NORTH LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- Police arrested a man Thursday in connection to the murder of his father earlier this month.

Michael Jamerson, 48, was found dead in his North Las Vegas home with a gunshot wound to the head on May 14.

NLVPD Officer Eric Leavitt characterized Jamerson Jr. as an estranged son to Jamerson.

Just before 7 p.m. on May 14, Jamerson’s 12-year-old son called police and told them he was in the shower at their home near Lone Mountain and Losee roads when he heard a loud noise, possibly a gun shot.

Leavitt said detectives on scene found a hole in the exterior of the house "big enough for a person to fit through" when initially investigating the murder.

NLVPD said Jamerson's 12-year-old son was the only one home at the time of the murder.
