A 31-year-old woman was arrested in connection with a shooting Thursday that killed two people and seriously injured two others, according to North Las Vegas Police.

Ivonne Cabrera was arrested early Friday and booked at the North Las Vegas Detention Center, Sgt. Tim Bedwell said.

Cabrera faces charges of 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, police said.

Cabrera was arrested for her alleged involvement in a Thursday morning shooting at a residence on the 2000 block of Webster Street, said Bedwell.

“It’s our belief this was intended to be a quadruple homicide,” said Bedwell, adding that there is another suspect, known by the alias Smokey, who is still outstanding. The man believed to be in his mid to late 20s and should be considered armed and dangerous.

“She conspired with Smokey to commit this crime,” Bedwell said.

Police are asking for the public’s help identifying and locating the man who is believed to frequent North Las Vegas and live near the UNLV campus, Bedwell said.

Smokey is a Hispanic man who stands about 5 feet 6 inches tall, weighs about 130 pounds and is believed to be bald or his head shaved, police said.

Two women who survived suffered multiple gunshot wounds to the upper torso and head, according to police.

“This was a terrible, horrible thing,” Bedwell said. “This was an intentional going into someone’s home and trying to kill four people.”

Bedwell said the two injured during the shooting are recovering in the hospital and are expected to survive.

The Clark County coroner's office will release the identities of the two men killed in the shooting, police said.

Anyone with information can call the North Las Vegas Police Department at 633-9111 or Crime Stoppers at 385-5555, to remain anonymous.

  1. That boy's days are numbered; I can hear someone dropping a dime already.

    We the people need to stay vigilant, if not we will be slaughtered like sheep.

    America has turned a corner and not for the better, I say.

  2. North Las Vegas is a haven of people sucking off our money. They need to put up that 50-foot fence and surround it and simply let them have their fun. What people fail to accept, you simply can't fix stupid.
