A Las Vegas man who was legally banned from owning a gun fired into an apartment wall and ended up killed a nine-year-old boy and injuring his brother, KLAS reported.
Eliazar Quintero, 41, was identified by police earlier this month as the suspect in the fatal March 7 shooting while serving a prison sentence on drug and gun convictions. Now he faces a second-degree murder charge.
The shooting happened in an apartment on the 5300 block of Boulder Highway, south of Harmon Avenue. According to police, a stray bullet went through the wall into a neighboring apartment and struck 9-year-old Sir’ Armani Clark in the head, killing him. His 10-year-old brother was also hit but did not suffer life-threatening injuries.
While investigating the shooting, officers found a bullet hole in an apartment wall, documents obtained Monday said. Officers “conducted a welfare check” on a neighboring, unoccupied apartment, finding a “single apparent corresponding bullet hole,” they said.
Quintero reportedly said, “Say hello to my little friend” before firing into the wall.
