NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — North Las Vegas police are looking for a suspect in the fatal shooting of a teenager over the weekend.

The victim took off but lost control of his pickup and crashed into a tree.

The driver of the sedan fled the scene.

The victim has not been identified. Anyone with information should contact
