Cooley was booked at the Las Vegas City Jail where he faces one count of murder with a deadly weapon.

On Feb. 14, police said a verbal argument that broke out between Cooley and an unidentified 36-year-old man may have led to the shooting. Investigators believe the two men knew each other.

The Clark County Coroner will release the identity of the deceased man once his family is notified.
