Shalom Amar, a 59-year-old Israeli who lived in Las Vegas, was found dead in the south of the city last Monday, but remained unidentified for several days until last night he was identified by the Clark County Coroner's Office, which at the same time determined that it was a murder.
Earlier, an officer with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department reported that medical crews arriving at the apartment block complex on Monday night found the man on a sidewalk, unconscious, bleeding and with gunshot wounds.
After unsuccessful efforts to revive him, he was pronounced dead at the scene.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated: "The incident is recognized and dealt with. From the moment the news was received, the representative of the Department for Israelis Abroad in the Consular Wing at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles, Revital Denker, have been in contact with the family and are assisting them in their difficult time.
Great efforts are being made to move the coffin to Israel at the beginning of next week."

In April of last year, Yuval Felix Arbel, a 61-year-old Israeli citizen, was murdered in his apartment in the city of Utrecht near Amsterdam in the Netherlands during a robbery.
Three men, aged 52, 41, and 29, are suspected of committing the act and are expected to be charged with aggravated murder, after they violently blackmailed and robbed Arbel, and then used the credit card they stole from him.
Many questions still remain unanswered about the incident and the moves that preceded it, but the prosecution expects to learn more about them.
Until then, and while the three also undergo psychiatric tests, the filing of the indictment is delayed in the meantime.
One of the suspects in the act used to live in the apartment complex and according to the neighbors he knew Arbel and them.
"It feels like we've fallen into a bad movie," they said.
Neighbors heard about the circumstances of the fatal robbery that on Wednesday afternoon the former neighbor contacted Arbel via chat, and he invited himself to drink tea in his apartment.
Arbel let him into the apartment, then the guest robbed him demanding that he hand over his ATM card.
The owner of the restaurant that was robbed and that she knew the murdered man gave her security camera footage to the police and told the policemen - "Give priority to the investigation of Yuval's murder".
