UPDATE ON AUG. 9: An arrest report revealed new details about a drive-by shooting that left one man dead near Desert Inn Road and Nellis Boulevard.
According to the report, Larry Rinker was dating a woman, but she left him for another man. The man had apparently been dating the woman for five years before she left him to date Rinker.
On Aug. 5, a verbal and physical fight took place between Rinker, his friend Jimmy Roper, and the man whom the woman was dating. Reports indicate that Rinker and Roper may have picked up the woman against her will. When the man whom the woman was dating went to confront Rinker and Roper, the woman ran inside his car while Rinker and Roper vowed to take the man's life.
The man and his roommate, Angel Fabre, set up a surveillance camera in their home. Later that evening, another roommate received a call from his daughter that a green pickup truck had pulled onto their street and turned its lights off. Fabre was curious if the green truck was driven by Rinker and Roper, so he went outside to the driveway.
It was then Roper, who was inside the green truck with Rinker, reportedly shot Fabre. The man dating their former lover told police that he saw the whole thing through his surveillance camera.
A records check revealed that Rinker had a prior felony conviction for Assault with a Deadly Weapon, while Roper had felony convictions for Possession of a Stolen Vehicle and Burglary and Battery with a Deadly Weapon.
