On Aug. 28, police were called to the McDonald’s restaurant located at 3010 Las Vegas Boulevard North in response to a call about a shooting.

The victim, identified as 31-year-old Mohammad Nestor Robinson, was located with multiple gunshot wounds. He was taken to University Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

When police interviewed Perez after he was recaptured, he said he had been smoking meth prior to the night of the shooting. That night, Perez took a woman identified as Brittanie Dougherty to the McDonald’s restaurant.

When Dougherty failed to hold the door open for Nestor Robinson, he called her a “bitch,” the report states.
