Perez had been at large since Sept. 2 when he escaped from an interrogation room at the North Las Vegas Police Department. Police say he was able to break out of his handcuffs while a detective was out of the room.

North Las Vegas Police say Perez stole a work truck that was later recovered east of downtown Las Vegas.

He is suspected in the deadly shooting of 31-year-old Mohammad Robinson outside a McDonald’s restaurant on August 27.

Witnesses told police that Perez and Robinson got into an argument after Robinson didn’t hold the door open for a woman.

According to the Clark County Detention Center’s booking files, Perez faces several charges, including: domestic battery, discharging a gun at or into an occupied structure, vehicle, or craft and assault with a deadly weapon. Additional charges are possible.

He is being held without bail.
