Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Residents at an apartment complex near Pecos and Lake Mead Parkway are living in fear after their neighbor was shot multiple times through his window.

Early Friday morning, police say they received several calls from people who heard gunshots in the area.  After arriving they found a man dead on the floor of his apartment.

Homicide detectives believe the victim heard a noise from the back of his apartment and went to check it out, when he was shot multiple times through the window.

“This is not a good neighborhood,” said resident, Donald Tate.  “I hear gunshots at night.”

Residents say they still feel vulnerable despite living across from a police station.
 “It's still dangerous, you think you'd be safe, but you're not,” said Allon Reese.

Police have only described the victim as a black adult male.  Officers say it will be up to the coroner's office to identify the man and determine a cause of death.
Anyone with information about this homicide is asked to call Crimestoppers.
