Three charged with shooting that killed one, wounded two

Las Vegas police arrested a man and two juveniles for a year-old drive-by shooting that left one man dead and two others wounded by gunfire.

Police arrested 20-year-old Shaundrell Gentry and two 16-year-old boys this week and booked them into local detention centers on multiple charges, including murder with a deadly weapon, attempted murder with a deadly weapon and discharging a firearm from a motor vehicle.

Authorities arrested the three in the shooting death of 18-year-old Marcus Williams, who was shot and killed on Sept. 29, 2006, at the Sunset Palms Apartments at 900 Doolittle Avenue, near Lake Mead and Martin Luther King boulevards.

Police found Williams and a juvenile wounded on the sidewalk in front of the apartment complex. Both were taken to University Medical Center, where Williams died.

A third juvenile walked into UMC later that night with a gunshot wound in his hand.

“Due to the hard work of the detectives involved in this case and the cooperation of the community, we were able to solve this case that may otherwise have gone unsolved,” said Sgt. Russell Shoemaker with the homicide unit.

Shoemaker said the shooting appeared to be gang-related.

Police withheld the names of the juveniles arrested.
