LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – The Henderson Police Department has reported the arrest of a suspect in a fatal shooting nearly two years ago.

The victim has been named as Xavier Steen, 34, by the Clark County Coroner’s Office. It was determined that his death was a murder.
According to investigators, one automobile was rear-ended by another, and the two drivers stopped to exchange information. One motorist grew enraged and pulled out a revolver, shooting numerous bullets at the other before driving away.
