LAS VEGAS, Nev. (702 Times, NV Globe) – The son of a Nevada state legislator will appear for a competence hearing after being detained in connection with a shooting investigation last month.
Na’Onche Osborne, 21, is accused with battery with a dangerous weapon and firing a pistol inside a house. On November 18, a competency hearing has been scheduled in Clark County District Court.
A North Las Vegas police spokeswoman said officers were summoned at 6:43 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 20, to a report of a person shot at a property in a gated neighborhood near Elkhorn Road and Aviary Way.
Officers discovered a man in his 40s with an apparent gunshot wound and transported him to the hospital. Police apprehended Osborne as the suspect.
Osborne is the adoptive son of state Sen. Pat Spearman, a Democrat who represents District 1 in North Las Vegas.
Spearman stated at a news conference last month that Osborne shot her nephew at her home while she was attending a Halloween celebration at Sedway Middle School. She stated that she adopted Osborne as a teenager because “she wanted to show him a better life.”
Spearman was also a candidate for mayor of North Las Vegas at the time of the massacre.
