Victims Identified in Double Killing at Apartments

Posted: Updated:

LAS VEGAS -- Three people are under arrest in connection with a shooting that left two people dead and another man hurt. 

The shooting happened Tuesday night at an apartment on East Harmon Avenue near Paradise Road just after 8 p.m.

Police arrested Brandon Range, 23, of Las Vegas, Maurice Sims, 22, of Las Vegas and Sasha Williams, 20, or Las Vegas in connection with the crime.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified Friday the deceased shooting victims as Anthony P. Anderson, 27, of Las Vegas and Evan Tolbert, 25.

According to an arrest report from Metro Police, the surviving victim ran to the rental office to report that he had been shot. When officers arrived at the scene, they found two people shot to death inside the apartment.

The arrest report states that the victims knew at least one of the suspects, 21-year-old Sasha Williams.

The suspects forced their way into the apartment, beat the victims and demanded they gather valuables inside the apartment, police said. During the robbery, one of the victims attacked the suspects.

At that point, the survivor, who was shot in the buttocks, ran from the apartment. He told police that he heard four gun shots as he ran.
