Police: 17-year-old dead, suspect arrested after shooting in southeast valley

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) -- A 17-year-old is dead and a 26-year-old man is in custody following a shooting in the southeast valley.

The fatal shooting happened just before 10 p.m. Friday. Police received a report of a person shot at an apartment complex near Vegas Valley Drive and Nellis Boulevard.

Officers located a 17-year-old male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. They also located the suspect, 26-year-old Ellis Neal, at the scene and took him into custody.

According to police, the victim was visiting a relative who lives in the apartment complex and got into an argument with the relative’s roommate, Neal, which led to a fight outside the apartment.

Neal was booked into the Clark County Detention Center for one count of open murder... Read More

Raiders getting at least 1 starter back from COVID list

The Las Vegas Raiders will get back at least one of the starting defensive players who missed last week’s game on the COVID-19 list.

Linebacker Cory Littleton is set to play on Sunday when the Raiders (6-4) visit the Atlanta Falcons (7-3). Defensive lineman Clelin Ferrell is also a possibility to play.

Littleton returned to practice this week after missing two games following a positive coronavirus test. Backup Nicholas Morrow played well in Littleton’s absence and should remain in the mix this week even with Littleton back.

“We are going to play all our linebackers” coach Jon Gruden said. “We’re going to play a lot of people on defense. We’re still looking for the right combination on all three levels and that’s a big part of the process here this week.”... Read More

Black Friday sees record online as US shoppers stay home

(AP) -- Black Friday online sales hit a new record this year as pandemic-wary Americans filled virtual carts instead of real ones.

Consumers spent an estimated $9 billion on U.S. retail websites on Black Friday, according to Adobe Analytics, which tracks online shopping. That was a 22% increase over the previous record of $7.4 billion in 2019.

The company expects Monday to be the largest online sales day in U.S. history, with estimated spending of between $10.8 billion and $12.7 billion.
