First fight turns to double stabbing leaving one dead, another injured
On January 20, 2013 at approximately 2:57 p.m., Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officers responded to a fight call at the apartment complex located in the 3700 block of Wynn Road. The officers were dispatched after the LVMPD Dispatch center received a 9-1-1 call concerning the altercation. Officers arrived and discovered the deceased body of a Hispanic male lying on the grounds of the complex. The victim appeared to have suffered multiple stab wounds. Officers also located another Hispanic male who was suffering from a single stab wound to his left side. This second victim was transported to University Medical Center where he remains in critical condition. The motive for this incident appears to be a dispute over an illicit drug transaction. The suspect in these stabbings is identified as 32 year old Nerio Nava, ID #. Nava was arrested and transported to CCDC where he was charged with Murder With Use of a Deadly Weapon and Attempt Murder With a Deadly Weapon. A mugshot of Nava accompanies this release.
