Las Vegas Homicide Suspect Arrested in Phoenix Area

LAS VEGAS (AP) — Police say the suspect in a fatal shooting at a Las Vegas apartment complex has been found in Arizona.

Police spokeswoman Laura Meltzer says 22-year-old Asa Brown was taken into custody Sunday in the Phoenix suburb of Gilbert.

Brown was identified as a suspect in a shooting last Friday.

Authorities were called after receiving reports a man had been shot.

Officers located a victim with a gunshot wound on a second floor landing.

He was rushed to the hospital but died a short time later.

According to investigators, the victim had gotten into an argument with Brown just before the shooting.

They say Brown fled before officers arrived.

Meltzer did not say what led to locating Brown.

Police had advised he was considered armed and dangerous.
