LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Las Vegas police said Tuesday they have arrested the suspect accused of shooting and killing a 28-year-old man inside his car.

The Clark County Coroner identified Francisco Adrian Mares, 28, as the man found shot to death in a vehicle Saturday evening. His death was ruled a homicide, caused by gunshot wounds.

Police identified the suspect as Brian Diego Terrazas, 27, and arrested him on Monday. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on one count of open murder.

Police responded to a single-vehicle crash just before 5 p.m. on July 31 in the 1600 block of East Lane, near Vegas and Rancho drives.

Officers located the driver, Mares, who was found unresponsive and suffering from a gunshot wound. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
