Police are investigating a deadly domestic related shooting near the Southern Highlands Golf Club Saturday evening.

Officers responded to the area of Salernes Street and Shinnecock Hills Avenue at about 6:15 p.m. to investigate a report of a woman shot.

Arriving officers said they found a woman suffering from apparent gunshot wounds inside a vehicle with a man standing outside of the car.

The female victim was transported to the University Medical Center, but was pronounced deceased by medical personnel.

Homicide detectives initiated an investigation and said the two had been in a relationship for about a year and the shooting took place while the woman was sitting in the driver's seat of the vehicle.

A handgun was recovered at the scene, according to detectives, and the man identified as 27-year-old Ivan Cotton was taken into custody.

Cotton was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center on one count of murder with a deadly weapon.

This was the 135th homicide investigated by Metro in 2016.

Anyone with further information on this incident is urged to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
