LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3) -- UPDATE: Metro police have released photos of the suspects wanted in connection to a fatal shooting at a convenience store on the 5100 block East Sahara.

The early morning shooting left a man dead and police looking for a suspect.

LVMPD Homicide Investigators have determined the victim and another individual were inside of the store when an altercation developed between them and the suspect.

All three individuals exited the store into the parking lot where the suspect produced a handgun and shot the victim multiple times.

The suspect is described as a light skinned black male adult, between 20 and 25 years of age, standing approximately 5-7foot-7 to 5-foot-8 tall, with a thin build, a corn row hair style, and a tattoo in his left hand.

He was last seen wearing a white shirt with dark colored striping on the collar, sleeves and pockets, and with vertical striping on the button line, baggy Khaki shorts, and black socks and shoes.

Metro officers responded to the shooting just after midnight. They had received calls from people saying they heard shots in the parking of this convenience store.

When they arrived, police found a man with multiple gunshot wounds.

He was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

The Clark County coroner's office identified the victim as Chadrick Wilson, 37, of Las Vegas.

Police say a fight led to the shooting between Wilson and another man. They say they believe it started inside the store and escalated in the parking before the shooting.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department at (702) 828-3521 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555 or visit
