Dispute Between Women Leaves One Dead
An early morning homicide leaves one woman dead and another under arrest.
Metro Police responded to a call at the Canyon Point Apartments on East Harmon (east of Boulder Highway near the Eastside Cannery) and found a woman in her 20’s dead in one of the apartments. Police later arrested another woman in her 20’s at an apartment on Elizabeth Avenue, near Maryland Parkway in the area of UNLV.
Metro Captain Tom Roberts says the initial call led officers to both locations. Officers are not confirming the cause of death, but say it was not a shooting. Right now Metro Homicide and CSI detectives remain at the scene conducting investigation and interviewing witnesses. Capt. Roberts could not confirm if there are any more suspects because the investigation is still in its early stages.
