Fatal shooting

A man died Thursday afternoon after a possibly drug-related shooting in the parking lot of a business in northwest Las Vegas.

The shooting happened at about 1 p.m. in the parking lot of a CVS pharmacy, 7190 West Craig Road, at the intersection of Tenaya Way.

The man, who was wounded after several shots were fired, died while trying to leave the scene in his vehicle. He drove off, struck a tree and flipped his car, police said.

Authorities are looking for a man between 20 and 25 years old driving an orange sedan with a bad paint job, police said. He was described as black, between 5-foot-8 and 5-foot-10 inches tall.
