3 arrested in early morning shooting
Three men were jailed early this morning following a shooting outside of a northeast Carson City nightclub.
Santiago Robles-Llamas, 21; Jose Luis Llamas-Rios, 21, and Augustine Nava, 19, are each being held in the Carson City Jail on suspicion of felony assault with a deadly weapon and gross misdemeanor discharging a firearm in a populated area.
According to Carson City Sheriff’s Detective Bob Motamenpour, officers were called out to Club JB Latin Nightclub on Old Hot Springs Road just before 5 a.m. on the report of shots fired in the area.
When police arrived, witnesses reported that three men were inside the nightclub when an argument broke out. The men left and then returned later with a gun.
“They grabbed an unknown victim, had him in a headlock and fired several rounds next to his head into the ground,” said Motamenpour. “Another suspect came back and started shooting into the air.”
Motamenpour said the three then fled into a nearby field.
At daybreak officers located evidence in the field, and GPS was able to track a signal on one of the suspect’s cell phones to a home in the 4000 block of Louise Drive.
Investigators found Robles-Llamas, Llamas-Rios and Nava in the basement of the home about 8 a.m., said Motamenpour.
Three weapons were also allegedly recovered from a motor home on the property.
Motamenpour said deputies were unable to locate the victim. It’s not thought that anyone was hit by the gunfire.
Anyone with information on this incident is asked to call Carson City Sheriff’s non-emergency dispatch number at 887-2007 and ask for Detective Motamenpour.
Robles-Llamas, Nava and Llamas-Rios are each being held on $20,000 bail.
