LAS VEGAS, NV (KXNT) - Metro Police have arrested a 25 year old man and charged him with murder in the death of a  woman in the central Valley earlier this week.

On Monday, police received a report of gunfire in an apartment complex in the 2200 block of West Bonanza. Arriving officers found a woman laying in the apartment suffering from a gunshot wound. Medical personnel arrived, but the victim was pronounced dead at the scene.

The preliminary investigation by the LVMPD Homicide Section indicated the victim was involved in a verbal altercation in the residence with her boyfriend, 25-year-old Steven Clifford. The circumstances of the shooting were unclear that night but Clifford was arrested on unrelated charges.

Homicide Detectives then coordinated with Clark County Coroner’s office and on Wednesday decided that they had enough evidence to re-book Clifford for one count of Open Murder.

The identity of the victim will be released by the Clark County Coroner’s Office.
