 Authorities have identified a 22-year-old Arizona man killed following a foot chase and shootout with police investigating the wounding of another man not far from the Stratosphere tower in Las Vegas.

The Clark County coroner said Wednesday that Efren Trujillo of Buckeye, Arizona, died late Monday of multiple gunshot wounds. 

His death was ruled a homicide, but the coroner's finding doesn't establish fault. 

Police say Trujillo ran after witnesses identified him as the assailant in a shooting that left another man wounded Las Vegas Boulevard, and was killed after firing several shots at officers chasing him through a short-stay apartment complex.

Two officers are on paid leave pending department and district attorney investigations.

Their names are expected to be released Thursday during a media briefing about the shooting.
