Detectives looking for additional victims of robbery suspects


Las Vegas police believe there could be more victims of two robbery suspects.

Demonte Walter and Tyresse Jackson, both 18, are facing charges of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit murder with a deadly weapon, robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a deadly weapon, aiming a gun at a person, and discharging a gun into an occupied structure.

According to Metro Police, the two suspects set up a meeting on Nov. 11 with a father and teenaged son who had items listed for sale online. 

The suspects requested that the group meet at a parking lot in apartment complex in the 3800 block of S. Nellis Blvd.

During the transaction, one of the suspects pulled a gun and demanded the property. As the adult victim ran away, the suspect fired several shots, but missed him, police said. The teenaged son, who was still in the car, got out of the car and also ran. The suspect also fired at him and missed. One of the rounds entered an apartment where there was a teen, but that person was not injured, according to police.

Both suspects are now in custody.

Police are asking anyone with information on this incident or if they know of another incident involving these two suspects to contact Metro Southeast Area Command at (702) 828-8242. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555 or online at
