Last suspect arrested in mistaken shooting of NLV girl

The final suspect in a November slaying of an 11-year-old North Las Vegas girl in a mistaken shooting was arrested, according to city police.

Isaac George, 19, was found in San Leandro, Calif., and taken into custody by an FBI-led task force, police said. He is awaiting extradition.

Angelina Erives, who was sitting in the kitchen with her parents and sisters, died shortly after being shot, police said. The family had been working on a science project.

George is the fourth suspect jailed in the Nov. 1 shooting in the 6700 block of Courtney Michelle Street. A fifth suspect was mortally wounded when a neighbor fired into a sedan they were fleeing in.

Detectives determined that the suspects — three who got out of the car to fire in the two-story house — had been targeting a different house in gang-related shooting retaliation, police said.

George, Jarquan Tiffith, 20, and a 16-year-old boy, were the shooters, according to police.

The getaway driver, Erin Hines, 17, was arrested shortly after the shooting, police said. Guy Banks III, 19, a passenger, died two days after, police said.

A military veteran, who told detectives he fired into the car when he sensed danger, is a legal gun owner who hasn’t been accused of a crime. Police Chief Pamela Ojeda said Tuesday night that the Clark County District Attorney’s Office was evaluating his involvement.
