LAS VEGAS, USA (AP) — Las Vegas police chasing a car that appeared to be driving itself say they found a man shot dead inside.

An officer says he saw the Nissan Maxima run a red light about 6 pm Sunday near Martin Luther King and Lake Mead boulevards, but it didn't look like anyone was in the driver's seat.

Authorities say the vehicle jumped a median and veered into a landscaped area near a church before it turned back into oncoming traffic and hit another vehicle.

Officers found a man with multiple gunshot wounds slouched in the seat. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Police tell the Las Vegas Review-Journal the man apparently had his foot on the accelerator after he was shot. Detectives are looking for who's responsible for the killing.
