I’m shocked! Did his victim turn out to be a real person?

(Science Fiction, Fredric Brown(?). A man kills someone and then everyone else forgets the person existed. After killing a number of people, he believes that he is the only real person. Eventually kills someone for trivial reasons and is amazed when he’s arrested “She was real?” Investigator interviews him in jail, slips out to call the bureau. They cancel his card. Investigator goes back, shoots guy. No one remembers.)

Not Phoenix, I think it was Las Vegas, visiting family as a kid. I walked across a parking lot that was so hot it melted the glue in my shoes, the soles fell right off onto the blacktop.
They were cheap shoes, but still…I agree with Peggy!
