A man has been booked on a count of open murder in the shooting death of his girlfriend Monday at an apartment west of downtown Las Vegas, according to Metro Police.

Officers responded about 6:20 p.m. Monday to reports of gunfire and found a woman dead at an apartment in the 2200 block of West Bonanza Road, police said.

The Clark County Coroner's Office identified her as Savannah Anne Millner, 24, of Las Vegas.

A preliminary investigation indicated Millner was involved in an argument with her boyfriend, Steven Clifford, 25, police said. The circumstances of the shooting were unclear, and Clifford was arrested on unrelated counts, police said.

After coordinating with the Clark County Coroner’s Office, detectives on Wednesday established probable cause to rebook Clifford on a count of open murder, police said.
