Police Release Video in Hopes of Finding a Killer

Metro Police have released surveillance video in hopes of finding the person who murdered a Las Vegas man in June.

Louis James Kim was found near Sahara Avenue and Las Vegas Boulevard just before 8:30 p.m. June 21. He had been stabbed. He died at University Medical Center later that night.

Video surveillance images show Kim walking eastbound along Baltimore Avenue. In the video, the suspect is seen stepping out of an alleyway and heading southbound. The suspect passes a few feet in front of Kim. He then turns back and attacks him.

The suspect did not rob Kim. Police believe the attack may have been random.

The suspect was wearing a dark colored hoodie and black shorts with a light colored stripe on the leg. He was last seen walking in the alleyway that runs north and south across from the 7-Eleven at 200 E. Boston Avenue.

Counterless Eliminates Need to Wait in Line for Food

LAS VEGAS -- UNLV film school graduate Chris Shepherd recalls meeting a young woman at a bar and promising to buy her a drink, an ordeal that required navigating his slight frame through a crowd three rows thick just to reach the counter.

"By the time I got the drinks she was gone," Shepherd said.

It wasn't an opportunity completely missed, though. The experience of fighting long lines prompted Shepherd and business partner Mike Manzano to form the Las Vegas tech startup Counterless. On June 25 the company unveiled a free smartphone app for iPhone and Android users designed to let customers order food from fast food restaurants and mobile food trucks without needing to wait in line.

Berkley's Office Visited by Conservative Bus Tour

LAS VEGAS -- Tensions were high Thursday when a bus from the conservative Americans for Prosperity political action group parked in front of Democratic Rep. Shelley Berkley's Las Vegas office.

Carrying protest signs, the people who disembarked from the bus were approached by Berkley supporters.

Berkley is challenging Sen. Dean Heller for his seat in the general election.

The Democratic supporters wanted the bus to leave the private parking lot, and customers visiting the business complex had a difficult time maneuvering around the bus and finding a place to park.

Metro police came to the parking lot, near Sahara and Rancho, to make sure the scene didn't turn violent. Officers also warned the conservative group that if they didn't move the bus, a citation would be issued.
