By the end of June, police throughout the valley had responded to a total 103 homicides, up from 64 during the first six months of 2015. A Las Vegas Review-Journal analysis of those deaths showed that most victims were under the age of 40 and most suspects were under 30.
Medical examiners at the Clark County coroner’s office investigated 109 homicides between Jan. 1 and June 30, compared with 71 homicides during the same period last year. And it’s not just homicides that have increased; all deaths have.
The Clark County coroner’s office has identified a 19-year-old who died after an accidental shooting in the central valley Thursday night.
