Joshua Castellon, a 26-year-old man who was arrested on February 16 on a federal weapons charge, has been identified as the man responsible for shooting four homeless people between January 29 and February 2.

LVMPD reports that first shooting took place outside a convenience store in Logandale, Nevada at 12:30 a.m. on January 29. The victim survived. Castellon then reportedly shot two more homeless men that same day in Las Vegas, killing one of his victims.

On February 2, Castellon shot and killed what is believed to be his final victim.

Police eventually identified Castellon as the suspect, and he was arrested on February 16, 2018 by a Special Agent with the Federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

On Tuesday, LVMPD detectives submitted a Declaration of Warrant for the arrest of Castellon for two counts of murder and two counts of attempted murder to the Clark County District Attorney’s Office.
