The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a shooting that took place late Sunday night near Alexander and Lamb.
According to witnesses, police said a man was either hanging on or getting dragged by a black truck headed west on Alexander.
A family passing by tried to alert the truck as they witnessed the man asking for help. The truck stopped, and the man with road burn gained access to the back of the family’s SUV, where two teens and a baby where in the car.
The father, who had a gun, started to hit the man on the head, asking him to leave. After he unsuccessfully removed the man from the SUV, the father fired shots at the man. The man was rushed to the hospital, where he later died.
Police are calling the father a Good Samaritan. They do not believe he will be facing charges at this point. However, police would like to talk to the person driving the black truck. Police said it was a full-size truck with road lights on the cab.
The shooting took place just before 11 p.m. on New Year's Eve.
The identity of the shooter has not been released.
