Police have identified the man shot and killed inside a home on the city’s west side, more than a month after the slaying took place.

Las Vegas Police say 27-year-old Cruz M. Gallegos died of a single gunshot wound at a home in the 1100 block of Chavez Street on June 15.

Police have also named 49-year-old Arturo Ruiz, of Las Vegas, as a person of interest in the case, though Ruiz is not believed to have killed Gallegos, according to Commander Steve Pacheco of the Las Vegas Police Department.
