LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- North Las Vegas police have a suspect in custody after a deadly shooting in the northwest valley Friday night. 

Around 8 p.m. on Jan. 14, police were called to the 6100 block Osaka Pearl near Centennial Parkway and Allen Lane for a report of a shooting. 

Emily Rose Ezra, 40, was later arrested in connection with the shooting, police said. She has been booked on the charge of open murder with a deadly weapon.

According to her arrest report, her children called 911 saying their parents were fighting and they heard loud bangs. When police arrived, they found a man in his 50s dead from a gunshot wound in their backyard.

One of their older children told police Ezra was mentally ill and didn't take her medication. The child told police Ezra had been abusive to their father and had threatened him previously. 

In custody, Ezra went back and forth with police on her children's statements. She then told them she was a spiritual medium and there was a spirit in the interview room with them. 

Based on evidence at the scene and Ezra's home, police arrested her for the shooting.

The identity of the victim will be released by the Clark County Coroner pending notification of kin.
