LAS VEGAS -- A Las Vegas man is under arrest in connection with a deadly shooting Tuesday, Metro Police announced Friday.
According to police, officers arrested 29-year-old Elias Ramirez-Lopez Thursday on charges of murder with a deadly weapon, attempted murder and battery.
Ramirez-Lopez is accused in the shooting death of 46-year-old Jeffrey Craig Hand. Hand's body was found in an apartment on Lynnwood Avenue near Sahara Avenue and Joe W. Brown Drive at around 10:20 p.m. Tuesday.
A second man was also shot but his injuries were not life-threatening.
Police say Ramirez-Lopez and Hand were in an alleyway with a group of people, when a fight started. The suspect pulled out a gun and shot the two victims, police said.
Community activists are holding an anti-violence rally at 6 p.m. Friday, Sept. 13, at 2575 Van Patten Street, near the area where Hand was shot. Metro officers and community leaders will be there.
Metro Police say it was this time last year that they started seeing a spike in deadly motorcycle crashes. A woman is facing life-threatening injuries after she was involved in a motorcycle crash Sunday evening at Arville and Russell. Vanessa Murphy reports.More>>
