Report: Robbery that killed woman was random
My-Son McNair and Daivion Moore

LAS VEGAS -- A report released by Metro Police said the victim killed in an apparent random armed robbery on Nov. 11 refused to give the robbers her belongings.

According to the police report, the three suspects followed 22-year-old Laura Ashley McKinney and here friend as they walked home from work along Simmons Street near Vegas and North Rancho drives.

The police report said all of the suspects wore hoodies. However, the man in the red hoodie, reportedly yelled “Hey.” That's when McKinney and her friend found him holding a gun.

The red-hooded man then said, “You guys have five seconds to give me everything you guys have?”

McKinney's friend said, as the suspect counting down from five, she immediately reached in her bag to give them her belongings.

The witness said she noticed McKinney wasn't handing over her belongings.

The man in the hoodie then said, “Oh, you think it's a game?” and then he shot McKinney, according to the police report.

The witness told police after McKinney was shot she fell to the ground and the suspects ran away, towards townhomes in the 1900 block of Simmons St.

The witness said she knelt down next to McKinney and applied pressure to where McKinney was shot, while also screaming for help. Two others eventually came over.

The arrest report said police said the people who came over to help were instrumental in giving a description of the suspects that they saw running away from the scene to the police.

Officers said on Nov. 21 they received a call from Joseph Abrams who told them they knew an associate by the name of My-Son McNair who wanted to turn himself in for the shooting death of McKinney.

A day later, McNair turned himself in to Metro Police and told them everything that happened — along with how he and his friends initially planned to “rob a drunk leaving a bar,” so that they could get money to buy some milk for his goddaughter.

Nineteen-year-old McNair said he was about 10 feet behind the other suspects when McKinney was shot. He said they all took off and ran into the nearby apartment complex where they ditched their hoodies and jeans, the arrest report said.

McNair said he then hopped on a bus at Lake Mead Boulevard and Simmons Street. When he returned to his goddaughter's home, one of the other men involved in the shooting was there and he still had one of the victim's wallets.

McNair said the wallet just had some change in it. That was the last time he claimed he saw the wallet.

A second suspect, Daivion Moore, 19, was arrested on Nov. 26.

Both Moore and McNair were booked into the Clark County Detention Center.

They face charges of murder with a deadly weapon, battery with a deadly weapon, attempted robbery with a deadly weapon, and conspiracy to commit robbery.

A third suspect, known as “Man-Man,” remains on-the-run, according to police.

He's described as a black man between the ages of 17 and 20, weighs 120-140 pounds and is between 5'2” to 5'5” tall.

Anyone who has any information on the identity or whereabouts of “Man-Man”, or anyone who has information about the shooting, is urged to contact the LVMPD Homicide Section at 702-828-3521, or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
