An 18-year-old was arrested Monday in connection with a fatal shooting last week in east Las Vegas.
Alonzo Brown was booked on one count of murder and two counts of carrying a concealed weapon without a permit, according to jail records.
Brown was arrested in the death of Josue Chaparro-Montalvo, 36, who was shot early Thursday near East Tropicana Avenue and Boulder Highway, according to a statement from the Metropolitan Police Department.
Investigators believe Brown and Chaparro-Montalvo were in a fight when Brown opened fire and ran off.
It was unclear Tuesday how Brown was identified as a suspect.
