The Culprit in a Fatal Stabbing on the Las Vegas Strip Has Been Identified and Charged with Murder
According to the Las Vegas Police Department, the individual who is suspected to have carried out a murderous stabbing rampage in Las Vegas was taken into custody on Thursday night, only a few hours after the crime. After police say, Yoni Barrios, 32, stabbed eight individuals on Las Vegas Boulevard early Thursday morning, he was taken into custody and booked into the Clark County Detention Center on two charges of open murder with a dangerous weapon.
In addition to that, six counts of attempted murder with a dangerous weapon were brought against him. According to a statement released by Deputy Chief James LaRochelle, “this was a unique incidence.” “Every piece of evidence suggests that Barrios acted alone, and at this point, there are no outstanding suspects,” the police said.
It was around 11:42 a.m. when the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department got information that many people had been stabbed in front of a casino on South Las Vegas Boulevard. The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department stated that the rampage began at that time.
According to LaRochelle, the initial stabbing took place on a sidewalk and looked to be “unprovoked.” The Las Vegas police department stated that a total of eight victims had been found. “At the scene of the crime, paramedics proclaimed the death of one of the victims, and later, at University Medical Center, paramedics pronounced the death of another victim. The remaining casualties were sent to local hospitals after the attack.”
According to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, “At this time, three of them are in critical condition and the rest are stable.” Investigators were able to recover a huge kitchen knife, which they suspect was the instrument of violence that was used in the stabbings.
