Police Step Up Efforts to Find Murder Suspect

 

North Las Vegas Police are stepping up efforts to find a man they say is connected to a quadruple shooting that happened in April.

Detectives have obtained arrest warrants for 22-year-old Jose Alejandro Gonzales, also known as “Smokey.” He is wanted for conspiracy to commit murder, two counts of first-degree murder with a deadly weapon, two counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon and burglary with a deadly weapon.

The shooting happened at a duplex on Webster Street, which is near Lake Mead Boulevard and Civic Center. Four people were shot in the early morning hours of April 26. Two men died. Two women were seriously hurt and are still recovering. A woman who police say was also involved in the murders is already under arrest. Police arrested 31-year-old Ivonne Cabrera shortly after the shootings.

Gonzales is originally from Mission Viejo, California. He still has family living in the area. He was living in Las Vegas at the time of the shootings. He is a convicted felon with prior convictions for evading a police officer and assault with a deadly weapon. He has a tattoo on his chest which says: Forgive me mother for my crazy life. He also has a tattoo on the back of his neck that reads: OC. He is a Hispanic man, 5-foot-10 and 160 pounds. He is bald or has a shaved head. Besides the name Smokey, he has also used the name Jose Diaz. Police say he is armed and dangerous.

Police believe he is driving the car used in the murders. It is a gray Dodge Intrepid.
