Las Vegas police are seeking two brothers in connection with a double slaying that happened earlier this month on a residential street near Decatur Boulevard and Sahara Avenue.
Police said Thursday they issued murder warrants for Jose Granados-Dominguez Sr., 43, and Richard Granados, 31, for their roles in the Aug. 10 shootings on Edna Avenue.
Juan Carlos Benitez, 20, and Paul Rodelo, 22, died from injuries sustained in the early-afternoon shootings.
Police had previously identified Richard Granados as Ricardo Granados-Corea and stated his age was 30. Benitez was dead when he was found by police inside his Ford F-150 pickup truck. Rodelo died the next night at University Medical Center.
A third man, Cesar Sosa, 20, also was injured but was treated and later released.
Police found multiple 7.62 mm rifle cartridge casings and .40-caliber casings next to the truck.
Witnesses at the scene reported seeing two men with guns in a residential driveway on the 5000 block of Edna. Police said the shooting stemmed from a dispute with a resident on the street and one of the three shooting victims.
On Tuesday, police released 19-year-old Jose Granados from the Clark County Detention Center. He was facing murder charges in the shootings. Police said he is no longer a suspect and not considered a person of interest.
Homicide Sgt. Rocky Alby said Monday the suspects might have fled to Mexico.
Richard Granados is described by police as 5 feet 9 inches tall, weighing about 185 pounds. Police said he has black hair, brown eyes and a scar on his right arm. Granados-Dominguez is about 5 feet 10 inches tall and weighs about 175 pounds, police said.
