Two arrested in Tuesday shooting that killed one, injured two


Two men were arrested after a fatal shooting Tuesday that police said involved two guns and at least 13 bullet casings.

Las Vegas police received reports of gunshots just after 4:30 a.m. from an apartment complex in the 2600 block of Sherwood Street, near Sahara Avenue. Officers found Nathan Rawls dead on the living room floor. According to the police report, Rawls had a gunshot wound in his back and he was unable to be revived by medical personnel.

Two others were wounded in the apartment. Ashley Scott and Laroy Thomas both were shot in their ankles, police said. They were transported to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center.

A fourth person, Marque Hill, was asleep in the apartment at the time of the shooting, police said. Four bullet holes were found near his bed, police said, but none of the bullets hit him.

A nearby resident reported seeing a silver Dodge Magnum driving in the area right after they heard gunshots. A patrol officer located the car and found Matthew Washington Jr. and Martell Moten inside.

According to the report, the officer searched the car and found two guns. The men were taken to Metropolitan Police Department headquarters and interviewed.

Washington and Moten initially denied involvement. Later, each admitted he was in the vehicle but said the other was the shooter, police said.

The two men were booked into Clark County Detention Center. Both face one charge of first-degree murder, three charges of attempted murder and one charge of discharge of a deadly weapon. In addition, Moten faces a parole violation charge.
