NORTH LAS VEGAS, Nev. (AP) — Authorities are still trying to identify a suspect in the fatal shooting of a man at a high school in North Las Vegas, Nevada.
North Las Vegas police spokesman Eric Leavitt says authorities are interviewing between 40 and 50 students at Canyon Springs High School as they work to determine who shot the 18-year-old man Tuesday afternoon.
Leavitt says the lockdown at the school has been lifted, and students are being released to their parents.
Fewer than 500 students were still at the school when the shooting happened around 2:40 p.m.
The man was found shot on a baseball field. He was pronounced dead at a hospital.
Leavitt says the school serving 2,700 students is surrounded by homes. He says several hundred people called 911.
