Se’Mauri Norris-Johnson, 17, was reportedly among a group of teens wearing ski masks who exited a vehicle and approached two ‘juvenile males’ who were out trick-or-treating on Tuesday night.
According to the Las Vegas Police Department, one of the trick-or-treaters fired at the group, resulting in the death of one of the teenagers.
Local media in Las Vegas have reported the death as that of Johnson, a rising star of the Desert Pines High School football team.
Police arrived at the scene, on the 6100 block of Shadow Oak Drive, at approximately 9:45pm, and pronounced the victim dead on arrival.
Posting on X on Wednesday, the school’s Football account wrote: ‘Things don’t make sense sometimes. Gone too young but never forgotten.
‘Our love to friends, family and loved ones hurt by this tragedy. Rest in love kid.’
The post was accompanied by a picture of Johnson, an outside linebacker and strong safety who wore the number 13.
North Las Vegas Police Department homicide detectives have now taken over the investigation and are appealing to the public for further information.
The trick-or-treaters in question were described as ‘juveniles’, with one wearing all black, a red backpack, and a black ski mask.
The second was wearing a white ‘Scream’ mask, and both also had blinking lights on their costumes to make them more visible at night.
