NLVPD seeking assistance in locating person of interest in Dec. 9 homicide

North Las Vegas, NV. - North Las Vegas Police need assistance in locating a person of interest from a homicide on December 9, 2017.

Investigators have identified 21-year-old Jasen Moore-Logswood as a person of interest in the homicide.

On Saturday, December 9 shortly after 10:00 p.m., North Las Vegas Police officers were dispatched to University Medical Center about an 18-year-old female that had been shot. The victim had been transported to the hospital by a 24-year-old male friend, and she later died of the injuries.

The investigation showed the 18-year-old female was a passenger in a white Jeep when it was shot at by an unidentified assailant after an incident at a convenience store near Ann Road and Tropical Parkway. Detectives learned that before the shooting, the victim and the 24-year-old male contacted two black male adults at the convenience store.

The incident is not believed to be a random act of violence.

The first suspect was identified as a thin profiled African American male in his early 20's. He was last seen wearing a dark colored sweatshirt with gray sweatpants.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Jasen is urged to call the North Las Vegas Police Department at 702-633-9111 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
