The Clark County Coroner's Office has released the identity of the male employee who was fatally shot during a Walgreens robbery.

Las Vegas Metro police Friday evening reported they made an arrest in a deadly shooting and robbery earlier in the day. 

Police said a male store clerk was shot and killed during a robbery at a Walgreens store located near Cheyenne Avenue and Durango Drive. The coroner has identified that clerk as 58 year-old Antonino Isnit, of Las Vegas. 

According to the department's detective, Ray Steiber, a man entered the store just after 5 a.m., initiated a robbery and held Isnit and a female employee at gunpoint.

Steiber said the assailant was inside the store between 40 minutes and an hour. During that time, he shot and killed Isnit in a back office area. The female employee was unharmed.

Steiber described the robbery as a "targeted attack," indicating it was planned out ahead of time.

Detectives identified 25-year-old Jin Ackerman as a suspect in Friday morning's shooting and robbery as well as the robbery of a Walgreens located on West Desert Inn Road about 5 a.m. Wednesday. Detectives tracked Ackerman to a home in the 1600 block of April Shower Place. He was taken into custody by a SWAT team.
