Two 18-year-old men are in custody as suspects in the killing of a 25-year-old man in northwest Las Vegas last Thursday.

According to Las Vegas Metro police, Thayron Paxton and William Bogan are being held at Henderson Detention Center in connection to the May 11 deadly shooting.

Detectives developed both men as suspects in the shooting that took place at 5:55 p.m. in the 7000 block of West Gowan Road. Officers found a man suffering from a gunshot wound. The man was pronounced dead at the scene.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the victim as 25-year-old Dareon Daes, whose death was ruled a homicide due to a gunshot of the chest.
