LAS VEGAS—At approximately 7:33 p.m. on February 10, 2016 LVMPD patrol officers were dispatched to a residence located in the 4700 block of Sweeping Glen Street to investigate multiple reports of a gunshot heard and a man down in the driveway of a house. Arriving officers located a man lying in the driveway suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.
The man was pronounced deceased at the scene by medical personnel. Also outside of the residence was a woman who was detained in connection with the investigation. The preliminary investigation initiated by the LVMPD Homicide Section indicated the woman, later identified as 54-year-old Catherine Brewington, lived at the home with the male victim and they were involved in a dating relationship. It appeared there had been a physical confrontation between the two inside of the residence, and a verbal argument occurred in the driveway just prior to the shot being fired.
As a result of the investigation, Catherine Brewington was arrested and transported to the Clark County Detention Center where she faces one count of Murder with a Deadly Weapon. A booking photo of Brewington accompanies this release. This is the 17th homicide investigated by the LVMPD Homicide Section in 2016. The identity of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
