The Clark County coroner's office identified a 31-year-old man shot and killed in the first homicide police have investigated this year in the Las Vegas Valley.

Lazareo Jones, 31, was fatally shot Friday during a New Year's Eve party, the North Las Vegas Police Department said. The coroner's office ruled his death a homicide from gunshot wounds.

Officers were called about 4:15 a.m. Friday to the 3400 block of North Bruce Street, near Losee Road and Cheyenne Avenue, after multiple people reported a shooting, police said. When officers arrived, they found Jones suffering from at least two gunshot wounds.

Jones was taken to University Medical Center, where he died.

Detectives believe that during the party, Jones and another man got into a fight over a gun. A third person then walked up to them and shot Jones, police said.

It was not clear Tuesday if anyone had been arrested in connection with Jones' death. The shooting marked the first homicide investigated by law enforcement in Clark County in 2021, according to records maintained by the Review-Journal.
