LAS VEGAS (AP) — Las Vegas police are investigating a drug-related robbery that has left one man dead.

Authorities said Sunday that officers were called a day earlier to an apartment about reports of a shooting.

Responding officers found the apartment vacant but saw signs that someone may have been injured.

Investigators later linked the scene to a male shooting victim who later died at a hospital.

According to police, the victim and a woman were leaving the apartment when five men approached them.

One of the men pointed a handgun at the victim and a struggle ensued. A bullet hit the victim.

Police say the suspects then fled with some items.

Investigators say the motive appears to involve narcotics.

They did not release the victim’s name.
