UPDATE DEC. 19: On Nov. 29, a call was made by a security officer from the Four Queens Casino alerting authorities of a shooting. When patrol officers arrived they found Ryan Jamar Flowers with a gunshot wound to the chest lying on the sidewalk of the Fremont Street Experience.

Flowers was transferred to University Medical Center where he was later pronounced dead. Flowers' cousin said there had been an ongoing feud between Flowers and a man named Calvin Eugene Franklin. The feud was allegedly over a woman the two had both dated.

The cousin also said Franklin and Flowers had been roommates for two years prior to March 2017. The cousin provided authorities with Franklin's Facebook page and told them that Franklin and Flowers had physically fought over the woman as recently as Nov 27.

During their investigation police found that Flowers and his cousin were in front of Fremont hotel-casino when approached by Franklin and an unidentified woman. At that point, one of them yelled out, "There he is!"

Franklin and Flowers began to argue and Franklin shot Flowers in the chest with a small silver handgun. Franklin was then chased by Flower's cousin and an unidentified male but managed to escape.

Franklin was later arrested on Dec. 18 in California.
