LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- Metro homicide detectives are investigating a homicide in the northeast part of the valley.

The family has identified the man as Eric Ruiz, 25.

A call to dispatch shortly before 8:45 p.m. Saturday informed Metro that there was a dead or injured person outside a residence in the 6900 block of Appleton (Carey & Hollywood), according to Metro Officer Laura Meltzer.

She said the man was transported to UMC Trauma and pronounced dead a short time later of apparent gunshot wounds.

"Homicide detectives have responded and are working the case," Meltzer told News 3. "Dispatch said there was report of possible gunshots in the area about an hour before the call so it's hard to tell if they are related."
