Family of slain man holds vigil, hopes to find his killer


The community gathered on Thursday to honor the life of a North Las Vegas man. 

24-year-old Maurice Williams died after being shot on Monday night in the area of Civic Center Drive and Cheyenne Avenue.

During a vigil, his family told 8 News NOW they won’t rest until police find the person who killed him. 

Pastor Eddie Jones Junior organized the event to find his nephew’s killer and fight to prevent similar crimes. 

“It’s not fair this person is walking around with a weapon taking away human life with no consequences and we’re fed up with it,” Jones said.  

Anyone with information is asked to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at (702) 633-9111.
