LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Las Vegas police arrested a man they say committed a deadly shooting in Spring Valley on Friday night.

About 9:16 p.m. on Sept. 10, police were called to the 6900 block of Montcliff Ave., near Twain Avenue and Rainbow Boulevard, for a man who was shot.

Police found the victim in the driveway of the home with a gunshot wound. He was taken to University Medical Center where he died.

The victim lived in the home and sublet it to Antoine Cloutier, 44, police said. The two fought and Cloutier was asked to move out. During the fight, police said Cloutier fatally shot the victim. The suspect then fled the scene.

The Clark County Coroner's Office has identified the victim as 44-year-old Rafael Ampier. He died of a gunshot wound to the chest in a homicide, the coroner ruled. 

Ampier's wife told police the homeowner had "grown tired" of them living at the home and prior to the shooting, she and Ampier were discussing where to go.

Early Saturday morning, police said Cloutier as found and arrested. He was booked into the Clark County Detention Center where he faces a murder charge.

Anyone with additional information is asked to contact police or CrimeStoppers.
