Las Vegas police are questioning a man they're calling a "person of interest" in Monday's deadly Las Vegas Strip parking lot bombing.
The man was taken into custody last night on unrelated charges -- and his home was searched for clues in the bombing.
The man's identity hasn't been made public. He was taken into custody shortly after 7 p-m last night while driving a vehicle not far from his home south of the Las Vegas Strip.
Police aren't saying what led them to the man -- who's wanted on local warrants for possession of false identification and possession of materials to make false identification.
The development came hours after police released blurry freeze-frame images of a car and appealed for public help to find it and a person who placed the deadly bomb on the victim's car behind the Luxor hotel-casino.
The 4:11 am explosion killed 24-year-old Willebaldo Dorantes Antonio and blew a 12-inch hole in his 1996 Dodge Stratus. A woman who was with Dorantes Antonio escaped injury.
