LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police have arrested a man they believe killed a person who was sleeping in his car outside a North Las Vegas strip club.

Authorities say 28-year-old Josue (ho-SWAY’) Nunez of Las Vegas was found hiding in a shed Monday morning, shortly after investigators responding to the 4000 block of Alameda Avenue found a body in the back of a car.

Nunez was later booked on charges of murder, burglary, robbery and kidnapping.

Witnesses tell police Nunez had been drinking and was upset he was kicked out of the Chicas Bonitas strip club.

Authorities say it appears that while Nunez was lingering outside the club, he found 31-year-old Las Vegas resident Steven Roy Blair sleeping, and robbed him and fatally shot him before driving him and his vehicle away.
