A 19-year-old Las Vegas man was arrested this morning in connection with the shooting death of a 16-year-old boy in North Las Vegas last month.

Soloman White was booked into the North Las Vegas Detention Center on one count of murder with a deadly weapon and four counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon. North Las Vegas Police on Thursday had identified two other suspects in the case but said Friday the search for the other two men has been canceled.

Officers received a call about 6:40 p.m. May 26 of shots fired in the 5100 block of Cross Ranch Street, police spokesman Sgt. Tim Bedwell said. When police arrived, they found the boy, identified as Donald Troutman, with gunshot injuries, he said.

Troutman was taken to University Medical Center, where he died in surgery, Bedwell said. The coroner’s office said he died of a gunshot wound to the buttocks.

The shooting took place near North Fifth Street and East Washburn Road, not far from Mojave High School.
