Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- A man is dead after being shot near North Decatur Boulevard and West Washington Avenue on Tuesday night.

Police said calls were placed to 911 just before 11 p.m. When they arrived, they found a Hispanic male who had been shot on the sidewalk. 

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said they believe the man was walking north alongside of Decatur when a car that was headed south stopped in the middle of the street.

Contact was made between the man on the sidewalk and someone in the car. And then, someone got out of the car and shot the man who had been walking.

The car, which has been described as a red sports-type car, then disappeared.

At this time, police have not released information on a motive and no suspects have been arrested.

The Clark County coroner will release the name and age of the deceased after relatives have been notified.

Action News will update this story as more information becomes available.
