LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is investigating a homicide at the 3800 block of Nellis Boulevard, near Twain Avenue.
A woman was found dead around 7:05 a.m. Monday in the area. The woman was shot at least once in the head.
Investigators say the victim was a friend of the woman who lived in the apartment and had come to visit.
Shortly after the victim arrived, a male who also lived in the apartment but had left, came back and became involved in a verbal altercation with the victim.
A short time later, the female resident heard gunshots, saw the victim on the floor and saw the suspect leave the apartment.
Through the course of the investigation, the suspect was identified as 41-year-old Frederick Daniels. Detectives were able to determine Daniels may have fled to the Anaheim, California area.
The Las Vegas Criminal Apprehension Team contacted the California Fugitive Task Force, along with the Anaheim County Sheriff’s Office for assistance in locating the suspect.
At about 5:30 p.m. Daniels was taken into custody without incident.
Daniels was arrested on the LVMPD warrant for murder with a deadly weapon and is being held in Santa Ana, California while he awaits extradition to Las Vegas.
