LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Police say an argument in a club's bathroom led to a deadly shooting on the Las Vegas Strip over the recent weekend.

Officers were called to the Hawaiian Marketplace on Las Vegas Boulevard, near Harmon Avenue, around 3 a.m. Sunday after a fight broke out between a group of people.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department Homicide Lt. Ray Spencer says that 25-year-old Malik Frost shot and killed a person during the fight, along with injuring two others.

Monday, an LVMPD arrest report says the disagreement between the parties involved started in a nearby club because Frost was inside the women's bathroom.

When outside of the club, Frost was with his girlfriend and she reportedly pulled a gun out of her purse and gave it to him, according to the report.

Then, multiple people in the group started arguing with Frost and police say that's when the 25-year-old pulled out the gun saying he would shoot anyone who got close to him.

A person, identified as Darrell White Jr. in the report, started arguing with Frost's girlfriend and that's when Frost reportedly shot White in the chest.

Spencer said two men tried chasing Frost, with one throwing a rock at his head. But then Frost turned and fired three more shots, striking one of them in the leg. A ricochet also hit a third person.

Both of those men survived the shooting. The man who was shot in the leg underwent surgery at Sunrise Hospital.

Frost was eventually taken into custody by officers at the Travel Lodge on Las Vegas Boulevard according to the police report.

The 25-year-old was transported to the University Medical Center for treatment for his head injury and then booked in the Clark County Detention Center.

Frost is facing charges of murder and attempted murder from the April 25 incident with his next scheduled court appearance currently set for April 28.
