Man arrested, suspected of shooting roommate in home near Strip

Police arrested a man Thursday inside a residence near the Strip after his roommate was found dead.

At around 2 a.m., police responded to the 4000 block of West Viking Road, near South Valley View Boulevard and West Flamingo Road, and found a woman suffering from gunshot wounds, according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

She died at the scene, and police arrested the woman’s 28-year-old roommate Virgil Mack. Police said Mack and the woman were arguing prior to the shooting.

Court records show Mack is due in court Friday and faces a charge of open murder.
