A woman has been arrested by Metro Police in connection with the weekend shooting death of 17-year-old Las Vegas resident Demario Hughes.

Stacey Thomas, 27, was arrested Tuesday, according to Clark County jail inmate records. On Sunday, police identified Thomas as a person of interest in the case. County court records indicate she has been charged with murder with a deadly weapon.

Police arrived at 3:41 a.m. on Saturday at a housing complex near Lake Mead Boulevard and Jones Boulevard and found Hughes on the ground. Hughes suffered multiple gunshot wounds and was pronounced dead on the scene, police said.

According to a Metro investigation, Hughes was a passenger in a vehicle with an unknown driver when he was shot. He fell out of the vehicle onto the ground, police said. The driver got out and walked over to Hughes' body before getting back into the car and driving away, police said.

Thomas is being held in the Clark County Detention Center without bail.
