    Police say a family friend was the second gunman in a shooting that left a North Las Vegas mother and two adult children dead in a convenience store parking lot last weekend.

    Officer Aaron Patty tells The Associated Press the man is not in custody and has not yet been interviewed by detectives piecing together details of the Sunday evening killings of Susan Nash, son Deonte' Nash and daughter Dejona'e Nash.

    Patty says it appears the friend exchanged gunfire with Jose Easley Jr., who was arrested Wednesday as the shooter and driver of a Chevrolet Tahoe that also ran over a Susan Nash.

    A police report says at least 17 shots were fired from two guns.

    Police say gunfire erupted after Nash family members walked to the store to confront Easley about an earlier argument with another family member who said Easley had put a gun to his head.
