Updated September 24, 2022 - 11:16 am

Jail records identified the woman accused of shooting another woman outside an east Las Vegas home Friday.

Lahela Kia Kaiwi-Brewer, 27, was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center on suspicion of one count of murder with a deadly weapon.

Kaiwi-Brewer was booked in connection with the fatal shooting of a woman on the 4400 block of Dennis Way, near South Mountain Vista Street and East Harmon Avenue.

Police were called at 7:23 a.m. Friday to the home after Kaiwi-Brewer and a woman in her early 30s got into a fight that police believe ended with Kaiwi-Brewer grabbing a handgun and shooting the other woman, according to Metropolitan Police Department Lt. Robert Price.

The woman, who did not live in the neighborhood, died at the scene.

Further details on the case were not immediately available Saturday.
