The Clark County Grand jury has indicted an 18-year-old Las Vegas man who is charged with shooting three people at the skateboard area of Winchester Park on Aug. 17.
Steven Ray Mondragon was indicted on three counts of attempted murder, three counts of battery and one count of carrying a concealed weapon.
According to prosecutors, the incident began after Mondragon got into a fistfight with another man at the park, and returned later with two friends to resume the fight, which was purportedly gang related and involved rival “taggers,” or graffiti vandals.
Mondragon told police he shot the three victims when he fired his weapon into a crowd.
His victims, two 16-year-old boys and an 18-year-old man, suffered gunshot wounds; one of them was grievously injured. He was shot five times in the abdomen and arm. The other victims suffered wounds to their leg and pelvic areas, respectively.
Judge Linda Bell set Mondragon’s bail at $200,000.
“Kids shooting kids, that’s what’s the world’s come to,” said the unidentified grand jury foreman after the brief hearing.
