2 suspects identified in Las Vegas teen’s shooting death in April

Police have identified two suspects in the homicide of a Las Vegas teen who was shot and killed while in his vehicle April 24.

Kenneth McGee, 26, and Brandon Gisendaner, 25, have been identified as people of interest in the case, according to Metro.

Benjamin Andre Soley, 17, of Las Vegas, was found dead next to a vehicle in an apartment complex in the 2800 block of Wheelwright Drive, near Vegas Valley Drive and Mountain Vista Street, about 3:45 a.m. on April 24, police said.

A preliminary investigation indicates that Soley was inside his vehicle with three other people when they were approached by three unidentified men, police said.

After a brief conversation, a fight took place involving a firearm inside the vehicle. The fight escalated quickly, and one of the men approached Soley and shot him multiple times. All three men fled the scene, police said.

The homicide appears to be narcotics-related, police said.
