LAS VEGAS (AP) — Metro Police are searching for a person they say punched and killed someone outside the Paris Hotel and Casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

KLAS-TV reports (http://bit.ly/1JtwNmm ) that police found a man with a head injury in the Paris valet area early Sunday.

They say the man was fighting with another man, who punched him, causing the victim to lose consciousness and fall down.

The victim was taken to University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.

Police say they don't have any suspects yet but are looking for two cars that left the area after the fight -- a small, red vehicle driven by a man and a white Chevrolet Impala with a female driver.

The Clark county Coroner's Office will release the identity of the victim later.
