clark County Coroner’s Office will release the identity of the deceased after his family is notified.
The homicide marks North Las Vegas Police’s 16th investigation this year.
