UPDATE: The grandparents of a Las Vegas teen killed outside a gas station Sunday morning are grieving the 18-year-old.

Gianni Corsentino died just days after celebrating his birthday and graduating from Liberty High School.

"Cold-blooded murder. They tried to shoot everybody in the car," said his grandmother Jeane Lato.

"My grandson's life is done, 18 years on this earth and that's it," said his grandfather Tony Lato Jr.

Standing in his bedroom, Tony said the grief comes in waves.

"I have to live without him, he was my best friend, he was my sidekick," he said.

The Vietnam veteran is in shock.

He said he does not recognize the alleged killers seen in surveillance video police released Monday.

Corsentino was in his brand-new car with two friends when it happened.  All three of them were hit, Corsentino in the face.

"The gun jammed, he was going to kill them all," Tony said.

His grandmother thinks about the last time she spoke with her grandson and something felt different. Jeane said she would always be the one to say she loved him first.

"He would only say I love you too grandma, but this time he said it first to me, Grandma I love you Grandma," she said.

The Latos are going to remember their grandson's accomplishments, including his high school diploma and athletic trophies.

"He was just outstanding as a person, we always taught Gianni from the time we had him at a young child, to always respect people, to do right," Tony said.

Tony bought Gianni the new car as a graduation gift. The Latos said their grandson never got into trouble.  He had just received a baseball scholarship to attend college in Rhode Island. 

"He was just at the wrong place at the wrong time with the wrong people," said Jeane. 

The Latos got the horrific news while on vacation in Missouri. They were trying to get in touch with Gianni but he never responded. 

"I don't know what's happening in this country but it's not the way I was brought up," said Tony.

"They're going to find them," said Jeane. 

There has been a huge show of support from the community.  The Latos said nearly 100 people showed up at a vigil outside the gas station Sunday night. 

Police said the shooting happened after an argument.  No further information has been released at this time.

The other two victims are in stable condition.  

If you have any information, please call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.  It can be anonymous.


LAS VEGAS (KTNV) -- One man is dead and another two injured after a shooting at a Maverik gas station early Sunday morning.

Around midnight, police responded to the shooting in the 10400 block of Bermuda Road, near Cactus Avenue.

Arriving police and medical personnel located three men who were suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. All three victims were transported to UMC Trauma. Two of the victims are listed in stable condition and the third was pronounced deceased. The man who died was originally reported to be in critical condition.

Las Vegas homicide detectives determined the three men arrived at the Maverik convenience store in a vehicle. An altercation occurs between the victims and two suspects. At some point, one of the suspects walks up to the car and fires a handgun at all three victims who were sitting inside of the vehicle.

The two suspects ran from the parking lot and got into a dark-colored vehicle which appeared to be driven possibly by a third suspect and fled the area.

The first suspect is described as a black man in his 20s, 5'10", with a full beard and weighing approximately 220 pounds. He was last seen wearing a black shirt and red shorts.

The second suspect is described as a black man in his 20s, 5'9" and weighing approximately 160 pounds. He was last seen wearing a dark ball cap, white shirt with faded jeans.

This is the 84th homicide investigated by the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department in 2016.

The identity of the deceased as well as the cause and manner of death, will be released by the Clark County coroner.

A Maverik customer couldn't believe the news.

"Just doesn't happen," Steve Hansen said. "You normally don't get this out here so it's kind of a shock to have someone get shot here close to the house. It's not a good deal."

Anyone with information is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
