Police: Suspect in deadly shooting, robbery arrested

LAS VEGAS -- Metro Police arrested the person they said is responsible for a deadly shooting and robbery that occurred at a Walgreens early Friday morning.

Jin Ackerman, 25, is accused of shooting and killing a clerk when he robbed the store located in the 8500 block of West Cheyenne Avenue.

Investigators said around 5 a.m. Ackerman entered the store and kidnapped a female employee at gunpoint, before removing money from the store's safe. Detectives said after he got the cash, Ackerman remained in the store approximately one hour.

A short time later, Ackerman allegedly confronted a male employee, who has been identified by family, friends and co-workers as Antonio "Tony" Isnit, and forced him and the woman clerk into a back room, police said. Metro said that's where Ackerman shot the Isnit several times before fleeing the area.

The female employee, who wasn't identified, called 911 and when officers arrived, they said they found Isnit lying on the floor with multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead by paramedics.

Detectives obtained a search warrant and tracked Ackerman to a home in the 1600 block of April Shower Place. He was taken into custody by the SWAT team.

Ackerman was booked into the Clark County Detention Center; he faces the following charges:

    • First Degree Murder with the use of a weapon
    • Kidnapping with use of a weapon, 4 counts
    • Robbery with use of a weapon, 4 counts
    • Burglary with use of a weapon, 2 counts

Authorities said they also think Ackerman is connected to a different robbery that occurred on December 24, at a Walgreens located in the 9400 block of West Desert Inn Road.

Both robbery incidents are being investigated by Metro Police.
