A man found dead Tuesday in a central Las Vegas apartment was stabbed, Las Vegas police said Wednesday.

Officers were called to the City View Apartments, 3355 Arville St., around 1:30 p.m. Tuesday in response to an anonymous 911 call reporting a body in one of the rooms, Metropolitan Police Department homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said Tuesday.

The Clark County coroner’s office identified the man as 34-year-old Anthony King. His cause of death was determined to be multiple stab wounds, and the manner was homicide.

Spencer said police believe the apartment was being used as a short-term rental property. No suspect or motive had been identified as of late Wednesday morning, according to a release from the department.

Anyone with information can contact Metro at 702-828-3521 or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
