LAS VEGAS (AP) - Police say a dispute between rival tagging groups led to the slaying of one Las Vegas 17-year-old and the arrest of another on an adult murder charge.
Records show that Mauricio Antonio Mejia was arrested May 30 and arraigned Tuesday in Las Vegas Justice Court on a charge that could get him life in prison in the fatal shooting of Angel Leon Campos.
Mejia is due for a preliminary hearing June 17.
His public defender, Norm Reed, didn't immediately respond Wednesday to messages.
The Las Vegas Review-Journal reports that a second suspected assailant is sought after the May 23 shooting in an apartment complex parking lot.
Campos died days later at University Medical Center.
Police say witnesses identified Mejia wearing a black and white bandanna at the shooting scene.
