Police tell us that the shooting suspect they were looking for, Kareem Thomas, is now in custody.

They found him Wednesday night just before 10 p.m. He's booked in the Washoe County Jail without incident on the charges of Open Murder, Possession of a Firearm by a Prohibited Person, and Carrying a Concealed Weapon. 


Sparks police confirmed in a statement that the victim in a Monday night shooting that took place on the 2200 block of Greenbrae Drive died in the hospital Wednesday. Police say 31-year-old Michael Frost was shot following an argument that turned into gunfire late Monday night.

Detectives say this case is now being investigated as a homicide, and they have identified 22-year-old Kareem Thomas Jr as a suspect in the case, but as of now, Kareem has not been arrested. He is described as a black, male adult, 5’08”,160 lbs. with a tattoo above his left eye.  A photograph of the suspect is attached to this story.

If you have any information that can help authorities, call Secret Witness at 322-4900, or text your tip to 847411.
