Law Vegas: Man fatally shot in marijuana deal, police say

This just shouldn’t be happening anymore..

A fatal shooting in an east Las Vegas parking lot was the result of a “marijuana transaction” gone wrong, according to a recently released arrest report.

Roman Johnson, 21, faces open murder and robbery charges in the Oct. 20 shooting death of Jared Stevens, 26

Stevens initially called 9-1-1 to report that he’d been shot, according to the report, and officers found him at Silver Bowl Park on East Russell Road suffering from a gunshot wound. He told police that he had come to the park to purchase marijuana.

He was taken to Sunrise Hospital and Medical Center, where he was later pronounced dead.

Homicide detectives began investigating, and they found two cell phones at the scene. One belonged to Johnson, who was also seen on surveillance video in the vehicle involved in the homicide.
