Arrest made in November robbery that turned deadly

Two men suspected in a robbery that turned deadly in November have been arrested, Las Vegas police said Wednesday.

Police are still looking for a third young man they say was involved.

My-Son McNair, 19, was arrested on Nov. 22, police said, and Daivion Moore, also 19, was arrested four days later. They each face one count each of murder with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery and attempted robbery with a deadly weapon.

Detectives are now looking for a third man who is known as “Man-Man.” He is described as between the ages of 17 and 20, standing 5 feet 2 inches to 5 feet 5 inches, and weighing 120 to 140 pounds, police said.

Officers were called to the 1900 block of Simmons Street, near Vegas Drive, on Nov. 11 about 10:30 p.m. where they found 22-year-old Laura Ashley McKinney lying on the street and suffering from a gunshot wound. She later died at University Medical Center.

Police initially said that McKinney and a friend were walking when they were approached by the three men, one of them carrying a gun. McKinney was shot once in the chest sometime after they tried robbing her. The three men fled on foot, according to police.

Anyone with information is urged to call police at 702-828-3521. To remain anonymous, contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 and www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
