Shooting

Metro Police have arrested a 26-year-old Las Vegas man in connection with the June 1 shooting death of a man at an apartment complex west of the Stratosphere.

Herbie Moore was booked into the Clark County Detention Center in connection with murder with a deadly weapon and two counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon. The attempted murder charges stem from Moore allegedly shooting two women during the incident.

Metro Lt. Lew Roberts said police received a 911 call about 8:30 p.m. June 1 that there had been a shooting in the 300 block of West Cleveland Avenue. He said officers arrived and found 25-year-old Patrick Beverly dead with multiple gunshot wounds. Authorities also found two women who had been shot and transported them to University Medical Center, Roberts said.

It is unknown what initiated the shooting, but Roberts said it is believed there was a dispute involving the victims.

Detectives were searching for Moore after he was seen fleeing the area, police said.

Court records show Moore has been on probation since April 2009 for attempted possession of a stolen vehicle.
