Police arrest suspect in connection with deadly Las Vegas shooting

Las Vegas police have arrested a man in connection with the shooting of a woman who died from multiple gunshot wounds in the central valley early Wednesday morning.

Police arrested Jevon Darrell Hudson, 39, in connection with the case Friday, Clark County booking logs show. Hudson was booked into the Clark County Detention Center on one count of first-degree murder.

Clark County coroner’s office on Saturday identified the woman killed as Moinee Wade, 28.

The Las Vegas woman was found dead about 12:45 a.m. Wednesday in the area of View Drive and Quartz Lane, just northeast of Jones Boulevard and Alta Drive, the Metropolitan Police Department said.

Wade was shot once in the stomach. Police said they believe the shooter stood over her as she lay bleeding and shot her again in the head.

She was pronounced dead on the sidewalk, where the shooter left her.

The Clark County coroner has ruled her death a homicide from multiple gunshot wounds. Several witnesses heard gunshots but didn’t see the shooting, police said.

Friend Karaa Gibbs said Wade had a cheerful, kind personality.

“She was always so happy and positive. She’d never stop smiling,” Gibbs said.

She added, “Moe was always there for anyone at any time. She’d give you the shirt off of her back.”

Wade was working as a cocktail waitress at Ellis Island while attending the University of Phoenix pursuing a degree in both human services and criminal justice. She was set to graduate in January, Gibbs said.

Wade leaves behind a son, Trent, who just turned 2 in August, Gibbs said. “Trent was her world.”
