Local News

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — New video obtained by 8 News Now shows the arrest inside Bally’s of one of the men accused of shooting and killing two people New Year’s Eve at local parking garages.

On Friday afternoon around 1:30, 66-year-old Clarice Yamaguchi from Hawaii was gunned down outside of her car in the Fashion Show mall parking garage.

A few hours later Metro officers responded to an attempted robbery where a single shot was fired inside the parking garage at the Sahara hotel and casino. No one was hit or injured in this incident.

Then, about an hour later, someone shot and killed a yet unidentified man in the parking garage at Palace Station Hotel.

The new video shows Metro police arresting 18-year-old Jordan Ruby at the food court inside Bally’s. Ruby and 20-year-old Jesani Carter are both in custody, facing charges related to the two homicides.

A local makeup artist who witnessed the arrest in the video explained what was happening just before police swarmed, “They both had trays in their hands it was a brief second I looked at them together, I thought, ‘oh they are just traveling or whatever.'”

The woman doesn’t want to be identified in fear of retaliation but said as soon as the suspects got their food they separated. “I know Vegas has its crazy moments but to have it that close to me … they looked like they were just hanging out like when they were grabbing their food, they didn’t look like they just shot someone and killed them”

A police source confirms both suspects were taken into custody inside Bally’s and the car they were suspected of driving was found in the Bally’s garage.
