Coroner identifies victim in Siegel Suites shooting

The Clark County coroner’s office on Monday identified the man who was shot and killed at a Siegel Suites.

David Baker, 60, of Las Vegas, died Wednesday from gunshot wounds to the chest, the coroner’s office ruled.

Police were called at 11:48 p.m. that night to the Siegel Suites at 500 E. Bonanza Road after a report of a man on the ground who had been shot, the Metropolitan Police Department said at the time.

Investigators believe Baker was involved in a quarrel with a neighbor before he was shot.

Derick McGruder, 36, was arrested Thursday in connection with the shooting, but details on how he was identified were not available Monday.
