Police Lt. Jason Johansson said the shooting was a “targeted attack” after Perez got into a dispute with a relative in the area, NBC affiliate KSNV of Las Vegas reported. More details were not released, according to the station.

Perez was booked on two counts of open murder and three counts of attempted murder, police said. Au Young was booked on two counts of open murder and one count of conspiracy to commit murder.

Online court records did not show an attorney for Perez or Au Young.

Investigators still want anyone with information to contact the police department, it said in a statement.
