Woman shot, killed in Tahiti Village parking garage

Police said Short, who died from her injuries, was shot. The investigation initiated by the LVMPD Homicide Section indicates Short had been walking with an unknown male an hour before she was found. 

In October, 8 News NOW did a story about Metro Police's facial recognition software. It's all apart of the technical operations section of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department.

"We found her, but we didn't find any identification; no belongings, nothing that would identify or give us a starting point to conduct the investigation," said Lt. Ray Spencer, Metro Police Homicide.

Anyone with any information on Short’s whereabouts in the days prior to August 15, 2018 is urged to contact detectives.
