LAS VEGAS -- Metro police have made an arrest in the murder of a man found dead Thursday evening.

Metro officers on Thursday at approximately 8:10 p.m. responded to the 1500 block of North Eastern Avenue to investigate reports of a person who had been shot.

Police and medical personnel located a male in the roadway on Owens Avenue suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.

The victim was pronounced deceased at the scene.

The initial investigation by Metro Homicide revealed that the victim was in a verbal altercation with his roommate, who was later identified as Charles Redd Jr. of Las Vegas.
