LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Metro police have arrested the driver of a vehicle who sped away from the fatal drive-by shooting of a woman early Saturday morning in the northeast valley.

Patrol officers responding to a call for a shooting in the 3700 block of Melbourne Circle at about 5 a.m. found a woman with a gunshot wound. Officers rendered aid until medical personnel arrived, but she died at the scene, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police said.

Patrol units observed a “possible suspect vehicle leaving the area at a high rate of speed,” police said, and a pursuit ensued.

The driver was able to evade officers; an preliminary investigation by the department’s homicide section indicates a suspect fired from a vehicle when the victim was shot.

According to Clark County Detention Center records, 23-year-old Hector Camacho was taken into custody on Sunday. He’s facing charges of murder and disobeying a police officer.

Identification of the victim is pending, police said.
