Report: 2 guns used in triple homicide in North Las Vegas; 1 victim shot and run over

LAS VEGAS - A police report says at least 17 gunshots were fired, two guns were used and a North Las Vegas mother who died with two of her adult children in a convenience store parking lot was both shot and run over by an SUV.

North Las Vegas Police say a family friend was the second gunman in a shooting that left Susan Nash, and two of her adult children, Deonte' Nash and Dejona'e Nash dead in a convenience store parking lot last weekend.

The report identifies Jose Easley Jr. as a shooter and driver of a Chevrolet Tahoe that ran over Susan Nash after she and other family members walked to the store to confront him about an argument he had earlier with another family member.

The family member said Easley had put a gun to his head.

Police say a family friend was the second gunman in the deadly shooting.

Officer Aaron Patty tells The Associated Press the man is not in custody and has not yet been interviewed by detectives.  Patty says it appears the friend exchanged gunfire with Easley.

Easley was arrested Wednesday and booked on the chargers related to the three Nash family members deaths.
