Police arrested a man this week in California in connection with a 2020 homicide at a house party in western Las Vegas.

Charro Kennebruew, 21, faces charges of murder with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and attempted robbery with a deadly weapon.

On Oct. 5 around 12:30 a.m., police responded to a shooting at a house party in the 500 block of Captains Hill Road, near Alta and Durango drives.

Kevin Martinez, 20, of Henderson died at the scene from multiple gunshot wounds, according to the Clark County coroner’s office.

Police said Martinez was attending the house party and was confronted by another man outside. Martinez was shot multiple times before the suspect fled.

Kennebruew was arrested in Southern California and will be extradited to Las Vegas, police said.

Myles Coleman, then 19, was arrested in March 2021 as a suspect in the shooting. He was charged with murder with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery, and attempted robbery with a deadly weapon.

Coleman’s jury trial is scheduled for Aug. 22. He posted $250,000 bail last June, court records show.
