A man died early Sunday at a Las Vegas apartment complex after police found him suffering from what they described as “an apparent gunshot wound.”

He was Timothy Sheafer, 50, of Las Vegas. He died of gunshot wounds, and his death was ruled a homicide, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.

Las Vegas police said they received a report of “an unresponsive male” at about 1:50 a.m. Sunday and responded to an enclosed patio at the complex, located in the 6400 block of Casada Way, near Charleston and Jones boulevards.

“Arriving medical personnel pronounced the victim deceased at the scene,” police said in a statement Monday.

Homicide detectives responded and took over the investigation. Police said no suspect had been identified.
