RENO, Nev. — Reno police are investigating a fatal shooting in the city’s midtown neighborhood.

Officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound to the head when they responded to an area east of Wells Avenue and south of the downtown casino district at about 8:30 p.m. Thursday. The man later was pronounced dead.

Police said Friday all parties involved in the shooting have been located and are cooperating with investigators.

No names have been released.

Members of the Regional Gang Unit were on scene but police say they haven’t determined if the shooting was gang-related.


This story corrects an early version that erroneously suggested police were making arrests. They are “investigating” the shooting. There have been no arrests.
