LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- A 14-year-old boy was arrested in connection with a July shooting, according to Las Vegas Metropolitan Police.

The boy is suspected of being involved in a shooting near Maryland Parkway and Tropicana Avenue. 

Police received a call around 9:48 p.m. on July 31 about a person shot in an alley in the 1100 block of Toni Avenue. Police found an adult man with gunshot wounds.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified the victim as 49-year-old Faris Martinez. He died of a gunshot wound in a homicide, the coroner said.

The boy was later charged in an Aug. 8 deadly shooting near Maryland Parkway and Flamingo Road. A man was found dead, shot multiple times inside of a car about 12:30 a.m.

Police said the victim was sitting in his car while speaking to the suspect standing outside at the window. At some point, the suspect shot the victim and fled. No suspect information was immediately available. 

LVMPD has yet to release the name of the 14-year-old suspect, just identifying him by age and sex in online homicide logs.
