LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- A 28-year-old Hispanic man is dead after a shooting Saturday afternoon north of the Stratosphere Tower.

Metro police responded to multiple calls at 2 p.m. about the shooting. Arriving patrol officers found a man being tended two by two citizens on New York Avenue just east of Industrial.

He had a wound in his upper torso, according to Lt. Michael Wallace.

Medical staffers transported the victim to UMC Trauma, where he was pronounced dead on arrival.

"A group of suspects were seen fleeing the area after the shooting," Wallace said. "The descriptions were vague and varied so homicide detectives don't have much solid to work with."
