Police believe three black men were involved in the killing and said they escaped in a mid-to-late 1980s, baby blue, four-door Cadillac with a white top. Police said there may be bullet marks on the car. The police have yet to identify any suspects.

  1. What a common vehicle....I'm sure it would be hard to spot, or hard to look up the general make and model to verify against NV DMV records.

    Sounds like a good car to commit a crime in...

    I wonder if it was one of those downtown hipsters fighting over first world problems like a barista putting skim instead of soy in their latee??

    Ashley -- you're about 22 blocks off. Fremont @ 28th is Boulder Highway. The next coffee shop on Fremont is The Beat @ 6th.
