Las Vegas teenager arrested in 2 fatal shootings near UNLV
Murders both took place near UNLV last year, I-Team reported
LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A 15-year-old is charged with two murders that occurred last summer, prison records showed Wednesday.
Dennis Commodore, who was 14 when the shooting happened, faces two counts of open murder in the two deaths last summer.
Police originally arrested the teenager last August in connection with the shooting death of a man in an apartment complex on August 8, the 8 News Now I-Team reported last year.
The teenager’s name was not released at the time.
The victim, Raymond Roseby, 28, was fatally shot in a parked car in the 4900 block of South Maryland Parkway near Tropicana Avenue, the Clark County Coroner’s Office confirmed.
Investigators said Roseby died of multiple gunshot wounds. He was sitting in the driver’s seat of the car and talking to the teenager, who was standing in the driver’s window when the shooting happened.
Once in custody, police determined the teenager was a suspect in a fatal shooting on July 31.
Just before 10 p.m. that day, investigators said someone shot Faris Martinez, 49, in an alley in the 1100 block of Toni Avenue, which is also near Maryland Parkway and Tropicana Avenue.
Martinez’s cause of death was listed as multiple gunshot wounds, officials said.
Both filming locations are on the same block, just south of the UNLV campus.
Nevada law states that children 13 and older can be tried as adults if charged with murder or attempted murder.
The I-Team is awaiting more information on Commodore’s arrest.
