LAS VEGAS (KSNV — Metro says it is seeing a spike in the Las Vegas homicide rate.

There is a 13 percent increase in the homicide numbers for metro's jurisdiction compared with last year.

Tuesday night’s shooting death of a man at a gas station near Tropicana and Valley View brought the number of murders this year in Metro’s jurisdiction to 62. At this time last year, there were 52 homicides.

Metro says it is unclear what is causing the rise in murder rate.
