"This is just another example of gun violence coming into play and we're not sure the reason behind it, but there are too many guns on the street and people resorting to gun violence, and it's just another tragedy where we lost another two citizens of our city", Plummer said.

The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports police responded to a motel Monday after receiving a report of a baby having a medical crisis.

Officers found him suffering from a gunshot wound, but they didn't know whether an officer shot him or he shot himself, police said.

He said the FBI's definition of a serial killer is someone who kills three or more people with about a month in between each one. Though the victim was not homeless, the victim was alone and shot randomly.

"To target homeless, a very vulnerable segment of our society, is cowardly", Plummer said. The shooter is described as white or Hispanic male about 6 feet tall.

Detectives say the man, believed to have done all of the shootings using the same gun, started his shooting spree on January 29.

Hours later, the second victim was shot and killed around 3 a.m. while he was sleeping near the Rancho Discount Mall near Lorenzi Park, police say.

Man City boost: Riyad Mahrez will return to Leicester on one condition
Riyad Mahrez and Leicester should aim to resolve their dispute "as soon as possible", says players' union chief Gordon Taylor. He wants the club to provide an assurance that they will not stand in his way if City, or anyone else, want to sign him.


He was driving a 2016 or 2018 Hyundai Tucson Sport Limited SUV that is silver, gray or light blue.

Plummer said the incidents were random. The suspect faces two counts of assault on a protected person with a deadly weapon, jail records show.

The coroner later identified him as 51-year-old Brian Wayne Clegg.

On Feb. 2, police said a 68-year-old homeless man was shot near 14th Street and USA 95.

Police later determined the SUV caught on video fleeing the scene of the first shooting was the same vehicle connected to one of the other shootings later that day.

Las Vegas police released graphic video of the shooting, captured by surveillance cameras, in an effort to identify the suspect.
