Man wounded in central Las Vegas shooting dies at hospital

Updated October 30, 2018 - 5:45 pm

A man who was in critical condition after a shooting last week in the central valley died Monday, Las Vegas police said.

Police were called to a shooting at a home on the 6000 block of Conroe Court, near Jones Boulevard and Russell Road, about 8:15 a.m. Saturday. Police found a man lying in the road with a gunshot wound to the head, police said Tuesday. He was taken to University Medical Center in “extremely critical condition” on Saturday, Metropolitan Police Department homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said.

The man died at the hospital on Monday, police said.

Noel Shakespeare, 27, was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Saturday in connection with the shooting, jail records show. He faces charges of murder, attempted murder and battery with the use of a deadly weapon, police said Tuesday.

Shakespeare remained in the jail Tuesday without bail, jail records show.

The victim went to confront the suspect at the home on Conroe Court after hearing about a fight between his girlfriend and multiple other women at a hotel on the Strip, Spencer said Saturday. Police said Tuesday the shooting appeared to be “prostitution related” and that Shakespeare and the victim knew each other.

The victim’s girlfriend had her cellphone stolen, and the two tracked the phone’s location Saturday morning to the home on Conroe Court, police said Tuesday.

The victim confronted Shakespeare, and the two had a fistfight in the home’s driveway before Shakespeare allegedly shot the man, police said.

Shakespeare drove away from the scene before police arrived but turned himself into officers about 3:15 p.m. Saturday, police said.

Police asked anyone with information about the shooting to call Metro’s homicide section at 702-828-3521. Anonymous tips can be left with Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
