Final suspect arrested in North Las Vegas girl’s shooting death
About a month after 11-year-old Angelina Erives was shot and killed, the final suspect sought in connection with the shooting was arrested in California, North Las Vegas police announced Wednesday.
Isaac George, 19, was arrested Wednesday morning in San Leandro, California, near San Francisco, by the FBI Violent Crime Task Force, the North Las Vegas Police Department said. He faces charges of murder with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit murder with a deadly weapon, and four counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon, said North Las Vegas police spokesman Eric Leavitt.
George remained in San Leandro on Wednesday, awaiting extradition to Las Vegas, police said.
Three other suspects, all under age 20, were arrested in November in connection with the shooting, which happened Nov. 1 at 6705 Courtney Michelle St., near the 215 Beltway and Losee Road. The fifth person with the suspects, Guy Lee Banks III, was fatally shot by a neighbor the night of the shooting.
The shooters intended to target a rival gang member in the neighborhood, but three of the suspects fired bullets into the wrong home, police have said. Angelina was sitting at the kitchen table helping paint her 14-year-old sister’s science project with her mom and 6-year-old sister when she was shot.
