A Las Vegas man is facing multiple counts of attempted murder after police say he shot at a house with seven people inside, including his young daughter.
A Las Vegas police arrest report for Joseph Soto-Leiva, 19, states that he confessed to the June 13 drive-by shooting at a home near South Decatur Boulevard and West Desert Inn Road. Police said he shot at the home from a car, with bullets hitting the residence and a vehicle. No one was injured.
Soto-Leiva told police that the family had denied him access to his child because of his “acting like a gangster and messing up,” a police report states.
Soto-Leiva is charged with seven counts of attempted murder and six counts of discharging a gun into an occupied structure or prohibited area. A preliminary hearing in the case is scheduled for July 22.
