North Las Vegas police said Thursday that 20-year-old Jarquan Tiffith and 16-year-old Damion Dill face charges of murder with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit murder and four counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon. Police are not releasing the name of the final suspect who is being sought.

On Thursday, police also released surveillance from the shooting.

The shooting happened Nov. 1 in the 6700 block of Courtney Michelle Street when police said reported gang members shot into the wrong house in retaliation for a shooting at a nightclub. 11-year-old Angelina was the only one hit in the home despite multiple gunshots. However, two adults, ages 30 and 33, and two girls, 14 and 6, were also in the home at the time of the shooting.

17-year-old Erin Hines was arrested shortly after the shooting. He was identified as the getaway driver for the five involved. 

Hines told police he didn’t want to shoot anyone so he wanted to be driving the vehicle. 

According to the arrest report for Tiffith and Dill, Hines pointed out Tiffith and Dill as the shooters based on Facebook pictures.

19-year-old suspect Guy Lee Banks III died after a neighbor shot at the vehicle as the Nissan Altima drove away from the residence. The neighbor is not facing charges and is cooperating with the investigation. 

The neighbor was a retired U.S. Air Force Security Forces airman, according to Hines’ arrest report. The neighbor then saw the shooters run toward his direction and fired shots, perceiving a deadly threat.
