Arrest made in slaying of 16-year-old outside grandma's house


A North Las Vegas grandma is mourning the loss of her 16-year-old grandson.

“It's wrong. I guess that's how life is", says Denise Lowe.

Lowe is in disbelief as she speaks about the loss of Aneas King.

The Cheyenne High School sophomore walked out of his grandmother's home near Craig and Simmons saying he had to help a friend.

“A friend came by the house. He was in the house watching TV he and got him. He asked him for help", says Lowe.

North Las Vegas police say shortly after 5 p.m. on Wednesday a gunman shot king while he was walking on the street.

Lowe says she heard the gunshots from her living room.

“He got shot right down the street from the house. I hate to even see the corner. Every time I look at the corner, I see his body laying there."

Lowe says she ran to the scene to hold her grandson in her arms.

“I'm standing right there over him and seeing his face. His eyes open wide. I felt his soul leave right there in front of my face."

Lowe says her grandson did not deserve this because he was never in any trouble.

There is a little relief for this grandmother. News 3 learned an arrest was made on Thursday morning.
