VIDEO: VEGAS SHOOTER LINKED TO RECENT 9 VIOLENT ROBBERIES IN THE VALLEY – SUSPECT IS YOUNG HISPANIC WITH PONYTAIL, DRIVES white ’90s Mercury Grand Marquis
- The robber is described as a thin Hispanic man in his late 20s or early 30s, about 150 pounds and about 5 feet 8 inches tall. He also has a ponytail and prescription glasses…driving a middle-to-late ’90s Mercury Grand Marquis.
( Review Journal ) A man wanted since the start of the year for brazenly robbing several east valley businesses at gunpoint is the same man wanted for killing a man and injuring a waitress Saturday at an east valley bar, Las Vegas police said Monday.
“We need your help,” Metropolitan Police Department homicide Lt. Dan McGrath said during a media briefing Monday. “We have an escalation of violence that is a serious concern for everyone in the community. We have concerns that he could commit a robbery tonight. He is armed, he is dangerous, and he has a propensity for violence. We need to get him off the street.”
Police believe the same man committed all the crimes because of surveillance footage, physical evidence and the firearm used. In at least two of the robberies, the suspect fired at least one round.
“Unfortunately for us, our fears about this person’s violence continuing came to fruition this weekend,” Metro robbery Lt. Jack Clements told reporters Monday.
The Saturday morning homicide at the OK Corral bar, 1602 N. Nellis Blvd., was not a robbery, police said. A man originally entered the bar about 6 a.m. with a woman and danced for about an hour, surveillance footage shows.
