Metro police have now made three arrests in connection with what they described as a violent residential robbery on Jan. 30.
Police said they were notified of a robbery, kidnapping and vehicle theft just before 2 a.m. on Casa Colina Court in the northwest part of Las Vegas.
Three men forced one of the home's two occupants inside the house at gunpoint. After waking the other resident up, the three allegedly ransacked the house. One of the suspects fired several shots at a victim before fleeing with valuables and the victims' vehicle. No one was struck by gunfire.
Two of the suspects – Ezra Peoples, 18, and Maurice Daniel Talley, 19 – were arrested the next day when North Las Vegas officers spotted the stolen vehicle. Peoples and Talley fled the vehicle after a traffic stop but were quickly caught.
Police recovered stolen items and numerous weapons from the stolen car, tying the two to the robbery.
The third suspect, Kyron Butler, 22, was arrested on Tuesday.
All three suspects face charges including robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary, kidnapping and auto theft. It's believed Talley fired on the victim, leading police to additionally charge him with battery with a deadly weapon and attempted murder.
Peoples is also the suspect in a recent shooting at a soccer park in northwest Las Vegas that injured two women. Police believe he shot the women from the bedroom of his nearby home.
Peoples faces two counts of attempted murder in connection with the park shooting.
