Suspect shot a group of men, killing 1, Las Vegas police say


A resident of an apartment just north of UNLV is accused of shooting two people outside the complex, killing one.

Alphonso Bullie, 23, was arrested on warrant on August 10 after walking out of his home at Aspen Meadows Apartments, 3601 Cambridge Street, according to a Metropolitan Police Department arrest report released on Friday.

Bullie is accused of shooting at a group of four men, punching two of them, as he walked outside the apartment complex on June 16 at around 7:15 p.m., according to the arrest warrant.

Lashawn Bickham, 23, died at Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center from multiple gunshot wounds. The second man was shot several times, but police said he had to survive.

Two people driving by told police they saw a man in a group of three draw a gun and point it at the approaching group of four men. Witnesses said they heard several gunshots.

Detectives found a trail of blood from the road where Bickham was found, eight bullets at the scene and a 9mm Ruger thrown over a nearby fence, according to the warrant.

An anonymous witness told police he saw the shooter rush into apartment 186, which was registered in Bullie’s name.

Bullie is being held without bond for murder and attempted murder.
