LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) –
The Clark County coroner’s office has released the identity of a teenager killed Sunday morning after a raucous house party.
Issachar Akaka, 18, of Las Vegas died of a gunshot wound to his torso. His death was ruled a homicide.
According to Metro, it received a 911 call just after 5 a.m. regarding multiple subjects shot in a parking lot in the 3400 block of North Rancho Drive. Arriving officers and medical personnel located four victims suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.
Three of the victims were transported to the UMC Trauma Center where they were treated. Akaka was pronounced dead at the scene.
The investigation initiated by Metro’s Homicide Section indicated the victims were at a party in the 3300 block of Corona Del Mar Drive when they were involved in a verbal altercation that later turned physical.
After the fight broke up, the victims got into their vehicle and left the area.
As the victims drove to the intersection of Jones Boulevard and Miracosta Avenue, a white, four-door vehicle, possibly a Honda Civic, drove alongside the victim vehicle. The front passenger of the suspect vehicle pulled out a handgun and fired into the victim vehicle, striking four of the passengers. The suspects fled and the victims drove to a convenience store, where they contacted police.
It is unknown if the suspects who were involved in the shooting are the same subjects involved in the original confrontation at the party. Detectives believe there may be several people who witnessed the altercation at the party, and they are asking for assistance in identifying the suspects, as well as the subjects involved in the original confrontation with the victims.
