NLV Murder Suspect Arrested at Mexican Border | News
NORTH LAS VEGAS -- A man suspected of shooting four people in North Las Vegas in April was arrested Monday trying to cross the Mexican border.
Early Monday, immigration officials at the San Ysidro border crossing arrested Jose Alejandro Gonzales -- also known as "Smokey" -- who is wanted for murder in North Las Vegas. Gonzales was trying to enter the United States from Mexico and was detained on a murder warrant.
Gonzales is originally from Mission Viejo, Calif. He is wanted in connection with the April 26 shootings in the 2000 block of Webster St. Two men were killed and two women are still recovering from serious gunshot wounds.
His alleged accomplice, 31-year-old Ivonne Cabrera, was arrested the day after the murders and remains in custody 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. Gonzales faces the same charges.
Detectives traveled to San Diego to interview Gonzales and will request his extradition to Nevada for prosecution.
