Malik Price was arrested and charged with open murder after an investigation conducted by Metro police indicated that Price struck the man in the head with a brick.
Malik Price is 27 years old.
DETAIL OF INCIDENCE:
According to the arrest report obtained by local CBS station KLAS, a suspect taken into custody following reports of an assault in Las Vegas last week allegedly admitted to committing the crime.
Malik Price, 27, was arrested around midnight on Oct. 3 along Las Vegas Boulevard, according to a press release from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department. Officers were responding to a report of a man down, and the department’s Homicide Section confirmed that the victim was “struck in the head with a brick.”
The release states that officers located the suspect in the crime area and took him into custody. The victim was found unresponsive and pronounced dead at the scene, police said.
According to the coroner’s report, the victim was later identified as 45-year-old Christopher David, and the cause of death was ruled as blunt head trauma.
KLAS reported that multiple witnesses contacted police regarding Price’s alleged behaviour, with one saying they had been punched by an unknown suspect and another who claimed. Price had tried to sell him a gun. The brick allegedly used by Price in the attack was also found near the scene with blood on it, the station reported.
According to the station’s arrest report, Price was allegedly uncooperative during the interview while officers attempted to read him his Miranda rights.
When police stopped the interview due to his refusal to answer questions and began collecting DNA evidence, Price allegedly admitted to the crime, saying, according to the station’s reporting, “I did it. I’m a filthy murderer. Yup, I hit him upside with a tombstone… I saw a sign to be a violent gentleman today.”
Price is being held at a detention centre on a charge of murder. He is scheduled to make his initial court appearance on Monday.
