North Las Vegas Police have arrested a teen in the death of a 20-year-old man found shot Wednesday evening near Carey Avenue and Revere Street.

Ryan Mcallister Jr., 17, of North Las Vegas was arrested and booked at the Clark County Juvenile Detention Center on one count of murder with a deadly weapon, police said tonight. Police had located Mcallister, initially sought as a person of interest wanted for questioning, earlier on Thursday.

Once certified as an adult, he will be transferred to the North Las Vegas Detention Center, police said.

Police are also seeking a second person for questioning. Police said Danny Pollard Jr., 18, is known to frequent the neighborhood, and detectives believe he may have information about the shooting.

The Clark County Coroner’s Office identified the victim in the shooting as Roberto Alejandro Medina of North Las Vegas.

Through the course of the investigation, detectives learned there was an ongoing dispute between the Medina and Mcallister.

For unknown reasons, Medina, who lives in the neighborhood, went to Mcallister’s house in the 800 block of Red Sox Avenue, police said. Mcallister, who was in his garage, shot multiple times at Medina as he approached and then fled, police said.

Police spokeswoman Chrissie Coon said officers responded to the home shortly before 6:30 p.m. Wednesday after receiving reports of gunshots.

When officers arrived, they found Medina dead in the front yard with at least one gunshot wound, she said.

Detectives have not ruled out the possibility that there may be other suspects in this case, police said.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the North Las Vegas Police Department at (702) 633-9111 or, to remain anonymous, Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555. Tips to Crime Stoppers that lead to an arrest or indictment may result in a cash reward.

The slaying was the fourth in North Las Vegas this year.
