Male shot to death at apartments near Nellis Air Force Base identified

The Clark County coroner Saturday identified the male who died of a homicide near Las Vegas Boulevard North and Nellis Boulevard, near Nellis Air Force Base, on Thursday morning.

Ethan Walker, 17, of Las Vegas was shot and found dead after a fight with a male suspect.

A very “dynamic” call came in about 5 a.m. that a shooting had taken place at the Cohiba Court apartments in the 4300 block of Las Vegas Boulevard North, police spokesman Laura Meltzer said.

The initial call came in as a family disturbance, Capt. Jason Letkiewicz said. Another person was called to help a female in the initial family disturbance.

Several people have been detained in connection with the incident, Meltzer said. She didn’t know whether they were witnesses or suspects.

It is unknown at this time if the case is still under investigation.
