LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A judge set bail at $100,000 for the 18-year-old accused in the shooting of a school campus monitor at Ed Von Tobel Middle School. Jessie Rios, 18, made his initial appearance in Las Vegas Justice Court Wednesday morning.
Rios is facing 24 felony charges including attempted murder and battery with a deadly weapon. Police believe he may have shot as many as 19 shots in the direction of the school which is near Pecos Road and Carey Avenue.
One of those bullets struck and wounded a campus security monitor outside the school around 12:30 p.m. Monday. He is expected to recover.
According to what sources told the 8 News Now Investigators, the bullets may have been fired in an unrelated incident near the school, and the campus monitor was struck by a stray bullet.
Rios remains in custody at the Clark County Detention Center. His next court date is May 15.
