Two men have been arrested on suspicion of murder in the Thursday shooting of a man at a shopping center near UNLV.
Frederick Douglas and Sean Powell, both 32, were each booked on counts of conspiracy to commit murder and open murder. They were booked under a Las Vegas police event number matching that of the fatal shooting, which is believed to be drug-related.
Officers were called about 12:35 p.m. to the 1100 block of East Tropicana Avenue, near Maryland Parkway, the Metropolitan Police Department has said. Officers found an unresponsive man with multiple gunshot wounds.
He was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, where he died, police said Friday.
The Clark County coroner’s office identified the deceased as 26-year-old Taylor Powell.
