On April 28, 2007 at approximately 11:54 p.m., L.V.M.P.D. Patrol Officers responded to the intersection of Reno Ave. and Gypsum Reefs Street to investigate a report of a male lying in the roadway. Arriving officers and medical personnel located the victim and determined he was deceased from apparent trauma not related to a traffic accident. The Clark County Coroner’s Office later identified the victim as Byron Harris, a white male adult, 54 years of age, of Las Vegas.
At the time of the attack Harris was wearing a white T-shirt and blue jeans, and was riding a yellow “beach cruiser” style bicycle.
Currently no suspects have been identified in this case, and detectives are seeking the public’s assistance.
