The Clark County Coroner’s Office has identified an 11-year-old girl killed Thursday in what North Las Vegas Police said was a gang-related shooting that targeted the wrong house. She was Angelina Juliana Erives, officials said.
A suspect shot in the head when, according to police, a neighbor opened fire on a fleeing car occupied by the shooters also was identified today as 19-year-old Guy Lee Banks III. He died Saturday at University Medical Center, the Coroner’s Office said.
Officers responded about 9:40 p.m. Thursday to a two-story house in the 6700 block of Courtney Michelle Street where Angelina, who was sitting in the kitchen with her mother and sisters working on a science project, was gravely wounded, police said.
A group of people in a car were targeting a different house when they mistakenly opened fire on the home of the family of five, police said.
Angelina suffered multiple gunshot wounds, the Coroner’s Office said.
Banks was found about 3 miles from the scene in a car that had broken down, police said. A 17-year-old driver told police the car had been hit by random gunfire and he needed to get his friend to a hospital.
The unidentified driver was arrested on counts of murder, attempted murder and conspiracy, authorities said.
The man who shot Banks was not expected to face any charges, police said.
Police on Friday said they were still searching for three additional suspects.
Angelina’s family on Saturday night hosted a candlelight vigil in which the girl was described as being a “perfect child.”
