The boyfriend of a 16-year-old girl who was fatally shot at a bus stop last month had an "ongoing feud" with two young men arrested last week in connection with her slaying, a Las Vegas police report obtained Monday said.
Christian Shannon, 18, and 14-year-old Tyrone White were arrested Friday on multiple charges including murder with a deadly weapon, two counts of attempted murder and conspiracy to commit murder.
Police accuse Shannon and White of being involved in the May 15 fatal shooting of Randii Lennette Morrow.
That night, Morrow and her boyfriend were waiting at a bus stop at 2730 E. Bonanza Road, east of Eastern Avenue, about 10:15.
The report said Morrow’s boyfriend, Anthony Wright, 19, had a beef with two men he knew as "TJ" and "Chris."
Detectives later identified the two as Shannon and White.
The report said they began shooting at Wright and Morrow from across the street, on the south side of Bonanza. Wright returned fire.
Morrow was hit and collapsed in an alley from gunshot wounds to her neck and face. She died at University Medical Center.
After the shooting, police said Wright fled into the Colonial Manor apartment complex and told residents to call 911. He was not hurt, but a 10-year-old boy received minor cuts when a stray bullet entered his apartment and shattered a television, police said.
The suspects were seen fleeing the scene of the shooting.
Detectives found a gun, a .22-caliber revolver with five empty cartridge casings, hidden in a backpack in a garbage can next to the bus stop.
Wright fled the state after the shooting because he feared retaliation, according to the report. He told police he shot at the suspects. Wright identified the shooters as Shannon and White. He also told police he threw away the revolver that they later found in the garbage.
The report did not detail the arrests of Shannon and White.
After the shooting, police said the incident might be gang-related.
