North Las Vegas detectives arrested two teens Tuesday in connection with two separate killings, the police department said in a Wednesday statement.

Hector Paramo-Cervantes, 19, was arrested in connection with the fatal shooting of Kristopher Cisneros, 17. Cisneros was found on May 29 on the 2100 block of Las Vegas Boulevard North, North Las Vegas police said at the time.

The Clark County coroner’s office said Cisneros died the next day from a gunshot wound to the chest.

Details on how Paramo-Cervantes was tied to the killing were not immediately available.

In the second killing, which North Las Vegas police did not disclose until Wednesday, a 20-year-old was shot Friday and died Sunday.

The man was shot multiple times and found around 8:45 p.m. on Aug. 11 inside a business on the 5700 block of Losee Road.

He was identified by the Clark County coroner’s office as Jamelvin Webb. The coroner’s office had not determined his cause and manner of death as of Wednesday.

The suspected shooter ran off, but police said Aulijah Muhamad-Leavelle, 18, was arrested Tuesday at a Las Vegas home.

The man who was shot was not immediately identified by the coroner’s office.

Jail records for the men had not been posted as of Wednesday morning, but police said they were both booked into the North Las Vegas Community Correctional Center on suspicion of murder.
