Updated April 10, 2021 - 3:57 pm

Las Vegas police have arrested a 30-year-old man on suspicion of murder after a woman was dropped off at a hospital with a fatal gunshot wound early Friday.

Kevin Osborne was arrested and booked into the Clark County Detention Center on Friday in connection with the woman’s death, Metropolitan Police Department homicide Lt. Ray Spencer said.

About 6:12 a.m. Friday, a woman was dropped off at University Medical Center after she had been shot, Spencer said.

Investigators later determined the shooting happened about 4 miles from the hospital, at an apartment complex on the 1800 block of North Decatur Boulevard, Spencer said Saturday.

Police believe the shooting was “over a prostitution-related theft,” Spencer said. The woman was a passenger in her boyfriend’s car when Osborne, who lived at the complex, fired into the vehicle, hitting the woman.

The woman’s boyfriend then drove her to the hospital, where she died, Spencer said. She will be identified by the Clark County coroner’s office.

Osborne faces a murder charge, and he remained in the detention center on Saturday without bail, court records show.

Further information about his arrest was not immediately available.
