LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas judge more than tripled bail for a 22-year-old ex-convict arrested this week and charged with wounding an 8-year-old boy with a stray bullet during a drive-by shooting.
Las Vegas Justice of the Peace Eugene Martin raised Carlos Reyes' bail Friday from $40,000 to $140,000.
Reyes is being held at the Clark County jail on two felony counts of attempted murder with a deadly weapon and other charges in the July 25 shooting. Police say it was over a drug debt.
Police say the boy was with his 13-year-old sister and three younger siblings when he was wounded in the chest and shoulder by a shot fired from a passing car. He is expected to survive.
Authorities say Reyes previously served prison time for burglary.
