Report: Homicide victim punched suspect in the face 3 times before shooting

Local News

Metro Police arrested a man who they believe is connected to a deadly shooting near Durango and Sunset.

Dishan Lowe, 26, faces the following charges:

  • Murder with use of a deadly weapon 
  • Battery with the use of a deadly weapon resulting in substantial bodily harm 

According to an arrest report released Thursday, Lowe was punched in the face three times by Shane Pecada, 30, before Lowe fired his gun.

The incident happened at the Mosaic Apartment complex located at 6355 S. Riley Street, near Durango and Sunset on Feb. 6, around 5:46 p.m.  According to an arrest report, Lowe got into an argument with Pecada in the parking lot of the complex not once, but twice that night.  The second incident led to the shooting.

The report said the woman Lowe had been dating voluntarily came to Metro Police on Feb. 12 and told them what happened. She was in the car the second time Pecada and Lowe got into an argument, and she said Pecada approached him as he was taking out the trash.

She told police Pecada blocked them in and walked up to the driver’s side of Lowe’s window. The two men started arguing, and that’s when Pecada allegedly punched Lowe in the face three times, the report said.

As the two were arguing, a man in a Dodge Ram who knew Pecada, saw what was happening, so he parked his car to see what was going on and as he walked up Lowe pulled out a gun and shot at them. The guy in the Dodge Ram, whose identity was not released, was shot twice in the arm, but Pecada was killed.

Police said Lowe fired around 6-8 shots at the men. Pecada was struck twice in the chest, the report said.

Right after the shooting Lowe fled the area in his Camaro. When Metro Police officers arrived at the scene, they spoke with multiple witnesses about what occurred.

The two shooting victims were taken to the hospital where Pecada was pronounced dead.  

An arrest warrant was issued for Lowe, and on Feb. 13, he turned himself in to police.  He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center.
