LAS VEGAS (KXNT/AP) — The Clark County Coroner’s Office has identified a woman who was fatally shot by her boyfriend while sitting in a car.
Kaji Goode died Saturday and 27-year-old Ivan Cotton has been arrested in connection to the incident. Cotton reported the shooting to police on Saturday night.
Officers arrived in the area of Salernes Street and Shinnecock Hills Avenue just after 6:15 p.m. Saturday, a LVMPD statement reported.
Officers found Cotton standing outside the car with the driver’s side door open. Inside, Goode was sitting in the driver’s seat suffering from multiple gunshot wounds.
She was taken to University Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead a short time later.
Las Vegas homicide detectives determined Cotton and Goode had been in a relationship for about a year before the shooting. Investigators did not disclose what may have led to the shooting.
