Man suspected of killing 18-year-old arrested

LAS VEGAS - Detectives have arrested a suspect in connection a North Las Vegas homicide that occurred over the weekend.

Jamario Washington, 20, was arrested for allegedly shooting and killing 18-year-old Abigail Brigette Fischl Saturday.

North Las Vegas Police said its investigation showed Fischl was a passenger in a white Jeep when it was shot at by an unidentified assailant. The shooting apparently occurred after an incident at a convenience store near Ann Road and Tropical Parkway. 

Detectives learned that before the shooting, the Fischl and her friend made contact with two black men at the convenience store. After the shooting, Fischl was driven to the hospital by her 24-year-old friend, who hasn't been identified, and that's where she was later pronounced dead.

North Las Vegas Police do not believe this was a random act of violence.

Jamario was booked for murder with a deadly weapon and attempted murder at the Las Vegas City Jail. 

Detectives are still asking for the public's assistance in locating the second subject who was identified as a thin African American man in his early 20's with dreadlocks. He was last seen wearing a dark-colored hooded sweatshirt with khaki pants and black shoes.
