Help us solve a murder! One week after a senseless murder, investigators are still seeking to identify a pair of killers. Today, the victim's daughter was among those pleading for the public's assistance in finding the two young males responsible for the shooting at a check cashing business on North Jones. Here are the limited details provided in our initial press release: On January 11, 2018 at approximately 9:15 a.m. LVMPD patrol officers were dispatched to a business located at 1411 North Jones Boulevard to investigate a report of a woman shot. Arriving officers located an adult female inside of the business suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. The victim was transported to UMC Trauma where she was later pronounced deceased. The investigation initiated by the LVMPD Homicide Section indicated the victim was an employee of the business and was in the process of opening for the day. It is believed that at least one suspect entered the building behind the employee and possibly attempted to rob her. During the encounter the employee was shot. Two possible suspects were seen running from the business but could only be described as black males wearing dark clothing. They were last seen running eastbound across N. Jones Blvd. and into a residential neighborhood. The identity of the victim, as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office. As of this release, the motive is believed to be robbery and the suspects remain unidentified. Anyone with any information about this incident, or anyone with any surveillance video of the possible suspects, is urged to contact the LVMPD Homicide Section by phone at 702-828-3521, or by email at homicide@lvmpd.com.
