The Clark County Coroner's office released Tuesday the names of three people killed in separate and unrelated homicide cases, as well as a driver who died in a rollover over the weekend.
Kamau Griffin, 22, died from multiple gunshot wounds in the early morning hours of Nov. 9, the coroner said.
According to Las Vegas Metro police, Griffin may have been checking on a noise in a back window of an apartment unit in the 2900 block of Sandy Lane, near Pecos Road and Las Vegas Boulevard North, when he was shot through the glass.
Griffin was found dead by police who were responding to gunshots in the area, Metro said. There were no arrests made yet in the incident.
The coroner's office identified a person found dead in another apartment shooting incident as 34-year-old Edwin Antoine Clark.
Jones was found dead by police who were called to the area of Simmons Street and W. Lake Mead Boulevard about 4:43 p.m. on Nov. 10, according to Metro.
Police said a woman was also wounded in the incident. The coroner's office said Clark died of multiple gunshot wounds as a result of a homicide. There were no arrests made yet in the incident.
Kevin Levert Jones, Jr., 31, was identified as the person who died in the early morning hours of Nov. 12, according to the coroner's office.
According to North Las Vegas police, Jones may have engaged in an argument with 35-year-old Shonta Hammond at the Lucky Club Casino on Civic Center Drive. Police said Hammond appeared to have shot Jones in the incident.
Jones died at University Medical Center. Hammond was charged with murder as a result of the incident.
The Clark County Coroner's office also released the name of 25-year-old Juan Diaz, who died of multiple injuries as a result of a motor vehicle accident.
According to Nevada Highway Patrol, Diaz was the driver of a 2000 GMC pickup truck that was westbound on Interstate 215 when it rolled over near Windmill Lane on Nov. 10.
Diaz was ejected from the vehicle, NHP said.
