Metro Police have arrested the fourth suspect in connection with two shooting deaths last week.

Metro's Criminal Apprehension Team arrested Da Ron Morris, 29, on Friday, according to a police press release. Police previously reported the Wednesday arrests of Brandon Range, 24; Maurice Sims, 23 and Sasha Williams, 21.

The four were suspected in a violent dispute over property or money, police said. They were transported to the Clark County Detention Center and charged with the following:

Two counts each of murder with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit murder with a deadly weapon, attempted murder with a deadly weapon, home invasion with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit home invasion, three counts each of robbery with a deadly weapon, conspiracy to commit robbery with a deadly weapon, burglary with a deadly weapon and conspiracy to commit burglary with a deadly weapon.

The incident occurred last Tuesday, Jan. 8, about 8 p.m. in an apartment complex at the 300 block of East Harmon Avenue. Metro officers were called to the scene on a report of a person shot at the complex.

Upon arrival, officers found a man suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. He was transported to Sunrise Medical Center's Trauma Unit with what appeared to be a non-life threatening injury, police said.

A preliminary investigation found that three suspects entered the apartment and exchanged fire with the occupants. Two of the occupants — Anthony Anderson and Evin Tolbert — were killed in the gunfire, but a third occupant, Laurice Brightman, was able to escape and call for assistance, police said.

It seemed the suspects and the victims knew each other, police said.

The investigation remains ongoing. Anyone with any information is urged to contact Metro's homicide section at 702-828-3521, or to remain anonymous, to contact Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555 or online at www.crimestoppersofnv.com.
