LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities have identified a 40-year-old man who was fatally shot at a gas station about a mile west of the Las Vegas Strip.

Clark County coroner's officials say Santiago Spicer Flanders died at University Medical Center after being shot around 11 p.m. Tuesday.

Las Vegas police say they found the man lying in the traffic lanes of West Tropicana Avenue when they arrived at the scene.

Investigators say Flanders had parked his vehicle at the gas pumps and stayed there for about 30 minutes. Police say he eventually got out and was standing nearby when he was struck by gunfire.

Authorities say two suspects got into a tan, four-door sedan and fled.

Police said Wednesday afternoon that they hadn't identified suspects and didn't have a motive.
