The backyard intruder fatally shot by a Summerlin homeowner Tuesday morning has been identified as a Las Vegas teen, according to the Clark County Coroner's Office.

Demarcus Carter, 19, died from multiple gunshot wounds, the coroner said. His death was ruled a homicide.

The situation unfolded shortly before 9:30 a.m. when a homeowner in the 2100 block of Spurs Court, near Hualapai Way and Sahara Avenue, reported the shooting, Metro Police said.

For media-preferred minorities, they’ll push the “teen” angle up to 19 years and 364 days.

"With an extensive criminal record..."

That's In-admissable.....in Court, you are not allowed to disclose that a Defendant is a 12-time loser, and finally got his due, since it will "prejudice" the Jury.

The two most depressing things in a Trial are 1)allowing a Plea Bargain down to a trifle offense, to save "Court Time and Taxpayer Money", or 2) The criminal history of a Defendant cannot be disclosed, as it would adversely prejudice the Jury.

One day soon, we're gonna see people start lynching perps on the spot, and it's probably not too distant in the future.

In fact, with CCW, I really believe that many repeat offenders are being removed, permanently, in self-defense.

The guy in Florida stalks the teen walking through the neighborhood before he shoots and kills him. No charges...so far and probably won’t be. The homeowner shoots a perceived while he’s in his own house and the DA is deciding whether to press charges. Doesn’t Nevada have a Castle Doctrine like the other states? Something isn’t right in this story.

This reminds me of the movie Airplane. Considering the shooting of Trayvon Martin in Florida, it looks like this guy picked the wrong day to kill an intruder in his back yard.

The DA’s playing it safe with not commenting one way or the other. Considering this was yesterday, I suspect the investigation is ongoing.

Las Vegas cops shoot a man with CCP in a Costco parking lot = legal shoot.

Las Vegas man shoots perp in his own yard = homicide.

What’s up with the LV DA’s office?

Well, now "Demarcus" be a good home invader. It was only a matter of time before this piece of crap got his. I just thank the stars above he didn't take any innocent lives with him.

In life, you make your choices, and you accept the consequences of them.

Buh-bye, D-marc. Good riddance.

Just wait until “Reverends” Al & Jesse get involved. by the time they get the civil rights industry reved up, the guy will be charged with murder, violation of the “teenager's” civil rights, a hate crime and probably spitting on the sidewalk. I have a feeling it is going to get a lot worse in the next few years.

This guy would have been arrested on the spot if he lived in Connecticut. A homeowner is still expected to retreat and hide inside his own house when an intruder breaks in. Some people think an intruder might leave them alone if they talk nice to him and offer him milk and cookies.

homicide is merely a term used to describe the death of one human by another. Does not imply a crime as in justifiable homicide and is different from murder, a crime

"neighbors...described the area as a generally quiet and seemingly safe environment. Police said there had not been any noticeable crime increases in the area."

And it's likely to remain that way.
