Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Las Vegas police are investigating a scene where a body was found.

On July 30 10:50 p.m., patrol officers responded to the northeast corner of Eastern Avenue and Fremont Street to investigate reports of a man shot.

Arriving officers discovered 36-year-old Manuel Guadalupe Acosta lying near the sidewalk with a gunshot wound to the chest.

Detectives have determined Acosta was approached by three males when he was shot. The suspects then fled the scene prior to officers' arrival.

The suspects can only be described as males, approximately 20 years of age. One of the suspects was last seen riding away on a bicycle.

No suspects have been identified.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
