One of two men sought in the death of an 8-year-old North Las Vegas girl has been captured.

The girl, Savanah Bullins, was shot and killed inside her father's second-floor apartment at 2112 Sun Ave. on June 12, police said. She was shot by men who fired through the wall into the apartment from the ground outside.

Investigators believe Savanah's father, Wilbert Bullins, 27, was the intended target of the gunfire, said Sgt. Tim Bedwell, spokesman for the North Las Vegas Police Department.

North Las Vegas detectives received warrants today for the arrest of Marcus Dewayne Larry, 27, and Kenneth Reid, 20, both of North Las Vegas, for the murder of Savanah Bullins and related charges, Bedwell said.

About 4 p.m. Wednesday officers assigned to the NLV Police Problem Solving Unit found and arrested Larry in the area of Carey Avenue and Pecos Road in North Las Vegas, Bedwell said.

Reid is still on the loose and considered armed and dangerous, Bedwell said.

Anyone with information about Reid's whereabouts is urged to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at (702) 633-9111, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (702) 385-5555.
