City police are trying to determine the motivation behind a recent killing on Chavez Street, an area that officials say has been a hot spot for crime.
Louie Bena-videz, 54, of Las Vegas, is charged with an open count of murder in connection with the killing of Kevin Duran, 32, 814 Chavez St.
On the night of Sept. 25, Duran was fatally shot outside his house. Police Chief Gary Gold said his officers have heard that Benavidez and Duran were cousins, but they haven’t confirmed that information.
